Hi I have just become sexually active and I just wanted to know that if I have become in any kind of sexual activity, is it possible for my breasts to become a lot more enlarged?

It is possible that during arousal, your breasts may swell a bit due to increased blood flow. However, this should not be a permanent effect, and will go away when you're no longer aroused. Also, it generally will be a rather small increase in size.

Otherwise, sexual activity will not change your breasts at all.

Thank you [Smile] My mom somewhat noticed that my breasts were a little more bigger than usual and I was curious.

If my boyfriend played with them, or I sleep on my stomach where my breasts could be smashed or something, could that also increase the size of it?

Nope, this wouldn't increase the size of your breasts.

However, it's possible for your breasts to have changed in size due to other things such as general growth and development, gaining weight, hormonal changes, etc.

It's possible taht your breasts are just getting bigger because you're growing, you've gained weight, or your body is still changing due to puberty. That's a lot more likely.

One more question.

I don't know what part it is, but it's "down there". I guess it's the opening skin to the vagina? I don't know what it's called, but is it normal for it to become looser?

I'm not really sure what body part you're referring to; do you mean your hymen? Your hymen can become stretched due to sexual activity, but it's really nothing that would make a big difference in appearance.

Why don't you check out this article: Pink Parts - Female Sexual Anatomy

Lots and lots of constant tugging -- say, with someone who has labial piercings -- can do that, and eventually, with later age, there can be some minor changes. But if you're seeing changes at your age, the changes you've seen are most likely just due to finishing puberty.

The vulva will look different from the start to the end, and particularly because the mons pulls back a bit, the labia can look larger. But too, the labia also will enlarge with puberty.

Sounds like, however, you may just have become more observant about your body, full-stop, of late.

I'm already 18. So that means I finished puberty?

Not always- the age that puberty happens at can vary from person to person, so you may still be seeing some changes at 18.

I had a question that I was curious about. I know someone who has gotten pregnant but is still a virgin. I'm assuming that she got pregnant from fingering. How is it possible to become pregnant without actually having sex?

By virgin, do you mean she claims she's never had penis-in-vagina sex? I suppose there's a small chance that direct genital to genital contact without penetration caused pregnancy, but generally, in cases like this, I'm inclined to believe that she's just afraid to admit to having intercourse, and is fibbing. Pregnancy from fingering is also quite unlikely, unless the finger is actually dripping with sperm.

Yes never have had penis-in-vagina sex. Her boyfriend must have had dripping semen on his hands because she told me he used a different type of lubrication but didn't know what. Thank you [Smile]

can a woman get pregnant if the guy doesn't ejaculate? let's say if the guy inserts the penis for only a few seconds?

Pre-ejaculate can also contain sperm. More importantly, unprotected sex, no matter how long it takes, can put you at risk for STIs.

Have you had unprotected genital contact? Then you need to get tested for STIs and, depending when this took place, you may also want to consider taking EC (which can be effective for up to 120 hours).

There is always pre-ejaculate. Pre-ejaculate serves to lubricate and balance the pH of the urethra so as to make ejaculation a smoother ride and ensure sperm survival.

Some men produce less than others at various times, or may simply not notice it coming out, but it's a very necessary process.

does that also mean that if the penis touches the vulva like a small tap, the girl is still at risk?

Ultimately, ANY time there is direct genital contact, or direct contact of semen with the vulva, there is a possible pregnancy risk.

That's why it's vital to be sure that if you're not ready for pregnancy, that ANY genital-to-genital contact is protected, be that with a condom or by a woman being on a hormonal or other method of reliable birth control.

If you had direct, unprotected genital contact, you had a pregnancy risk. If this was a tap on your mons...not so much. (And I'm not sure I even know what you mean by a tap.) If this was contact to your labia, vaginal opening, clitoris, different story.

Not knowing when you ovulate -- and if you don't chart your fertility, we can't know -- there's not much more we can say. On average, women tend to be most fertile from around day 11 to day 14, and sperm can live in the vagina for several days, but that's just an average. Plenty of women have different most fertile times.

If it's been less than 120 hours, though, and you had a risk, EC is an option for you if you want to exercise it.

Ever since I started my period, I have had my period late. It wasn't until recently that I have become sexually active so being late on my period has been a routine for me. But the number of days that I am late and how many days my period lasts tends to vary. Sometimes my period is late for a week, a day, and sometimes two weeks. Sometimes my period lasts for 5 days, sometimes 3, but never carries the full term of a week. My mom doesn't want me going on birth control pills and I don't plan on having sexual intercourse.

But from what I might have remembered, my boyfriend's penis touched either around the clitoris area. And when I say tap, I mean like, I felt it, then pushed him away. (Like how you would "tap" a person on their shoulder).

Well, if you've got a naked penis and a naked vulva, sounds to me like it's time to start talking about SOME method of birth control. And you don't have to go on the pill: it's very easy for your partner to be using a condom. have you two started talking about that yet?

With contact this brief, no, I wouldn't consider this a big risk: it may even have been no risk at all. But I'm afraid that's the most we can tell you: so much of pregnancy is a gamble, and clearly, your cycles are also pretty erratic, so who knows when you're most fertile.

It really depends on why it's happening. If you're irregularly ovulating, that can make it hard to know when you're most fertile, and that can be a challenge with conception, and if there is a reason you are having irregular periods that can pose an issue -- like if you have an eating disorder, if you have a reproductive ailment -- them maybe. But maybe not, too.

Ultimately, I'd say to anyone that until you really are ready to be a parent, there's just no reason to get worried about fertility.

beginning of month 1: had direct, unprotected genital contact

mid month: menstration came

end of month 2: but menstration is not here yet.

has this got anything to do with what happened during the beg of month 1, or just purely irregular period?

how do we ensure regular period?

If you didn't have any genital contact after your period in month one, then no, your late period would not have to do that. I wouldn't worry, especially since your periods are irregular anyway.

It could be. If you had a normal period after the risk, and haven't had any other risks since, then it could just be a wonky period. It is possible to have it be late or even skipped for a few reasons. M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period? is a great article to look into.


Do you usually have irregular periods?

You cannot have a period and be pregnant. It's not physically possible.
