Contrôle des naissances

Savais-tu que la pilule contraceptive d’urgence, ou « pilule du lendemain », est disponible sans ordonnance?

La pilule contraceptive d’urgence, souvent désignée par le nom commercial Plan B®, est un médicament que tu peux prendre en vue de prévenir une grossesse. Cette pilule disponible sans ordonnance doit être prise dans les plus brefs délais si tu crains de tomber enceinte pour diverses raisons (relation non protégée, rupture du condom, mauvaise utilisation du contraceptif, y compris le fait d’avoir oublié de prendre ta pilule certains jours, etc.).

Tu veux en savoir plus long sur la contraception ou subir un test de dépistage des ITS ou un test de grossesse?

Si tu as des questions ou des préoccupations au sujet de ta santé ou si tu veux simplement parler en toute confidentialité avec quelqu’un à propos de la contraception, des infections transmissibles sexuellement ou d’une grossesse, sache que tu peux obtenir de l’aide ou des conseils au bout du fil.

Condoms always come in square packages, right?

Not necessarily!  Condoms are now being marketed in new, fun ways. "One" condom company is a company that is marketing "next generation" condoms and giving you an opportunity to share your design ideas. "One" condoms have been spotted in some stores around the NWT - check them out!

I've heard condoms don't really protect against pregnancy and STIs. So why bother using them?


Condoms do help prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Each year, 85 out of 100 couples who have sex but don't use any form of birth control get pregnant. That number drops to only 15 out of 100 when condoms are used. And no other method of birth control is as successful at protecting people against STIs as condoms.

Don’t be embarrassed. If you’re having sex you need to talk about condoms.

It's much smarter to talk about condoms before having sex, but that doesn't make it easy. Some people — even those who are already having sex — are embarrassed by the topic of condoms. But not talking about condoms affects a person's safety. Using condoms properly every time is the best protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs — even if you're using another form of birth control like the Pill.
