20 FORMS OF BIRTH CONTROL
Children can be a blessing, but lets face it not everyone is prepared to have kids. So for those of you who are not ready for child rearing this article is for you. I will list and detail 20 forms of birth control. Yes I said 20! So with using one of these methods, or combining a couple you should be able to protect yourself from getting impregnated.
1. Abstinence – The act of refraining from having sex or sexual activity. Lets face it, for most of us this is not even an option we would consider. We enjoy sex so much!
2. Withdrawal (Pull Out Method) – Pull your dick out of her pussy before you cum! This method is not always effective and will not prevent STD’s.
3. Vasectomy – With a vasectomy the doctor will close or block the tubes that carry semen. This cost on average between $350-$1000. Most men are terrified of having their scrotum cut so the next method might be better for you. Will not prevent STD’s.
4. Condoms – Condoms are a great means of birth control. Once you find the correct fit be it regular, magnum or XL. Using a condom that is to small can cause it to break. Use a condom that is to large and it can fall off inside of your woman. Dont be a prick use the correct size. If used properly condoms will prevent pregnancy and STD’s. Always remember if in doubt double wrap it.
