Don't know what I'm feeling

Hey Scarleteen I apologise if any of this comes out as word vomit, I will try my absolute best to summarise but it's a bit of a loaded question/rant/I don't even know My boyfriend (17) and I (16) have been together for about two years and have always had mental health issues of our own. The differen...

Re: On-time pill?

Thank you Sam! My apologies, I just want to clarify
Doing this every day doesn’t affect it? If so, why is it said that it must be taken at the same time every day?
Thanks!

On-time pill?

How important is it to take the combination pill on time? I use Yasmin FYI I’ve been on summer break, so my timing has been inconsistent (eg: might take at 9am one day and then 2pm the next) but usually I take it at 7am every morning, but that hasn’t been for a pack or so. I haven’t missed one, just...

Combo pill risks?

Hello again! Recently, my doctor has recommended I go on the combination pill at the start of my next period to help my menstrual cramps, heavy periods and hormonal acne, but not for contraception, as neither my partner nor myself are ready to become sexually active While I do trust my doctor's opin...

Thanks Marisha! This reassured me a lot that I wasn’t just being icky about something that didn’t matter.

Washing hands before masturbation

Hi! I hope this is the right board for this. If not, I apologise in advance!

Should people with vaginas wash their hands before they masturbate? If so, what does it help?
I have been doing it most of the time, but recently I slipped up and forgot to. Is that an issue?

Thanks! :)

Re: Immense fear of sperm cells (LONG)

Hello again! I apologise if this is a waste of time, I just wanted to drop in and say thank you. I've been doing a lot better lately, and even though the anxieties and fears aren't completely gone, they're manageable now and it's a lot easier to rationalise and move on with my life. The meds have he...

Re: Immense fear of sperm cells (LONG)

Hello again! I return with mainly good news, but I’m still underwhelmed. I got a prescription for meds that will help, and a bit of a clearer idea about the type of thoughts going through my head, but the meds will take a couple weeks to kick in, and it still hasn’t settled down my overthinking, if ...

Re: Immense fear of sperm cells (LONG)

Dear Heather Thank you genuinely so much for this, it’s put my mind at a genuine ease I finally managed to get it into my mother’s head that seeing a doctor about this would be beneficial and could possibly not only get me a prescription but a better therapy plan, which is a freaking huge relief. It...

Re: Immense fear of sperm cells (LONG)

Thank you so much Heather, that might do some good. I think general facts instead of targeted ones might’ve been why I just assumed things. Today was just what I expected, it’s just a compulsive fear that I just have been obsessing over and I couldn’t just think straight I was always scared of touch...

Immense fear of sperm cells (LONG)

Hello Scarleteen! I just want to preface this with the fact that this isn’t a pregnancy scare, it’s related mental health problems to do with a pregnancy scare I recently posted on these forums about some queries to do with sperm cells and their lifespan, and while I got a satisfactory answer, it st...

Re: How long does sperm last?

Thank you so much Alexa, this definitely puts my mind at ease. I do! I see a therapist on a scheduled basis, but I’m not seeing them again until later this month, and haven’t seen them since early December due to Christmas break, so coping has proven more difficult. Though this forum has helped imme...

Re: How long does sperm last?

Thanks Sam! I’m unsure if my reply sent, my phone bugged a bit. I doubt it did, so I’m just going to type it again. About the risk thing, that’s the thing. I’m unsure whether or not I had contact with pre-ejaculate, as he completely dried his hands after he touched the towel. I was asking about what...

Re: How long does sperm last?

Hello again! Still not a pregnancy scare, I'm just trying to learn more so I can take more precautionary measures in the future.

Re: How long does sperm last?

Thank you so much Heather! After reading this I feel I should step back and learn a bit more before I try new things again with my partner, something I was already thinking of doing, as I have only seemed to get looming anxiety from sexual experiences despite the fact that in practice they do not ma...

How long does sperm last?

Hey Scarleteen, this isn’t a pregnancy scare just a quick question How long does sperm live on surfaces such as wet tap handles and cold wet towels? The tap water wasn’t warm in any way, and sperm was washed with foaming hand soap after tap was turned on. In this situation we’re talking pre-ejaculat...
