Taisha, 21, withdrawal and not right now

I wasn’t using a condom and [he’d] pull out.

Taisha hasn’t dated men in a while, but when she did, she usually relied on the withdrawal method, or “pulling out,” to avoid pregnancy. Now that Taisha’s more interested in women, she doesn’t have to worry as much about pregnancy, but she still makes sure she’s covered against STIs by getting tested regularly.

Taisha recommends getting tested with your partner before any sexual contact, like she and her girlfriend did.
