There are so many women who think that getting pregnant is the worst thing that can happen when they have unprotected sex. Well we’re here to tell you that it’s not.
This mindset is probably rooted in warnings that Nigerian parents give their daughters. All they care about is that you don’t get pregnant before you get married. Their concern is understandable but there’s so much more that needs to be said.
Yes, getting pregnant when you don’t plan it can be a lot to handle especially if you’re young. However, it doesn’t usually leave you with major health problems or make you infertile.
On the other hand, there are some very real diseases you can get from unsafe sex that can do serious damage. Here are some of them:
HIV/AIDS is easy to manage these days, but that doesn’t mean it’s fun to have it. You can get HIV from unsafe sex and no matter how accessible the drugs are, it will still affect your lifestyle.
This disease starts as a painless sore on your private area. It’s especially dangerous because you don’t usually see a lot of symptoms. If it’s not treated, it can result in brain damage, heart problems and even death.
Chlamydia usually doesn’t show symptoms, but it’s the leading cause of infertility in women. It can also result in Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) if it’s not treated on time.
These are just three of the health issues you’re exposing yourself to when you have unsafe sex. Getting pregnant unexpectedly might be unpleasant, but it’s definitely not as unpleasant as these diseases.
So before you have unsafe sex again, remember how serious a risk you’re taking and make that man strap on a condom. Safe sex is the best sex.
