Anonymous said: to what age do you accept people to walk into your clinic? It says teens but does that mean you cut off 18 year olds or no? I'm too embarrassed to go to planned parenthood and most of my family members go there :(

But if you still want to be extra careful, make sure to use condoms every time you have sex :)

Do’s and Don’ts of putting on a condom

So you just had sex and need to throw away the condom. Only problem is, you’re not really sure what’s the best way to do this. 

First off - DON’T hang up your condoms to dry to later reuse them. They are good for a one time use only!

So even if it looks nice… don’t! 

Also, try to avoid hiding the condom somewhere in your clothes.

The sneaky condom can peak out for the world to see and cause some embarrassing moments.

But seriously - DON’T throw away condoms in the toilet. It’ll clog up and you’ll have to call the plumber and it might get awkward.

Instead, DO wrap the used condom in some toilet paper and throw it in the trash can.

And voila! Disposing of a condom is that easy.

Anonymous said: hi, I was wondering if precum could cause pregnancy & if so, is it too late to take birth control or anything else to stop the pregnancy before it begins? Me & my boyfriend had unprotected sex (I know very stupid) a week ago, & i haven't gotten my period yet. My last period came on dec. 31st, but I've always had an irregular period. I haven't taken a pregnancy test yet because I want to wait a week after my missed period to be sure. I'm just worried because i know how irresponsible itwas

Hello! So first thing’s first - it is possible to get pregnant with precum, but the odds are very low. It is still very important to use a birth control method every time a person has sex. And in terms of preventing pregnancy, it seems like it might be too late for emergency contraception, or the “day after pill”. You can take this pill up to 5 days after unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy. If you want to take a pregnancy test, make sure to take it, the earliest, 2 weeks after having unprotected sex so you can get accurate results :)
