Hi Anon

Yes, you should not have naked body-to-body contact with her unless you have a condom on, each and every time. Even if you don't have actual penetration, don't risk it.

Best,

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It's important to use protection such a condom and she might want to see her doctor. So he can start a birth control plan. Such as Birth Control Pills.  It's important to use both against any STD's and  unwanted pregnancies.  Emergency pills are not a method of birth control and can cause many side effects after it's used.

Here are some resources for you
