Scott, 29, the patch

I look and make sure it’s there… just to avoid any issues.

Scott and his girlfriend started with condoms until they both got tested for STIs. After that, she started with birth control pills, but moved on to the patch. He thinks it’s more convenient than having to take a pill every day.

At first he was concerned about whether it would stick on her skin long enough to work, but they’ve had no problems with it. And Scott admits that he might not stay on top of the patch if it was he who had to wear it, but he sure appreciates that his girlfriend is responsible enough to stick with it.
