Q: Ma’am, please I really need your help. Is there any drug you could prescribe for me that can wash away sperm from my body? I don’t want to get pregnant. Please Ma’am
A: Hmmm, I’m not sure where to start from. From your panic, it appears you had unprotected sex at a time you were not ready and committed to pregnancy. You need to remember that beyond pregnancy, you could be opening up yourself to sexually transmitted infections. Unfortunately, there is no drug that washes away sperm after they have been deposited. Emergency contraception taken up to 5 days after sexual intercourse may also help prevent pregnancy. Emergency contraceptives have their place but they are not meant to take the place of regular contraceptives as they are less effective than the regular ones. Regular use of these emergency contraceptives may cause your periods to become irregular and unpredictable. I’m sure you don’t want to have this problem
There is a simple ABC that guides these affairs. The first is abstinence. Honestly, this is your safest bet. If you’re not ready to deal with the responsibilities of having a baby, please leave well alone. You can’t have an STI, HIV/AIDS, or otherwise if you don’t have sex. And of course, you can’t get pregnant.
Now, if abstinence is a problem, be faithful to one partner…who hopefully is being faithful to you too. If you can’t swear on this, revert to plan A.
Finally, if all else fails, ensure that you use a condom to prevent STIs and pregnancy. Other contraceptives can also help. There is no contraceptive that is 100% fool proof. They all have their pros and cons and really the best method for each person depends on personal preferences, cost, ease of using it, intended duration of use etc
I suggest that you walk into a family planning clinic where a nurse will take you through all the different methods.
Have a great night, y’all
