Re: Ovulation day

Okay, so an app that isn't tracking those things can't accurately predict your cycle. However, if that's something you're interested in doing, we have a great resource for getting you started here: Get With the Flow: All About FAM .

Re: Ovulation day

It's tricky to say, because some of those apps don't collect the data they need to accurately predict your cycle. Does the app you use have you taking your temperature and tracking cervical mucus?

Re: Ovulation day

You're right that the type of discharge you saw is common during the ovulation portion of your cycle, so it's likely you were at that point. However, an ovum is not actually going to come out of your body during ovulation. If a pregnancy dosen't occur during your cycle, the egg just disintegrates.

Re: Ovulation day

You're welcome! So, your body will release an ovum (which is the official name of an egg in this case) at some point each month, which is what ovulation is. You may or may not experience a little bit of cramping during ovulation, called middleschmerz, which can sometimes clue you into to what's happ...

Re: Frustrating communication issues?

Hi titanddragons, This does sound like a frustrating situation. I'm going to set aside he question of how to cope with the sensory sensitivity, since that's not really something we can help with. Too, parts of it may not be things you can overcome. Bodies are sensitive things, and most of us will ha...

Re: Ovulation day

Hi Marla, No need to be nervous :) With your first question, masturbation isn't something that can influence your cycle so you couldn't use it to make ovulation occur faster. With your second question, it's possible that at the same time you were masturbating your ovaries released an ovum, but those...

Re: Penis Size

Hi Chez, Since you're just at the point of starting puberty, it's likely that your penis will grow more as you go through that process. How much more is something we simply can't know. Too, it may help to know that average penis size is much smaller than many people assume it is. You can read more a...

Re: Masturbate without porn

Hi Rajaman,

As we've talked about before, whether or not someone uses porn to masturbate is a matter of preference and what works for each individual person. So there's never going to be one, correct way to masturbate or create arousal.

Re: Vulva?

We can't say for certain exactly how long sperm will live inside the reproductive tract, only that it's possible for them to stay alive for several days, and possibly for up to a week.

Re: First time sex, boyfriend has a big dick, and im afraid to stretch myself

Hi Tojr,

That's going to depend a lot on what feels good to your body, so it's going to take some experimentation. Basically, what you want to do is try out different angles, speeds, movements, and things like that to figure out what feels good to you. Does that help?

Hi CuriousKitten, It's great that you're thinking ahead in terms of preparedness! With condoms and lube, you or a partner can simply buy those items at a drug store or grocery store and then stash them somewhere safe and private. With other forms of birth control, it depends a bit on what method you...

Hi Chez, Well, the first thing I should point out is that, given your age, you're not going to be able to legally access porn, since any place that sells it or posts it is going to restrict it to people 18 and older. That being said, there's nothing bad about being curious about porn. It's something...

Re: Vulva?

Hi Marla,

The Vulva basically refers to the exterior parts of the genitals (in other words, the stuff you can see). Labia are parts of the vulva, the ones that you describe as looking like flaps. So, yes, you can touch your vulva when doing things like wiping after urinating.
