Having Unprotected Sex on Menstruation Period
This is one of the most common perceptions in girls that they will not get pregnant if they have unprotected sex during menstruation period or during the first or last part of their menstrual cycle. This is not completely true because you can guarantee anything. You may not get pregnant, but at the same time, sometimes, you may be more likely to become pregnant during that period. What is more, sometimes the probability of conceiving may be much higher than it might be at any other time of the month. Last, but not the least, as a girl you must know, after having unprotected sex, the sperms can live up to five days in your body.
Your Partner Pulls Out Before Ejaculation
This is another one of the biggest wrong perception that girls have that they will not get pregnant if their partner pulls out before he ejaculates. Again, there is no guarantee as such. You can certainly become pregnant even if your sex partner pulls out before ejaculation. The reason is before he ejaculates, a small amount of lubricating fluid is already released and that contains sperm. In fact, medically, no matter if your partner pulls out before ejaculation or not, each penetration of your vagina by the penis can make you pregnant.
Use of Vaginal Douches after Sex
Some girls perceive that if they use vaginal douches or take bath or shower after sexual intercourse, they will prevent pregnancy. Well, this is also a baseless myth. The fact is no matter if you take bath or use vaginal douches after the intercourse, the sperm has already traveled up towards the egg. Therefore, if you think it works, let me tell you frankly taking bath or using vaginal douches has nothing to do with preventing pregnancy. What is more, vaginal douching is almost never a good idea. It is not a healthy habit.
Having Sex for the First Time
Again, the perception that you will not get pregnant if you make love for the first time is also simply untrue. In fact, the truth is that younger girls are supposed to be more fertile than older women. If you have started your period, you can certainly get pregnant even if you have sex for the first time. Therefore, never believe your boyfriend if he sweet talks you by saying that you will not get pregnant as he wants to have sex only once, not again. If you agree, insist for protected sexual intercourse.
This way, we see most of the popular conceptions in younger girls are sheer perceptions and has nothing to do with the reality. As a prudent girl, you must keep in mind these things if you want to enjoy a better sex life.
