How do I talk to my partner(s) about birth control and safe sex?

Understanding you and your partner(s) goals will help determine what birth control method(s) are appropriate for you and your life. Ideally, before you have sex, you and your partner(s) should (1) independently consider your own life goals and feelings about birth control and safe sex. (2) Discuss your goals and feelings together. (3) Visit a healthcare provider to choose methods to protect you and your partner(s). Save this question to your favorites if you'd like to talk about it more with your healthcare provider.
