i have sex 1-3 times a day and my friend was telling me that i can get cervical cancer. i was wondering if that was true, and if there are any other side effects that are harmful to my body, and health.

Well, are you having protected sex when you do? Getting annual STI screenings and exams? Is your partner? If not, then yes, you're at risk for a whole host of ills, and as a result of young women's cervical cells not being fully matured and HPV risks, cervical cancer is a risk.

Is all the sex you're having sex you WANT to be having? If it is, are you also having time enough given all that to accomplish everything else you want to in a day and in your life? Based on your profile, you're 16: you likely don't have your own place, so at the risk of sounding silly, how are you even finding the time, especially for sex which is mutually beneficial?

Yes, Miz Scarlet, I am having protected sex and i want to be having it, and its not taking up too much of my time. all i asked for was an answer to my question, not judgement. so, based on the info ive given you, protected sex and all, is the amount of sex i am having healthy?

If it's sex that you want to be having (and are enjoying), if it's protected, and if you have the time to make it enjoyable for both partners, then yes it is healthy.

Please watch your tone - Miz S was not judging you, it's simply part of what we do here to make sure that people are leading healthy sex lives, emotionally and mentally, not just physically. In future, if you have a problem with a response you've been given, take it to email: boards@scarleteen.com.
