So I had been sexually active for about 3 months and I really needed to go to the gyno but my mom kept putting off scheduling my appointment. (FYI: she has no idea I am sexually active, and I have tried to talk to her about sex as well as contemplatives but she kind of shut me down with "well your not going to be having sex so you don't have to worry about it"). So I took things into my own hands and scheduled an appointment myself. I was scarred to death, they asked me alot of questions on the phone regarding my sex life. I kind of lied to the secretary on the phone about being sexually active due to fear of my parents finding out. My appointment came with a restless night of sleep before (yes I was that nervous), but I made it. When I did get to the office I was completely honest about my sexual activity & I even discussed birth control, and requested to be put on pills. The doctor was really nice and she ended up giving me a 6 month supply of birth control. Being the shy person that I am, I think I did pretty well. Sorry for the post but I needed someone to "brag" to, just because I am kind of proud of myself (as stupid as that sounds).

Hey, it's always great to hear people being so proactive about their own sexual health. There's nothing stupid about doing that, or about bragging about it. It's pretty cool to be able to do that for yourself. And I say it's not really bragging so much as celebrating a new step in your life. So congratulations on this new step!
