This seems a little wierd to say or even ask, but im desperate to find out anyway. see my boyfriend and i have been having sex for quite a while now, i actually lost my virginity in November of 2005. i do believe it was about a couple of weeks or even months(not too sure) that during the event of us being together in his room alone having sex that i began to feel a little wierdness kind of pain in my stomach(kind of how if your on a rollar coaster and you go down you feel that tingling in your stomach), and i didnt know what to do except lay down for a few minuetes, being that it hurt that much. that was the first pain of that sort. ever since ive been ok during our intercoarse, except when he puts in a position that i begin to feel it again. Im embarrassed to say: i only feel it when im laying down with him in the middle of me holding up my legs, or when he is behind me. It's like he's hitting something, like a barrier, and i can feel it. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

He's probably hitting your cervix. The vaginal canal doesn't go on forever, and most women find it uncomfortable (or sometimes painful) when their cervix gets bumped into.

It's not going to cause you permanent damage, but you might want to avoid positions where your cervix gets bumped a lot if you're feeling uncomfortable.

(And you can start a new thread in this area if you want.)

I recently just had sex for the first time and have been nervous ever since about getting pregnant. We used a condom and i planned it around my period so i could make it harder just incase something happened not to get pregnant..should i be worried??

If a condom was used for all genital contact, and did not tear or slip off, you have had no pregnancy risk.

(In the future, please start a new thread for questions in this area - this particular thread was never intended for questions. Thanks!)

Possibly a yeast infection, definitely a vaginal infection of some kind. A trip to the doctor is in order so you can be properly diagnosed and treated.

(In the future, if you have a question, please start a new thread for it - that'll help ensure that your question gets answered because it's easier to see. Thanks!)

If you had unprotected intercourse, yes, you could get pregnant. If that's the case, then you have 120 hours to obtain emergency contraception, if you do not wish to become pregnant.

You can, by the way, start your own thread in this area, it is only replies that are limited.

You really should see a doctor about this-- we can't give you a diagnosis online, and we aren't even doctors, but ANY unusual itchy needs to be checked out, because it can indicate infection.

Okay so, I have irregular periods, Maybe 2 or 3 a year. I was on my period starting last Saturday, I had sex for the first time on the following Sunday and everyday after that for a week without a condom. He came in me about 15 times or more. Do you think I am pregnant? Is there a good chance? How good of a chance?

You have a very HIGH risk of pregnancy here. You also have a very HIGH risk for STIs.

You can take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after the last risk or the first day of a missed period. If it's negative, take another in a week or so. If it's positive, you need to see your doctor.

You also need to see your doctor about STI testing, if you and your partner have not already been tested and are monogomous.

If you'd like to avoid pregnancy (and STIs), you need to be using condoms.

Have you seen your doctor about your irregular periods?

(You can start your own topics here, which would probably lead to your question getting answered faster.)

I've read in a few articles on the internet that semen smells like cleaning products, laundry rooms, etc. My semen smells exactly like peaches though and I was wondering if you can tell me why or if somethings wrong with me. I'm 15 and I'm a virgin. I don't want to ask neither of my parents because it'd be way too weird. Thanks.

My boyfriend and I sort of had sex. The head of his penis only went half way into my vagina, but it did not tear, or atleast I did not feel any pain. It was our first time and was unprotected. I don't know if that's what you would consider sex. In between, we gave each other oral. He didn't ejaculate inside of me, but there was some pre-ejaculation or a possibility of it in me. I am worried about pregnancy, even though I had just finished having my period cycle three days before. I was told that I can't take a pregnancy test yet. What should I do?

Sex is when anyone does something for the purpose of sexual gratification or interest.

Vaginal intercourse is the entry of the penis into the vagina. For many women, there is nothing TO tear: even women with partial hymens (and the hymen is at the vaginal opening when it's still there) will often not experience bleeding or tearing when the sex isn't forced or rough.

So, by either count, you had sex and you had intercourse. The depth of the penis makes no matter, not by definition, and certainly not when it comes to STIs or pregnancy risks.

You can't take a pregnancy test yet but you can do something even more useful if this just happened: you can prevent pregnancy by obtaining emergency contraception as soon as possible: it will work up to 120 hours after a risk, but the sooner you get it, the more effective it is.

(And just for the record, on average, most women are most fertile mid-cycle, and sperm can live up to five days inside the vagina, so assuming this was a low-risk time isn't sound.)

Masturbation is sex: it's just sex with yourself.

When most people say "having sex," they're usually talking about partnered sex.

(Going to lock this thread now, btw, not b/c your topic is a problem, but because this was an announcement thread not related to any of the questions people have posted to it. For future reference, either replying to a topic that's already like yours or starting a new topic is the best way to get your question seen.))
