Nurses Talk - There are many couples in these world preffered to have sex anytime and anywhere and forgetting the sanctity of sex. Making sex as part of their daily leisures. And all these happened because of Contraceptives, believing that AIDS can be avoided or controlled if all people who are making love or making lust can have it safely with contraceptives. Condom is one of the well-known conctraceptives, is it safe? Let's find out!
Experts tend to avoid the term 'safe sex' to refer to sex using the condom, because they acknowledge that it does not give 100per cent protection against the various sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
'Safer sex' is now the preferred term.
A Cochrane Review on health care concluded that, with consistent use, condoms are about 80 per cent effective in reducing the risk of HIV infection.
The June 2004 Bulletin of the World Health Organisation noted that with consistent use of the condom, the risk of contracting gonorrhoea was reduced by about 62per cent, and that for chlamydia infection, by only about 26per cent.
Such limited extent of risk reduction is far from being acceptable.
The effectiveness of the condom can be further compromised by the fact that condom breakage and slippage are not uncommon.
A study published in the May 2006 issue of the British Medical Journal revealed that condom slippage was experienced by up to 33per cent of the teens who had used these; and condom breakage, by up to 25 per cent.
Studies have also shown that teenagers are relatively poor users of contraceptives.
There are many reasons why some teens engage in risky sexual behaviour. These include factors such as peer pressure, negative influence of some mass media, poor self-esteem, and poor parent-child relationships.
These should be considered in the design of any sexuality programme that is aimed at our young. It is our duty to provide them with the correct information, so that they can make the right decisions for themselves.-Dr John Hui Keem Peng
"For people who are sexually active, condoms remain our best solution to reducing risks of acquiring sexually transmitted infections (if uninfected) or transmitting these infections (if infected). Despite some inconsistencies in the evidence, studies show that condoms are an effective physical barrier against passage of even the smallest sexually transmitted pathogens," wrote Markus Steiner and Willard Cates of Family Health International.
A recent meta-analysis revealed that condoms really decrease the risk of gonorrhea and chlamydia in both men and women, but also of the genital herpes and human papillomavirus infection, if correctly employed.Many are concerned that the condom use boosts unsafe sexual behavior, but a recent review has not confirmed this."Like any prevention tool (such as seat belts or airbags) condoms are not 100% effective," wrote the authors.Still, people should know that the condom fulfills its mission integrated in the ABC strategy: abstinence, being faithful to one partner, and condom use.Still, "a more comprehensive approach is needed. Condoms cannot be the definitive answer to sexually transmitted infection, because they provide insufficient protection against many common diseases. Intercourse generally involves skin to skin contact in the external genital area not covered by a condom. The main problem with condoms is that average people, particularly teenagers and young adults, do not use them consistently, regardless of knowledge or education," said Stephen Genuis from the University of Alberta. "Numerous large studies where concerted efforts to promote use of condoms has consistently failed to control rates of sexually transmitted infection -- even in countries with advanced sex education programs like Canada, Sweden, and Switzerland."Recent researches proved that changes in sexual behavior (less partners and casual sex, and less appeal to sex workers), rather than condom use, dropped the rate of STDs in countries like Thailand and Cambodia. About 70 % of the STDs around the world occur in teenagers and young adults. "Yet innumerable adolescents saturated with condom focused sex education end up contracting sexually transmitted infections. Although factual information should be included in any discussion of sexually transmitted infections, narrow condom focused initiatives should be replaced with comprehensive evidence-based programs," said Genuis.
So there you have it, best information to answer your question about the condoms. I suggest that you keep you virginity and have your sex when you have your honeymoon. Its very wonderful to have sex to a person you really love and truly respected.

Nurse Talk - Not all women in the world are as fertile as to our mothers, well but there are many basic procedures for women to become fertile and possibly can have a healthy baby. There are many married people who engaged many problems in their lives, but they keep hiding the main reason of their troubles and that is by not having a complete family. I hope this article would help some couples who are striving hard to have a complete family.

