    It depends on what you want from them. There is no one answer that is best for everyone.

    Condoms protect against STIs and don't have any side-effects.

    Only one of you needs to remember to take the pill and it's more reliable as a contraceptive. But it doesn't protect against STIs and some women find they can't take it because of side-effects.

    Alternatives exist The implant is staggeringly reliable and you only need to remember to have it changed every couple of years, but not everyone wants it in their arm.

    What do you mean by 'came inside a few times'? That he's come inside without a condom or..?

    Pill or condoms?
    dear Sara personally i never had sex but i feel that both methods of contraception are helpful and super efficient and if your use condoms and a pill your are more likely to be highly be protected

    My doctor recommends using condoms even when your on the pill too reduce risk of an STI
    Personally I’m not keen on condoms as I feel like it’s a better experience without. However I’ve tried 4 different types of contraceptive and none of them agreed with me, so too prevent pregnancy I have to use condoms. Not quite ready in life for a baby yet.

    The withdrawal method isn’t an effective contraceptive in preventing pregnancy and it doesn’t prevent stds. Really you should be on both pill and condom until you’re ready for babies and have been cleared of stds
