MYTH: Two condoms are safer than one Although you might think that an extra layer will offer you extra protection, this isn’t true, and using two condoms actually increases the risk of them splitting or breaking.
MYTH: You can’t get pregnant if you go to the loo or douche straight after sex Going to the loo or douching (washing the inner and outer female genitals) won’t help to prevent a pregnancy.
Again, this is down to sperm being fantastic swimmers.
Sperm are very strong swimmers and gravity alone is not going to stop them reaching and trying to fertilise an egg!
If you don’t use contraception then it’s possible for a woman to get pregnant whatever position you were having sex in.
We don’t know of any research that shows the pill or most other types of contraception to be associated with weight gain.
