My boyfriend wants to do anal sex. My main worry is getting pregnant. Is it possible to get pregnant after anal sex?

If you don't want to take the big risks -- STIs, pregnancy, etc. -- then anal sex isn't the thing to do, especially unprotected.

The anus is mighty close to the vaginal opening, so semen can move from the anus to the vagina easily. As well, when it comes to STIs and other infections, anal sex is just as risky, sometimes more so.

Those risks can be reduced with safer sex and contraception, however, if this is something YOU want to do.

You say it's something your boyfriend wants. What do you want? Is this something you're interested in for yourself, too? have you found that other kinds of anal stimulation feel good for you before?
