I’d like to have sex with my boyfriend. The only problem is that in a month, we’re both moving and we’re going to have to break up. What’s the best birth control for this situation? I’m afraid that going on the pill for only a month would mess up my hormones, but I don’t trust using condoms by themselves. Thank you very much for your answer.
