Have you heard the one that says if a girl douches after sex she is less likely to get pregnant? Or that a guy can’t get a girl pregnant if he pulls out? These are just some of the myths out there about preventing pregnancy. Of course they’re not true, but it doesn’t stop people from believing them and passing them on to their friends!
