I am sorry that you have such a dumb boyfriend D: Try explaining it to him with pictures maybe? Let him see for himself that there are two openings?
Whether the pill or the condom is more effective depends on many factors, including how they're used. For example, are you taking the pills at the correct times? Are you wearing the condom properly? Sometimes when having sex a few times in the same night I realize I / her touched the condom with hands that had potentially had semen on them from earlier. And like the third time in my life that I had sex I was putting the condom on in the dark, and I couldn't see which side was the right way and tried to put it on the wrong way at first. I flipped it over and the next day realized I had pressed the outside of the condom of the head of my dick (and I had just finished having sex for the second time in my life just a half hour before that). I find it hard to believe that condoms are only 95% effective when used properly. I guess it depends on how you define effective. 95% effective to me sounds like they result in 0.05% as many pregnancies as no birth control. But if "effective" means preventing even a single sperm cell from getting through, then 95% makes sense.
Advantages of condoms: - Applied correctly, they can be as high as 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. - They are the only effective protection (other than abstinence) against STDs and STIs. - They let men take personal responsibility for their own sexual health and parental status. - Unlike the pill, condoms are dirt cheap and often available for free. - Unlike the pill, condoms mostly don't contaminate the Earth's fresh water supply with synthetic estrogens. (This is way more serious than it sounds.) - Condoms come in a variety of colours and textures. Condom > pill.
If he doesn't want you to become pregnant, some sort of contraception should have been used.
Hey there's these new revolutionary things that slip over a guys' penis to help prevent these things. They're called condoms you should give them a try!
^ Well, they aren't all that revolutionary. :) Man has found out many centuries ago that using sheep intestine to capture his semen worked rather well to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Of course, the English also perfected this practice around 1850 by taking the intestine out of the sheep first. ;) The more you know, eh? ;D *Tease!*
You need to take control or you are going to end up pregnant and/or infected. Starting with a morning-after pill if it's not too late. Just because he didn't pay attention in class (who the hell doesn't pay attention in those classes?) doesn't stop you getting in the family way.
Kind of curious as to why condoms weren't used/ you're not on birth control? If he doesn't want you pregnant then he shouldn't be careless.
