Hello! My questions will never end... ikkk

Just out of curiousity (I am so uneducated hehe)... I have heard myths that even though a girl is on birthcontrol ( I ran a search on it but couldn't find an answer to my question), having sex on the first day (or 2nd) of her period increases chances of pregency... is that true? It doesn't sound right to me but just wondeR?

Also are after sex pains normal? My girlfriend gets them almost everytime and I feel really bad...

If by being on birth control, you mean taking oral contraceptives, no, that is not true.

So long as the pill is taken preoperly, it's effectiveness is exactly the same every day. However, as one on four young people will have an STD or STI by the time they're in their mid-twenties based on the rates now, it simply isn't smart to NOT pair oral contraceptives with condoms and other safer sex tools anyway.

I'm not sure what you mean by "after-sex pains." But, if your partner is experiencing pelvic or abdominal pains, no, that is not normal, and is something she needs to see her GYN about. If what you're talking about is vulval soreness, that can happen, but if proper lubrication is used and you don't overdo it, it doesn't happen often.

There are truly no SAFE days and whether she can accurately predict her chart or not, her projected days of fertility could be off.

As Miz Scarlett said, it's important to use a condom with oral contraception all the time because birth control does fail.

mnsouthpawjr, you've already been asked not to re-title Scarleteen articles when you link to them. The article you linked to is actually called Margaret Sanger’s Disneyland - An easy chart of your birth control options.

As Miz S said:

Just to make it clear, too: DryEye was asking about fertility while taking oral contraceptives. And when taken correctly there ARE no days which are more or less fertile on the pill.

So, charting in this scenario is a non-issue.
And you're welcome, Dry.
