Making a case for menstruation.

Inter Generational Dialogue 2018


"Can a woman get pregnant using the withdrawal method of birth control?"

"Pulling out before the man ejaculates, known as the withdrawal method, is not a foolproof method for birth control. Some ejaculate (fluid that contains sperm) may be released before the man actually climaxes. In addition, some men may not have the willpower or be able to withdraw in time."

"Is it true that girls who use contraception cannot menstruate? ~ Anonymous"

"While this is possible, it is important for us to acknowledge that everyone has a different and unique experience using contraception. While one may not menstruate at all, another may have heavier or lighter periods while another’s cycle may not be affected in any noticeable way."

"Can you can get an STI from a toilet seat?"

"No, you can not! You get STIs by having sex (vaginal, oral or anal) or by skin-to-skin touching--not from toilet seats."
