I had a vasectomy a few years ago, but I don't wear condoms with my partners. I take care of myself and prefer exclusive relationships. I've been with a young lady for about 3 months and we never use protection. Prior to me, she *always* (I doubt women always use them, but ok) used protection with her few partners. If I'm in a mutually exclusive relationship, do you think its ok that I continue without protection? Sometimes I think to myself, "I've been in a few exclusive relationships...without protection. I wonder when or if I'll ever put myself at risk? (or her for that matter)" You can't catch something if no one is infected to start with and you're loyal to each other, so, is there really a need to change my habit?
