Re: Disappointed in my bf

Hi, sorry to jump in, but I think it's wonderful that you've got an action plan in mind, and that it's such a healthy one! I think you'll feel much better now that you've decided that you're just going to give your boyfriend space and let him figure his stuff out, and that in the meantime, you'll ge...

Re: Sleep Orgasm?

Hi jenny01, I can't tell you about my personal experience, sorry! But this is super-duper normal. Involuntary vaginal lubrication happens all the time, and that includes during sleep. And vaginal lubrication usually doesn't depend on our having an orgasm: vaginas start to get wet when we start feeli...

Re: Stuck in the Middle

Hi jenny01, I'm sorry that your friend's going through a rough time, which will inevitably get worse when his girlfriend finally breaks it off. That period will be tougher on you as well, because you'll feel the need to support him emotionally even more than you've already been doing. I hope that yo...

Re: Is my withdrawal bleed colour normal?

Hey! Brown vaginal discharge is perfectly normal, it is just old blood that's taken a little longer to leave the uterus. Blood that stays in the uterus longer gets oxidized, which makes it look dark red/brown. Bright red blood means it's fresh. Implantation bleeding typically only lasts 24-48 hours,...

Re: How effective are condoms?

Hello Juliaho90, You're fully protected throughout period week, when you're having your withdrawal bleed. Since you've been regular with your pills this month, and will be regular with them next month, no pregnancy is possible. In addition to that, you have condoms! So that's a double layer of prote...

Re: Intense, Heavy Bleeding After Losing Virginity

Hi pascal, While it isn't unusual for some people to experience light bleeding for a day or two after vaginal intercourse (whether it's the first time or the fiftieth), heavy bleeding of the sort you're experiencing is not a normal outcome. Since a) your period isn't due, b) the bleeding is heavier ...

Hi Juliaho90, Is it recommended though to take the pill at the exact same time each day? Like exactly at 1030am for perfect use? If I take it within the 3 hour window you mentioned, is that still perfect use? It's still perfect use within the 3-hour window, the pill's efficacy stays the same! If I w...

Hello Holly55! Post getting the implant, periods will take a little while to settle down as your body slowly adjusts. Since it's only been 3 weeks since you got yours, I don't think having a normal period is any cause for concern. While some irregularity in periods is common, as Mo highlighted in hi...
