Hello. So I am on birth control pills and have never had vaginal sex. My boyfriend and I do other sexual stuff but we've never had sex. Although I am constantly paranoid that I am pregnant and think about it all the time. Anyone have advice on how to calm down about this?

Some of the tips in this piece might be helpful as a starting point: Self-Care a La Carte And, if even sexual activity that does not pose risks of pregnancy is contributing to your anxiety, then you can always take a break from any kind of sex full-stop until you're feeling a bit more comfortable.

However, if after all that you're finding that you're still constantly anxious even without having had a pregnancy risk, then your best bet really is to seek out mental healthcare for that anxiety.
