Safe period is that mythical period in your cycle where you can have sex with men and not get pregnant. It involves a lot of mathematics and the gag is that you can still get pregnant during your safe period, so here’s a list of things to do to avoid getting pregnant.

No, we are not teaching you methods of protection, what are showing you is how to avoid thinking about sex so you can pursue pregnancy far away. Of course, this is only for people looking to not get pregnant. 

1. Read your Bible

To avoid sinning, just read your Bible. Focus on verses that talk about fighting temptation like James 1:12 so that God can guide your path. You will not regret it. 

2. Go out with friends

When was the last time you had lunch with your friends? Even if it was just last week, spend more time with them. At least, when you are with them, you won’t fall pregnant. Of course, this is if you don’t sleep with your friends sha. 

3. Over eat 

By the time you stuff yourself with food like fufu and one banging soup, fornication would be the last thing on your mind. 

4. Call your mum 

I don’t know about you but after talking to my mother, every thought about having sex dies. Try it. 

5. Offer to babysit someone’s toddler.

The best thing about babies for me is that I can give them back to their owners. Maybe if you babysit a toddler that cries for no reason, you will rethink your plans.

6. Watch an action movie 

Action is different from action oh. Don’t go and watch the one with sexual action or you’ll have yourself to blame. 

7. Think of Nigeria 

Works like magic. Every other thought would vanish the minute you start thinking about Nigeria. Sex where? Sex what?  

8. Pick beans 

Isn’t the aim to keep body and soul active? Pick beans. By the time you’ve picked one derica of beans, the thought of sex would have left your mind. 

9. Sleep

Just sleep, my dear. By the time you wake up, you will be better equipped to fight your battles. 

10. Avoid your boyfriend 

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
