Ways to prevent pregnancy besides condoms while on birth control?

Confused. Your birth control method should prevent pregnancy. What are you using? If you want extra protection you could use a spermicide gel/cream or a diaphragm...But they will not add that much extra to an otherwise effective contraceptive method.

Does birth control prevent pregnancy just as well as a condom? I'm currently only using the birth control but I'm taking it religiously.

A little better ... By "birth control" I presume you mean birth control PILLS. If you take "the pill" exactly as directed, fewer than 1/100 women using this will become pregnant in a year. Interestingly, the condom is also VERY effective: if you use it exactly as directed only 2/100 will become pregnant/year. Few people use perfectly, so more failures. Congratulations on being so responsible at such a young age:) Read more...

Does condom prevent pregnancy? My girl is not on birth control, and I am worried about that the condom maybe breaks inside here?

If it breaks.... A condom does provide good birth control if used properly and it does not break. If it does break (a problem with this method of birth control), pregnancy can result. There are other more reliable forms of birth control out there (iud, ocps, depot provera, (medroxyprogesterone) etc.). It is a matter of personal choice with regard to what risk you are willing to take. Read more...

The condom fits inside of the vagina, is fully protective as well and is not tight against the erect penis. Read more...

15% failure rate. The failure rate of condoms in typical use is 15%, meaning of 100 couples relying on condoms at the beginning of a year, 15 will be pregnant by the end of the year. Using condoms plus a spermicide (vaginal suppository, jelly, cream, film) lowers the risks of failure. Condoms can slip off or break. Couples who rely on condoms need to know about emergency contraception as well, given the 15% failure. Read more...

Is birth control pills, condoms, and a vasectomy a good combo of contraceptives to prevent pregnancy?

Contraception . Yes. All 3 of those together are very protective against pregnancy. Generally speaking, pregnancy would not be an issue after a male partner has obtained a vasectomy.
