|Effects of Birth Control
Feb 14, 2002
Since oral contraceptives produce a thicker cervical mucous making it harder for semen to penetrate and gain access to the uterus, would this make it harder for the bacteria in a sense to access the mucous membrane and enter the blood stream?

There is no evidence that oral contraceptives prevent sexually transmitted infections. Use condoms to prevent STIs, especially if you are unsure about your partner's status.
