Pregnancy Myth:

I don’t have sex often enough to use a regular birth control, such as the Pill.


If a woman’s sexual activity is sporadic, there are other methods that can be used on an as-needed basis. These include condoms (most effective in combination with a spermicide) and the Today Sponge. The Sponge remains effective for 24 hours, so a woman can insert it in the morning for an entire day of protection. However, some women appreciate the constant protection afforded by regular birth control such as the Pill, the Patch, the Ring, the Shot, IUDs, etc., so that they’re always prepared for spontaneous sexual activity.
