FALSE.

Pregnancy is possible even if it is the first time a girl has had sex. The truth is, if a boy and a girl have sex and don’t use contraception, she can get pregnant, whether it’s her first time or she has had sex lots of times.


FALSE.

There's a myth that a girl can’t get pregnant if a boy withdraws his penis before he ejaculates. The truth is, pulling out the penis won’t stop a girl from getting pregnant.


FALSE.

The truth is, she can get pregnant at any time of the month if she has sex without contraception.


FALSE.

A female can become pregnant in any position that she has sex. It is a myth that a girl can’t get pregnant if she has sex standing up, sitting down, or if she jumps up and down afterwards. The truth is, there’s no such thing as a "safe" position if you’re having sex without a condom or another form of contraception.


FALSE.

You can't get an STI from the toilet seat


FALSE.

No, alcohol does not make you better in bed. The truth is, when you’re drunk it’s hard to make smart decisions. Alcohol can make you take risks, such as having sex before you’re ready, or having sex with someone you don't like. Drinking won't make the experience better. You’re more likely to regret having sex if you do it when you’re drunk.


FALSE.

Condoms should only be used once. Don't believe anyone who says that you can wash condoms and use them again. If you've used a condom, throw it away and use a new one if you have sex again.


FALSE.

No, you might not know if you have an STI.  Some STI’s have no symptoms at all.


FALSE.

The size of a man's feet does not reflect the size of his penis.


FALSE.

Shaving your pubic hair will not prevent you catching pubic lice (crabs), and won't get rid of them. Pubic lice are spread by sexual contact, and possibly by sharing bedding, towels and clothing with an infected person. You can treat yourself with an insecticidal lotion from your pharmacist or GP.


FALSE.

Condoms come in a range of sizes. If the condoms you've used were too small or big, look out for different sizes or ask your pharmacist or a doctor or nurse at a sexual health clinic for more information. If you're not sure about the size, try one on alone before you have sex to see how it feels.


FALSE.

Using two condoms at the same time is not safe. It increases friction and can cause one or both of the condoms to tear or break. Condoms are effective only if used correctly so check the instructions that come with the packet. They are the only contraceptive method that protect against sexually transmitted infections as well as pregnancy.


FALSE.

You can get an STI by using sex toys or other objects, but only if someone with an STI has used them before you. Use a new condom on sex toys or other objects for each person that uses them, to prevent catching or passing on STIs.


TRUE.

Chlamydia can make you infertile if left untreated, if you're a woman. In men, chlamydia may lead to a painful infection in the testicles and can sometimes reduce fertility. Most people with chlamydia have no symptoms but it's easily treated, so if you're worried ask your GP or sexual health clinic for a test


FALSE.

Some people are allergic to latex - the type of rubber that some condoms are made of. This means they can't use latex condoms, however there are latex free condoms available at selected retailers and online.


FALSE.

Oral contraceptives prevent pregnancy only. They do not effect the transmission of STI’s when having sex. Safer sex means using a condom and contraception to prevent pregnancy and infection.
