"Can I end my own pregnancy by falling down the stairs or drinking an herbal tea?"

"No, you can’t end your own pregnancy by falling down the steps or using an herbal remedy. There are a lot of myths about how to end a pregnancy. It is impossible to tell which ones might work, which ones don’t work and which ones can be very dangerous to your health and even your life."

"Can I reuse a condom?"

"No Phillip. Reuse of any condom is not recommended – male or female. A new condom should be used every time you have intercourse."

"Is using two condoms better than one in avoiding pregnancy?"

"Using two condoms at the same time-either two male condoms or a male and female condom- is not a good idea as the friction may result in one or both of the condoms tearing. If you want to take extra precautions against pregnancy when having sex, and are concerned about the possibility of a condom breaking it is better to use another form of contraception. For example, using a contraceptive pill, patch, vaginal ring or IUS as well as a condom will ensure that you both have double protection against pregnancy as well as protection against STIs."
