I used to think that using vaginal douches to clean the vagina can prevent pregnancy, but after readings, I have found out that this is false, as the sperm would have already swam up to the egg. I used to think that when a man wears a tighter condom, the sperms have a lower chance of coming out of the condom. But, after readings, I have found out that this is not the case and this might cause the condom to rupture during sexual intercourse. I used to think that when a man uses the withdrawal method, it prevents the woman from getting pregnant. But after readings, I have found out that this is not a useful method male becomes aroused, he ejects pre-ejaculate fluid which contain sperm that can enter the vagina and fertilise the egg. The man might also not pull out in time asit can be hard to keep control during sex.

I used to think that people can use a plastic wrap or a balloon as a replacement condom but after further readins, I found out that they are nt effective due to their unfitting size and shape, this will cause them to rupture easily during sexual intercourse. Condoms are made to provide a good fit and good protection during sexual intercourse. They are regularly testest to provide maximum effectiveness.
I used to think that withdrawal is an effective contraception method but I have found out that sperm can still come out in a man's pre-ejaculate fluid and fertilise the egg. I used to think that a woman would not get pregnant if she is having sex for the first time but I now know that a woman can get pregnant as long as an egg is present.
@Rayner LOL balloon as condom
I used to think that when a woman is breastfeeding, she cannot get pregnant. But i have found out that while breastfeeding tends to postpone ovulation, this is not a guarantee. Ovulation can occur even when a woman is breastfeeding. The nursing mother should use birth control if she wishes to avoid pregnancy.I used to think that when a woman does not have an orgasm, she cannot get pregnant. But pregnancy occurs when a sperm from the man fertilizes an egg from the woman. While the man must ejaculate to release sperm, it is not necessary for the woman to have an orgasm to get pregnant. A woman of childbearing age usually releases an egg each month as part of her regular menstrual cycle. This occurs whether or not the woman has sex or an orgasm.
