Is there any way to have safe sex without using condom or anythng else? I and my partner are 20 and 19 years respectively

The biological purpose of sex is to create offspring, so naturally, there is no safe "natural" way to avoid getting pregnant. A couple can be safe from STD diseases if neither person has HIV, nor has had sex with another person. ...Read more

I have protective sex every time but before doing it, it goes in for 10 secs or so without one. Can I still get pregnant? Condom is never broken. Safe?
Not safe: Any act of penetration, even for a second, can cause a pregnancy. And I typically advise my patients that there are no 'safe' days in a cycle. If you aren't ready to become a parent, then it's best to use 2 methods of birth control. Condoms prevent pregnancy about 70% of the time, so over the course of a year, 30 couples using condoms will become pregnant. Not great odds if you're not ready. ...Read more

Do Your Own Research: Yeah, get your head tested. What you doin', bro? This is not the century of "unknown" partners. And for 30 seconds? Well, "to each his own, " as they say. Which also means "you own it.' Anyways, an intact condom should do the trick, especially after only a 30-second exposure. But who knows what'll happen in the future...Overall, though "proper" protection is the best you can do, which is pretty good ...Read more

After confirmation: It is recommended that you see your doctor in 1 to 2 weeks after your abortion you ensure that the procedure has been completed and you are no longer pregnant.

Me and my boyfriend of 10 years have only had one coldsore in our lives as kids. We never used condoms. Is oral sex safe since no symptoms?
No risk: If both you and your boyfriend had oral herpes with typical cold sores (blister or pimple-like outbreaks on the outside of the lips, not canker sores inside) then you both have HSV1. People are immune to new infection with the HSV type they already have, anywhere on the body. So even with an outbreak, and certainly without one, you will not infect one another by oral sex. No risk and no worries! ...Read more
