An unwanted pregnancy is everyone's worst nightmare. You don't want it, she doesn't want it, and your mom probably wouldn't be too thrilled about it either. These days, there are plenty of ways to avoid getting pregnant, but for some reason it still occurs. Whether it's bad sex education or plain stupidity, you can rest assured that every day, somebody somewhere hears those dreaded words.
It's one thing if you've been with a girl for some time, you're settled, and a baby wouldn't be the worst thing to happen – but unplanned isn't the same as unwanted, and nobody wants to have a one-night stand only to be hit with life-changing news a few weeks later.
While it's worse for the girl than it is for you, it's still something you're definitely going to want to avoid, if possible. Thankfully, some of the common mistakes people make are really easy to avoid if you're aware of them. Here are some of these mistakes to help you carry on with your baby-free existence. No sweat.

2 Using Condoms Incorrectly
Shitty second-rate sex ed classes, we're looking at you. Whether it's because you were never taught or you never paid attention, the amount of adults who don't know how to correctly put on a condom is frankly appalling. If you're one of them, there's no excuse. Google Incognito is not just for keeping things "private" at night. Swallow your pride, get yourself onto YouTube and watch a demonstration – because putting it on wrong might mean you may as well not be wearing one at all. Oh, and for the record? Wearing condoms that are too big can cause problems too, so don't be tempted to buy the XXLs just to look impressive.
1 Contraception Rumors
For some reason in 2016, crazy contraception rumors still spread like wildfire, so let's go through a few of them. Having her douche, sit up, bathe or do a handstand after sex will not prevent her from getting pregnant. Taking a warm bath to 'discourage the sperm' will not prevent her getting pregnant. Neither will pulling out early, especially if you forget to do that – which is unsurprisingly pretty common. Improvising a condom from household materials is stupid, and will hurt you – especially the empty chip packet. Whose bright idea was that?
Nobody loves condoms, but the truth is simple. If you want to have sex without getting her pregnant, neither of you are sterilized and you haven't looked into any alternate methods? Condoms are it. Stock up, and get used to it. Better that than diapers…
