Russian roulette: Is russian roulette safe? By having unprotected sex, i assume with lots of men, you are exposing yourself to sexually transmitted diseases, harm to your mental health, risk of pregnancy and exploitation.

If : If you have been having unprotected sex for years, and are not successful at becoming pregnant, then you do fall under the catergory of infertile. Now, if you have the same partner, you have to remember your partner may be the cause. One out of three cases of infertility involves the man. If the male partner is the cause there are many explanations. Some common causes of male infertility are: age sperm issues (count, production) lifestyle issues(drugs, obesity, marijuana abuse) cancer and effects of treatment on the other hand, causes of female infertily include but are not limited to: fallopian tube damage or blockage, usually caused by untreated chlamydia infection endometriosis ovulation disorders medications elevated prolactin hormone polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) early menopause medications thyroid problems certain cancers as you see the list is very long. You and your partner will need a complete infertility work up, either by your gynecologist or an infertility specialist. Hopefully the cause of your infertility is identified and an appropriate treatment regimen can be initiated, with the goal being a successful pregnancy. Good luck!

Some are more foolproof than others. If you have a question about a particular form of BC please start over & ask. Your posts on this site are not linked, so each must have all relevant info.
