Definitely not! Ice is not a form of birth control — no matter where you put it or for how long it is used.

Women who have vaginal intercourse need to make choices about birth control in advance. If they have unprotected intercourse, they may want to use emergency contraception, which can reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy if started within 120 hours of unprotected intercourse. To find out more about emergency contraception, call SA Sexual HEalth Association on 0860 100 262
