    That's a good question.

    Try to get information on it using Google. Show some effort before asking a question.

    Well, like she's on BC... and I know that leaves a slim chance, but there's still a chance, we want like.... a 0% chance.

    0% chance?...impossible. Sorry to say but there's always a risk of getting your girlfriend pregnant when having intercourse.

    Do you use a condom (even though she's on BC)?

    I thought they were talking about a pill the guy could take to make his sperm not able to get a girl pregnant. I have heard of ways to have sex and have a 0% chance of getting a girl pregnant but I can't think of them right now. And yeah, birth control can easily fail and has before. I might look up some ways here in a second.

    Ah yes, my bad. There ARE ways to make a girl not get pregnant at all (medically), but I don't think it's the way to go if you/she plans to have kids in the future.

    Yeah, those are all the ways of prevention I guess.

    the morning after pill is similar to birth control. i think it's a higher dosage? if she's on bc it's not going to work for her.

    "Emergency contraceptive pills (here called "ECPs"), are an oral drug containing high doses of hormones found in regular oral contraceptive pills, which, when taken after unprotected sexual intercourse, may prevent pregnancy from occurring."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morning-after_pill

    "Combined ECPs reduce the risk of pregnancy by 75 percent if started within 72 hours. For example, eight out of 100 women will become pregnant after having unprotected sex once during the second or third week of their cycles. But only two out of 100 will become pregnant after taking ECPs.

    Progestin-only ECPs reduce the risk of pregnancy by 89 percent if started within 72 hours. Only one woman out of 100 will become pregnant after taking progestin-only ECPs.

    Emergency IUD insertion reduces the risk of pregnancy by 99.9 percent. Only one out of 1,000 women will become pregnant after emergency IUD insertion."
