Birth control can be a touchy subject for some women, and it can be an extremely uncomfortable topic for most guys. However, having a conversation about it is important if you plan on hooking up with a woman more than once. You may not want to talk about it, but asking her to get on birth control can be seriously beneficial to both of you. It may not be the easiest thing to bring up, but it will definitely be worth it in the long run. Knowing all of the reasons why you should bother asking her to get on birth control will convince you to give it a shot.
It Adds a Layer of Protection
“It will keep you safe”
No form of birth control is completely effective. Condoms aren’t always effective and there is always a risk of something going wrong. Having the woman you’re sleeping with get on birth control will add another layer of protection and safety. The chances of her getting pregnant if you use a condom and she’s on birth control are laughably slim. This is one of the biggest reasons why it’s worth asking her to get on birth control. It will ease both of your minds and make sex more enjoyable, since you won’t be worrying about protection or accidents at all.
You Don’t Have to Worry about Always Having a Condom
Carrying condoms around all the time can be annoying. Nothing is worse than going to hook up with a woman only to realize that you don’t have condoms with you. It kills the mood and probably kills your chances at getting lucky, too. If your girlfriend is on birth control, then you don’t always have to worry about having a condom with you. If you know each other well enough she will likely be willing to go bareback every now and then in case you don’t have any condoms on hand. Obviously, this will make sex much more enjoyable and you won’t have to always second guess yourself and check to make absolutely certain that you have condoms with you. It’s a great way to take some of the stress out of hooking up.
It Can Benefit Her in Other Ways
“That’s how it benefits both of you”
Birth control for women isn’t just about making sure that she does not get pregnant. It can also be very beneficial for a number of health reasons. It can make her period much less painful, which will wind up benefiting you in the end as well, of course. If she gets bad cramps or mood swings, the right type of birth control can seriously help her with those symptoms. It can also help women clear up acne and it can even make her breasts get bigger. There is practically no downside to trying to convince your girlfriend to get on birth control, so you may as well decide to do it. She’s probably already been considering it. The fact that you’re bringing it up may be enough to make her decide to go ahead and do it.
