In addition to std/hiv testing when I'm sleeping with these boys, as much as my birth control is super strong, I know I'll definitely need to take pregnancy tests too. Now, I know that sometimes the test you get from drug stores and supermarkets are not always 100%. Sometimes, it can come out + and all this worrisome, then they find out they were never pregnant. I know some people like that.

First question, are all the physical symptoms of pregnancy? Don't use the missing period as an example because the makes me hardly ever get my period anyway so I wanna know all the others incase there's ones I don't know about.

Second question, are there any exams that have a higher chance of correction than a pregnancy test?

HI Angelica Maria,

From your post, it looks like you are looking for information about pregnancy to avoid pregnancy, not because you feel you've recently had a pregnancy risk. Am I reading that correctly?

These three pages have a lot of great information.

A Refresher Course In Human Reproduction

Who's Afraid of Sperm?

Can I Get Pregnant or Pass an STI From That?

I think it may be healthier and more productive to approach it from an angle of how do I have safe sex and assess my risks. What do you think?

You can also check out all of the articles tagged with "Safer Sex".

Let me know what you think after you give these pages a look.
