Is using condoms necessary even if my girlfriend is taking an I-pill later?

Question : Do I absolutely have to use a condom when I have sex? Can’t my girlfriend just take an I-pill afterwards? It’s so much easier! Teentalker , 18-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

I’m glad you’re weighing your contraceptive options! Quick answer: yes, you absolutely have to use a condom and, no, your girlfriend cannot take the pill as an alternative to a condom! There are solid reasons behind this.

  • You must use a condom – emergency contraceptives are for extreme, last resort emergencies and can mess with your girlfriend’s hormones (irregular period, mood, skin, hair, weight gain, etc)
  • Emergency contraceptives do not protect against STIs and pregnancy
