Going to the doctors today reminded me how much I appreciate all the work that you guys do here. My doctor reminded me that if I change partners, I'm going to need STI tests more frequent than the yearly pelvic exam, and I happily chirped "I know!". It feels so empowering to know that I know how to take care of my sexual health! Now that I'm 18, I'm starting to realize that I need to take charge of my health and my sexuality, and Scarleteen has helped me do so safely and with confidence!
It's so inspiring to see you all help teens like me, and even change lives with all the advice that you give here on the boards and on the main site. Thank you everyone, for everything that you do here!

Bun Bun, I was about to go to bed after a very long work day, and that was such a nice ending to my day. Thanks so much! And I'm so glad for you that you got to have that moment of empowerment.
