7. “I forgot my birth control.”
As mentioned above, being sexually responsible encompasses a handful of duties. You can’t just rely on men to have condoms at all times (women can buy a box too and have them ready). If you’re on birth control like the pill, it’s important that you take it at the same time every day if you want to avoid disrupting your cycle or experiencing a pregnancy scare.
If you do get a guy back to your place and suddenly have a eureka moment and realize that you did indeed forget to take the pill today, you may want to abstain from sex entirely or make sure that you have a condom handy. If you do decide to have sex though, keep this birth control freak-out news to yourself. It’ll scare any man and he’ll take off running.
