How to Wrap Your Willy… or use a condom.

So, your ready to use condoms. How do these candy wrapper looking things even work?

Don’t worry, the SYHC Teen Clinic has your back 🙌.

First.
Check the expiration date. You wouldn’t want to drink expired milk right? Same with using a condom. So check, check, check.

Second.
Check for an air bubble. Why an air bubble? To make sure there are no holes in the condom, or whatever. Think, potato chips before opening. If you squeeze it, you can feel it (the bubble that is 😩😏).

Slide Condom to Side.
If the condom is lubricated, it can be squeezed to the side to make it safer and easier to open.

Use the Ridges.
Open the condom by tearing it on the side… DO NOT use your teeth to try and make it look all sexy. DO NOT use scissors to open it either. You may miss and tear something.

Sombrero Side Up.
Once the condom is out, hold it so that it looks like a “sombrero” or a beanie to make sure it’s going to be put on the right way. As a test push the condom down, if it’s starts unrolling that’s the way it should be placed over the penis. If it doesn’t roll, flip it. Test the roll BEFORE putting it on the penis.

Pinch the Tip.
Place the condom on the penis while pinching the tip. The pinched tip leaves room at the top for sperm chill, inside the condom.

Then Roll.
With the tip still pinched, roll condom downward, towards the pelvis.

Until….

…After.
When your finished, remove the condom. Do this AWAY from the area where it was used; no accidents right? Place it in a napkin

And toss in the trash. NOT the toilet because it can clog it 😬😳.

That’s it. If you need more click the link below. Condom Man will show you step by step.

I don’t know if I’m pregnant

Anonymous question asked….

I’m worried that I might be pregnant. I don’t know what do do. I need help.

Hi Anonymous,

The only way to find out for sure if a person is pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. Generally it’s best if they are taken 2 weeks after intercourse to ensure accuracy. Here is the number to the teen clinic if you would like to call or text to make an appointment. 619-800-8336.

Anonymous said: So I've only bought conforms once, and that was with my friend before my first time (she was supporting me), but then my next Facebook said he'd supply them, and he did. But something came up about condoms with this new guy I'm hoping to have as a Facebook, he said lifestyle, but I don't know. What brand do you recommend?

Condoms come in different colors and styles it’s personal preference whichever ones the person likes. So basically it doesn’t matter what brand the person uses, they all protect against stds and pregnancy equally when used correctly. Use the ones that you and your partner like best.

The teen who wore a condom to school →

This is so brilliant.  SYHC  Teen Clinic dreams of the day when a courageous person at a High School in San Diego does something like this. If we were at the school this would be us.

💖 Your Boobies

Finally October has arrived!

With it comes breast cancer awareness month. Not to worry, breast cancer is not very common in teens. Phew…

If you want to learn more about breast cancer, here is a link with easy to understand info.

http://kidshealth.org/kid/grownup/conditions/breast_cancer.html

Don’t forget to remind your mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, family, and friends to check their breasts. They will thank you later.

And although breast cancer is common in women it can also affect men. So remind them too.


You can tell them to make an appointment with the doctor to get their breast checked.

And if you feel comfortable…Here is a link you can share with them on how to do a breast exam.

Think Pink this October. A simple reminder can help save a life

Yes to California becoming the first state to pass a law like this one. Now people who want to have sexual intercourse must make a conscious decision on whether or not they agree to have sex. Soooo if they decide to have sex they must consent  by saying yes. Silence, being drunk,  drugged, not fighting back or being unconscious does not mean agreeing to have sex. Remember it’s still ok to say no if you don’t want to do it. #californiasexualassaultlaw #consent #california #yesmeansyes #pacificbeachpier #crystalpier #sandiego #California #law #info

It’s all over the news…so what does this mean? Basically a new law passed saying that people need to agree  if they want to have sex. It needs to be a voluntary agreement by saying yes. #yesmeansyes #california #questiontuesdays #teens #agree #consentissexy #askfirst #askme #daily #comic #comicquestion #igers #highschool #yesterday #californiasexualassaultlaw #yes #consent
