My boyfriend and I are not planning on having vaginal sex anytime soon, but when I went to PP, they gave it to me anyway, just in case I changed my mind (I'm not going to.. I'm soooo waiting.)
Anyway! Since we're not having vaginal sex, and we're both passed our STD screenings, and we've been together for 15 months, should we just make sure that hands are washed in between playing with each other to prevent any pregnancy risks? I really don't want to go on BC when we could just take a minute or two and go wash hands. What do you all think?
Do keep in mind though that we suggest waiting at least one full cycle of BC before you consider it effective. So if you intend to participate in activities that present a risk, you'll want to plan ahead and have been taking the pill regularly and correctly for a full month before you rely on it.
