Before you want babies though, you should always use a condom during sex. Besides protecting against pregnancy, condoms are known to help block HIV, gonorrhea, herpes, chlamydia, and now, HPV. College women whose partners always used a condom had a 70% reduced incidence of new HPV infections. I can't help but wonder if the number isn't higher, and a few of the girls just forgot a few times? Either way, it's probably moot, now that we have the HPV vaccine, but just another good reason to wrap it up!
I wonder if this is true...my mom just forwarded me an email claiming that a white paper plate, containing a bit of Lemon Scent Joy-laced water, will act as an effective mosquito trap. Allegedly, it attracts the 'squiters, they drink the water, and die promptly. Anyone know if this works??
