Intercourse Precaution


If you are sexually active, there are some precautions you must take. Having sex is not about hormones and pleasure only. It comes with responsibilities. Not being cautious during sex can result in pain, reproductive organ injury, accidental pregnancy, STI (sexually transmitted illness), and more. 

Some of these accidents can last a lifetime and change your life completely. If this is your first time, looking into first-time sex precautions  can help. The last thing you want is to end up with any STIs, warts, or accidental pregnancy. 

Choose Partner/s Carefully

While many people suggest having one sexual partner is the safest option, that is not always the case. Many people have contracted STIs because of unfaithful partners. But that doesn’t mean, you should never trust your partner. 

Whether you have sex with one person regularly or with several people, you must choose someone who is reliable and trustworthy. People who are willing to listen to you, understand your body, don’t hide their commitment status or any prior STIs, and are willing to use contraceptives are good choices. 

Don’t have sex with anyone who is forcing, manipulating, or hurting you. Coerce sex is sexual assault. All parties involved in sexual practice must give full consent.  

Contraceptive! Contraceptive!! 

Unless you and your partner have a prior trust to not use any contraceptive or you’re trying to conceive, it is essential that you use any form of contraceptive[link]. There are varied choices you can pick from. Whether it be condoms, birth control pills, IUDs, or vaginal rings, you should use whatever works for you and your partner.

Why should you use it? Because unprotected sex can result in pregnancy or STIs. Don’t take a gamble with the pull-out method. It doesn’t always work. Moreover, not using a condom could lead to STIs and lifelong complications. 

 Many people think the emergency pill [link] after every intercourse is the solution to all woes. This isn’t true. You can take the emergency pill 1-2 times but when you make it a habit, it will not only ruin your reproductive health but your overall health too, especially your renal system. 

Get a Checkup Done

This is to ensure your and your partner/s safety. Getting regular checkups [link] is helpful for your body. If you are sexually active, get pelvic examinations, pap smear tests, and STI testing is done regularly. Similarly, you should inspect your body for rash, discharge, or bruises after intercourse. 

For those who don’t have access to these tests, it would be best to refrain from intercourse. The pain from STIs or any accidents from intercourse is higher than any pleasure you will get. Unless you can practice safe sex, don’t take a gamble on your life. 


Many people skip out on this part and use whatever is available. Don’t do that. Before having sex, have towels, tissue, condom, and lube with you. Using a towel on the bed makes it easy to clean up. Both male and female condoms are available in many varieties. 

Also, it’s important to use a lubricant. Not all women can get wet naturally and some don’t produce adequate wetness. Lubricants make intercourse less painful. Only use the water-based lube. You can opt for lubricant condoms too. 


No matter what you do, always practice safe sex. It’s easy to get caught up in the pleasure haze but protected sex can save your life.
