Do I need to go with her to the health clinic? I’m not the one that needs birth control.


Safe sex is a team effort.  You don’t need birth control, but you and your partner do need to get tested for STIs. Getting tested and getting your partner an effective birth control method ensures you will have safe and protected sex. Nothing makes sex more enjoyable than knowing you are being safe and preventing a possible pregnancy—who wants sex to be full of worry about “what ifs”? So long story short, you don’t have to go…but you definitely should.
