NO! The only ways to avoid pregnancy are to either not have sexual intercourse or to use contraceptives - e.g. the 'pill' or condoms.

Foods do not help avoid pregnancy, it is as simple as that.

If you are going to have sex please educate yourself first.

The legal age for sex in RSA is 16 years old.
