"My boyfriend says we don’t need contraception, because he will pull out at the last minute. Is this a good idea?"

"Not really. Withdrawal, or coitus interruptus as it's known, is not a good way to avoid pregnancy – partly because boys may leak sperm before they come. Also, guys have a dangerous tendency to 'stay in that little bit longer' – until it's too late. Do not risk if you are not ready to have a baby. You need to visit a health worker to decide which contraception method(s) works for both of you."

"Can fingering or a hand job lead to pregnancy or an STD?"

"There’s almost no risk of pregnancy from fingering or hand jobs. If a person has dirty hands and touches another person’s genitals, they can spread germs or bacteria. It’s possible, but not likely, to spread a sexually transmitted disease (STD) this way. However, there’s a very small chance of starting a pregnancy if semen gets on one partner’s finger and that finger is put immediately into the vagina. It’s a good idea to wash hands before and after any sexual contact."

"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."
