Making contraceptive choices (human sexuality)

Making Contraceptive Choices Use information from Chapter 10 to help you determine each couple′s best two choices for contraception. 1. Veronica and Perry have been dating for two years. They are both college students working part-time. They have decided to add sexual intimacy to their monogamous relationship, but do not want to have children at this time. Veronica has a good memory but smokes daily. Perry is allergic to latex but is very comfortable with lots of foreplay. Both like to plan ahead, and neither has had much sexual experience. 2. Caine and Jessica are extremely busy people, both working full-time, taking several college classes, and helping out with their own families. They are getting married next month, and do not plan to have sex until after the wedding. They want their wedding night to be special, but definitely do not want a baby nine months later. Jessica doesn′t know that Caine has had two other short-term relationships in which he engaged in sexual intercourse. Jessica′s mother died of ovarian cancer, which is why she has to help her father with some younger siblings whenever possible. Jessica doesn′t like to touch her own genitals but would let Caine help her with getting more comfortable with this. Caine smokes, but Jessica is pretty health-conscious. 3. Joe and Suzanne just met three months ago in a local nightclub. They both like to party and have had multiple partners. Suzanne even has a 3-year-old daughter from a previous relationship but doesn’t want more children right now. Joe doesn′t like condoms, and Suzanne hates to plan ahead for sex—both like it to be spontaneous and unencumbered. Both are in good health, and although Joe′s memory is excellent, Suzanne is sometimes forgetful. 4. Summarize your experience in trying to choose good contraception options for these couples.
