Not wanting to get pregnant

Sex is made pleasurable with the intention of encouraging pregnancy. Many people will have the desire to have sex at a time when they do not wish to conceive. They wish to control conception (contraception) to try and avoid pregnancy. For many the alternative (unwanted pregnancy, termination of pregnancy) is unacceptable. If you wish to use contraception you should seek the advice of your GP or a Family Planning Clinic. They will help you choose the one that is best for you and your partner.
