This is a soft, round piece of foam inserted into the vagina
up to six hours before sexual intercourse that is impregnated with spermicide. Works by sitting in front of the
cervix and effectively barring sperm from penetrating to the uterus, as well as killing sperm and absorbing it like

It is best to go see your doctor before choosing any form of

just as effective, if not more so than the over the counter methods, which are approved by the FDA because they can
only be gotten from a doctor. These by-prescription-only methods also include surgical methods of birth control,
and are longer-term living with herpes choices.
Oral Birth Control
Also known as The
Pill or Oral Contraceptives, oral birth control is a pill that a woman takes once a day,
every day, to prevent the ovaries from releasing eggs. These are usually distributed in packs of 28 pills, seven of
which are placebos to simply keep the woman on track of when she is supposed to take them. Being on the pill has
several benefits for women including shorter, lighter, and less painful periods. It can also help regulate your
living with herpes periods and even help you have better skin. Being on the pill also has several risks including
risk of blood clots, mood swings, headaches, and breast tenderness. Anyone living with herpes and thinking
of taking the pill should speak with their doctor first regarding living with
Diaphragm or Cervical Cap
These two are similar devices that are placed inside the
vagina over the entrance to the cervix, usually with spermicide. The living with herpes diaphragm is shaped like a
dome while the cervical cap is a thimble sized latex cap. You have to go to your doctor to be fitted with a
diaphragm because there are different sizes. He or she will tell you how to use it properly, and how to clean it.
There are three types of diaphragms:
Coil Spring Diaphragm - This type is for
women with strong vaginal tone and is free of genital abnormalities.
Flat Spring Diaphragm - These are for women with a shallow
pubic arch or moderate descent of the bladder or rectum.
Arching Spring Diaphragm - This other type is intended for
women with weak vaginal tone, moderate descent of the pelvic organs, or with the uterus bent far forwards or
After living with herpes sex, the diaphragm or cervical cap
must remain in the vagina for six to eight hours. The diaphragm or cervical cap is ineffective at
preventing STDs. Both should not be used during your living with herpes period.
IUD (Intrauterine Device)
The IUD is a T shaped implant with a small string at the long
end of the T that is put inside the uterine cavity. There are two types of living with herpes
Copper IUD - Remains in place for up to ten
years at a time.
Progesterone-releasing IUD - These have a
reservoir of progesterone that lasts for about a year, and has to be replaced annually. It works by hampering the
sperm's travel through the uterine cavity and thickening the cervical mucous.
The IUD can help women with painful periods feel better and
have less bleeding. This does not protect against STDs. The IUD can only be implanted by a doctor, and anyone
considering it should speak with their doctor before making this decision.
This living with herpes birth control system involves small,
thin tubes filled with synthetic Progestin that are implanted under the skin in the upper arms. This works just
like the pill, and can last up to five years, depending on how many tubes are implanted. Two tubes are the minimum
and give women two years of protection. Six tubes are the maximum and give women five years of protection. After
the tubes are worn, they are removed, and a new set can be surgically placed. The implants do not protect against
living with herpes STDs.
Depo-Provera (aka The Shot)
The shot is an injection of progesterone that does the same
thing that the pill does, stopping ovulation. Anyone living with herpes and using the shot needs to have one every
three months, or four times a year. The shot can stop the period instead of just lessening it. The shot does not
protect against living with herpes STDs or AIDS symptoms. The shot also works instantly, so the day you get the shot, you're protected. The Depo-Provera
shot is the most popular brand of the shot. The living with herpes shot also has the same risks as the birth

Vasectomy is the term for male sterilization. For this
outpatient surgery, small incisions are made in either side of the scrotum and sections of the tubes that carry a
man's sperm are removed and tied off. The sperm can no longer move from the testes to the penis and therefore there
is no possibility of pregnancy, because when the man ejaculates, there is no sperm. This does not protect against
STDs. This procedure is irreversible, so most men have sperm frozen in a sperm bank if they want children later.
The surgery does not affect performance or libido for herpes dating. Female Sterilization
Female sterilization or "having your tubes tied" is a surgical
procedure where a woman's fallopian tubes (tubes that lead from the ovaries to the uterus) are implanted with small
blockers that cause scar tissue to grow and effectively stop eggs from dropping into the uterus. This is a surgical
procedure, so it has to be done in a hospital. This does not protect against STDs
or AIDS/HIV. This procedure
cannot be reversed. Female sterilization carries the risk of ectopic pregnancy with it though that is very
rare. A woman's periods don't stop, and she does not go into menopause any sooner than her body normally
A highly controversial form of birth control,
the morning after pill is a prescription drug taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex, or when other methods of
contraception have failed. The pill releases a high level of hormones into the body, making it very hard for the
egg to survive, as well as sloughing off the layer in which the egg would attach to for pregnancy. The morning
after pill is only 75% effective, and can harm the forming fetus, which may result in needing therapeutic abortion.
This method also causes severe discomfort for the woman, including up to 48 hours of severe flu-like symptoms.
There is much controversy around the morning-after pill, including the right to life debate. The pill does not
protect you against any STD,
including herpes, AIDS, or HPV.
If you are living with
herpes or haveAIDS symptoms, always talk to you herpes dating safe sex
partner about contraception and sexually
transmitted diseases, so that at least one of
you is covered, and never assume that the other person is going to take care of it. Thinking about contraception
during foreplay might kill the free
dating mood a little, but not as much as a
screaming baby or years of painful herpies, and possibly
death from HIV, AIDS
symptoms, and any
other STD. Try some
