Use the pill or a condom?

We are still sometimes asked what birth control is best to use during sex. In this article, we explain that just using the pill is not enough to prevent STDs. For this you need to use a reliable condom, such as Wingman.

The birth control pill

The pill is the best-known form of birth control. However, it does not work for everyone. You may experience side effects or, due to a hectic schedule, frequently forget to take the pill. Furthermore, it is important to note that the pill does not protect against STDs. For this, a condom is the best option.

When it comes to birth control, there are numerous options available to help you avoid pregnancy. It is up to each individual to determine which form is best for them. Check your lifestyle; are you single or in a relationship? Do your periods bother you, or do you want to take in fewer hormones?
The general practitioner can help you make a decision and then write a prescription. Because, except for condoms, all forms of birth control are prescribed by your doctor.

Is a condom a suitable alternative to the pill?

The condom is your only birth control against STDs as well as pregnancy. So, a condom can be an excellent addition to the use of the pill or other birth control if you are not in a steady relationship, or one of you (still) has an STD.

A condom contains no hormones and thus has no effect on your menstrual cycle or fertility. To protect yourself, you should always use a condom when making love. The advantage is that condoms are available at drugstores, supermarkets, most gas stations, and online at reasonable prices. Even if you use a condom correctly, there is a 2% chance that something will go wrong.
Wingman is specially designed for an extra safe and better sex experience. There are convenient little wings around your Wingman that allow you to put the condom on easily, quickly and correctly, without touching it. And because you don't touch your condom, the transmission of STDs is lower than with traditional condoms.
