This question might sound a bit strange but It has been on my mind for a while now. I just wanted to know just in case it ever happens, what would you do contraception wise if you were planning to have a one night stand? I am not on the pill and well, what happens if I get carried away and don't want to get pregnant, I suppose use a condom is the solution but condoms are not very reliable on their own. And Its not possible to go on the pill for a week and stop, see what I mean? Do you think it's necessarry going on the pill before university even though, I don't have a boyfriend?
Thanks for your advice.

Personally i would just go on the pill before uni. Then you will never have to worrie about sorting it out later instead of before.
But remember always use a comdom even if you're on the pill.

Condoms are something like 98% reliable, so I'd say that's more than 'not very'. Still, you are right to want more protection. As above, just go on the pill. Also, the best known contraceptive is to simply say no

Pill is pretty useful anyway... You can make sure you don't have periods during exams for a start. Read the little leaflet that comes with condoms, the better they're put on the more reliable they are.

Use a condom, run the risk. Its only 98% because 10% of the population dont know how to put one on properly. And the odd 1 in a 1000 chance of it being manufactured poorly.

although condoms are very reliable i would stil sugest you go on the pill, that way if you do have a one night stand and neither of you have a condom on you, you are stil prety safe.

Even when posted flippantly, the old man in me feels impelled to point out that wearing two condoms would actually increase the chance of unwanted pregnancy as they are not designed to be worn like that and would rub together and split.

And, yeah, wear a condom is the simple, one size fits all answer to this thread.

I worry about how people reach university age thinking condoms "aren't very reliable". They are. They're tested incredibly rigorously. Used as instructed, pregnancy won't result. It's pretty much as simple as that.

I'm not proud (but equally not ashamed) to say I've had a number of said encounters at uni.

I'm not a father, and I've not caught anything.

Blah.

No offence, but I hardly think anyone would honestly think "i know, i'll wear two condoms".

i'm surprised that no one has mentioned the morning after pill.. though again, doesn't safeguard you from STD's, which are nicely passed on during one night stands (especially if you have many of them) =)

Err maybe because the morning after pill is EMERGENCY contraception and not to be used as a form of regular contraception?

I don't think we can emphasise this enough... Wear a condom if it's a one night stand, even if he says he's clean!
