The other night I was dancing with a guy at Club Pure and he wanted me to go home with him.
Getting into bed with someone you don’t know can be unsafe. What if he has an STI or you’re not on the same page about condoms and birth control?
So you went home with him, what can you do now? First things first, if you didn’t use any protection at all, meaning no condom and you’re not on birth control, check out emergency contraception immediately. It can prevent pregnancy if you use it within five days. Then talk to your medical provider about STIs and get a plan to get tested.
Now let’s get to the longer-term solutions: Choose a birth control method that fits your life. Always carry condoms. Know your STI status and practice asking about your partners about theirs.
