If you're a woman who has heterosexual sex and wants to prevent that heterosexual sex from climaxing into a fully-formed human in your uterus, I sincerely hope you've thought about birth control.

Everyone's body reacts differently, especially when it comes to hormones, so it's never a bad idea to get informed.
