My boyfriend and I are thinking about having sex. I just surfed on to this page tonight-- I read the checklist-- you can bet he's going to be getting the link tonight --and I am very impressed by it. We know we want sex for all the right reasons-- we will be safe, we have never had any other partners, and we love each other. The only reason we wouldn't do it is because of risk of pregnancy. We both have high goals and bright futures, and do not want to risk that. We feel fairly confident that it won't happen, since I have been on Ortho Tri Cyclen for acne since October, and am still taking it CORRECTLY, and he will for sure wear a condom CORRECTLY. I know that the failure rate for birth control pills (Ortho specifically) is less that 1% when taken correctly. If Tom wears a condom correctly, will that bring our risk to zero? Thanks so much for your greatinformation!

Thank you so much for your responses. This really helped me out. I cannot say how wonderful this site is! I've sent my boyfriend here for the condom guide and the sex readiness checklist and more! If there's one thing I think we're doing right, it's talking OPENLY about this. This is one thing we don't want to screw up. Thank you again!
I just wanted to say congratulations for trying to go in to sex as educated and safely as possible. There are so many problems that could be prevented if there were more people like you in the world.
