So my girlfriend and I live in different states. We see each other maybe 2 times a month if we're lucky but our love is too strong to let distance separate us. So when we do see each other, we have sex. A lot. As of recently, she mentioned what it would be like for me to finish inside of her. Obviously, being a young teenage couple, we both want to do it for pleasure and new experience. I'm definately not ready for a child being a college freshman, but she told me about her friends doing the same and taking the "plan b" pill and it worked for all of them. Of course I want to do this, but I also don't want a baby (right now). So I guess my question is should I do it? Is it worth it?
Plan B is purely for emergencies, in that it's better than nothing. It doesn't work if the woman is already fertile (ovulating), & even then, it is less reliable than regular hormonal birth control.
There is also the risk of STDs.
If you want to have intercourse without a condom, then it's far better that your partner sorts out some regular birth control. If she doesn't want to use hormonal birth control, then she could be taught how to use a diaphragm/cap with spermicide, for example.
I deal with many women here that have to come to terms with the fact that Plan B didn't work for them. It's really not worth the risk, when you consider what could happen & how it could affect your future, if not ready for a baby at this time. Financially it would also have a huge impact on your next 20 years.