If your clock is ticking and you're wondering the best way to get your fertility jump-started, read on.
Seasonal Timing is Everything
According to Chinese medicine, seasons really do affect fertility. Chinese medicine looks to the energetic cycles of the universe for health answers; the female and male energies - also known as yin and yang - rise and fall throughout the year.
Male energy begins in the spring and peaks around June 21, the summer solstice. Female energy begins in autumn and peaks around December 21, the winter solstice. This means that the most fertile seasons for males are spring and summer; for women, autumn and winter.
Studies performed in China have confirmed that sperm production is generally more abundant and mobile during spring and summer. Conversely, the ovaries are more active and produce more follicles during fall and winter.
One possible explanation is that because men are more physically active during the spring and summer months, growth hormone and testicular functions correspondingly increase. As for women: because ovulation occurs ideally at a lowered body temperature, it makes sense that the cooler autumn and winter months equal increased fertility.
Something to know: too high of a temperature is not conducive to fertility. It has been found that when environmental temperature is overly hot - and the body is above the ideal temperature of 98.6 - there seems to be a drop in the testicular function for men and a delayed maturation of follicles in women.
Live Food Gives New Life
Mother nature has given us foods that naturally enhance fertility. The medical tradition of China - renowned as the country with the most populous people in the world - has long considered certain foods to be of particular value in increasing success with fertility.
These foods that contain the potential for new life include eggs, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, and berries. Since these foods are themselves capable of propagation when hatched or sprouted, they are said to be abundant in life-giving energy.
It is no wonder that modern science has confirmed them as a category unto themselves; they are complete foods providing essential amino acids and helping to form the building block of protein. They are also high in the essential fatty acids (EFAs) critical for hormonal health and chock full of the antioxidants that prevent a premature decline in function and aging.
Fertility Enhancement
Here are a few ways a woman can help prepare herself for pregnancy:
1. Some evidence indicates that a woman's menstrual cycle and ovulation is affected by her amount of exposure to light. Less exposure to light corresponds to increased depression and a decrease in fertility.
As part of her fertility enhancing strategy, a woman may want increase her exposure to natural or full spectrum light during the day.
2. However, at night, any light should be completely blocked for adequate sleep; that means at least eight hours of sleep, and going to bed no later than 11 p.m.
3. Another measure a woman can take is to keep her body temperature slightly lower to create a more conducive environment for ovulation and maturation of follicles.
4. Moderate, low impact exercise can be of help - definitely avoid intense, high-impact physical workouts, which can actually inhibit fertility.
5. It is essential to keep stress low. Stress busters include meditation and tai chi.
I hope you can use this information to successfully prepare for pregnancy! I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me.

A wonderful topic for parents having teens in their families.  Well, lets start over with a question, thus sex education important in the family? And should parents act as educators in educating their teens about sex rather than the school?
Sex education is one of the hot issues in many countries, especially in some Religious countries, and if you try do some research these countries succeed in controlling the possible increase of HIV victims.  How? Abstinence and the teaching the moral way about sex to their people.
Parents are the first teachers the children experienced in their lives and guessed what parents influence a lot in the growth of a child. So when a parent starts educating their children about whats the best in life whether good or bad, for the children its always the best path to follow.  And thats is why, if the parents are start talking about sex topics to their children it surely produce learning to their teens.
Why Parents should Educate about Sex to their children when our is school conducting sex education to your kids?
Well, the answer is, Sex Education in many schools now a days are influenced or should I say sponsored by different health agencies and International health organizations. Majority of these Health organizations are not considering the importance of morality but instead desperately making solutions on how to solve the country's population.  Their way of educating your children is more on scientific-based teaching.  They would show pictures of penises and vaginas, the feelings, conditions, impacts etc..   These for sure would contribute curiosity to the children.  Then telling them about condoms, pills, and everything.  Making it short... Its like "Go have sex, its natural! Don't worry use Condom and your safe!"

Parents alone have the right to be the primary educators of their children, 
particularly in matters related to sexuality. This right is bestowed on them 
by God, Who also assigns to parents a duty to teach Christian morality to 
their sons and daughters. Parents are the best teachers of their children. 
God has ordained parents with an inalienable right to educate their 
children, particularly regarding sexual development. 
God, the Author of life, invites parents to join in the creative process of 
generating new human life. The role of parents continues as guardians and 
caretakers of the gift of a child which has been bestowed on them. 
The God-given right and responsibility of parents to control the education 
of their children is revealed in Holy Scripture: 
He [the Lord] set it up as a decree in Jacob, and established it as a law in 
Israel, / That what He commanded our fathers they should make known to 
their sons . . .     Psalm 78:5 
Train a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart 
from it.             Proverbs 22 
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the 
discipline of the Lord.   Ephesians 6:4 
. . . and in the Tradition of the Catholic Church: 
The right and duty of parents to educate their children is primary and 
You don't have to be a Religious person to educate your children about sex, just tell them simple questions like: "Are you ready to get Pregnant?", Are you willing to give-up your virginity at that age?, "Does your Boyfriend responsible enough to take care of you, if you get pregnant?"
These questions are very easy to say to your children.  You don't have to tell them about how things are happening in the body.  The point their giving an Idea on how to do abstinence while their still young and still in school.  Teens are full of imaginations and curiosity to experience.  Don't let your children a victim of it.  Tell them the consequences of Sex and they will understand.  Rather than letting learn it from themselves.  Most boys are eager to experience Sex your daughter could be a victim if you would not teach them about sex.
Parents are in the best position to know the developmental level and 
individual informational needs of their children. Moreover, only in private 
discussions can these needs be addressed-personally and with the delicacy 
the subject requires. It is particularly important not to violate a child's 
natural latency period (roughly from age eight to puberty, when sexual 
interests are dormant), which could result in the destruction of their 
Further, parents, regardless of their professional credentials, are best 
suited to be the primary educators of their children. Their loving 
relationship with their offspring is singular and irreplaceable and 
therefore cannot be delegated to others or usurped by others.7 
In addition, parents are in a unique position to lead by example in teaching 
their children the gift of self in relation to love. The love between a 
husband and wife teaches their children what love is; for, by welcoming and 
nurturing the children who are the fruit of that love, they give their 
children the best possible education in sexuality and in responsible use of 
their sexuality.
