  • Condoms

    I'm a virgin but have gotten to a level with my boyfriend where I feel like we're going to do it. I can't be on birth control pills because of their side effects (ie weight gain, bone density loss). Are condoms the best option? I can not get pregnant, I never want to. Are condoms enough?

  • For your situation, it would seem condoms would be the next best option, but please understand there're not 100% effective and having intercourse comes with many risks including pregnancy and STDs. Many women have gotten pregnant while still using a condom. If your nervous about the side effects of hormonal birth control I would recommend perhaps a non-hormonal contraception like a IUD. But be aware that everyone's body is different and receive different side effects from hormonal birth control if any at all.
