Re: Testing for Pregnancy

Using condoms on the regular sounds great! Wanting to feel safer is perfectly understandable. The pill, has a 99,7% effectiveness rate with perfect use (which is, when you follow the manufacturer's directions correctly and consistently) and 91% effectiveness rate with typical use (which means you fo...

Re: Testing for Pregnancy

Hi kourt1996! I think it's safe to say that you haven't ovulated, since you take your pills mindfully. However I don't think that Plan B was really necessary because, as Carly said, Plan B is most useful in certain situations, which are different than what you described. It's not meant however, to b...

Re: Might already be dealing with fertility Issues

I really hope you do! In any case, I'm sure the answers will become more clear with time and thought. I believe sometimes things have a way of working themselves out, you know?

Re: Might already be dealing with fertility Issues

Hi Amthyst! I absolutely understand what you are saying, as a person who deals with gynecological problems from a young age myself. It can be really frustrating to feel that the possibility of getting pregnant is taken away from you before you even had a chance to give it a thought. It's definitely ...

Re: pregnancy risk?

Hi francisforever! You know, I wouldn't really say the risk of pregnancy is very high in the situation you describe, but of course, it's not zero. However, the risk of STIs is pretty high. And since you are asking, perhaps you might want to check this article: Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On a...

Re: Someone at school outed me and now I feel betrayed

Hi Hel! I'm glad you reached out again, and that you are feeling comfortable with your friends and the rest of the class as is. I'm sorry though, that you have found no support from your school. It's safe to say that a lot of people in the community go through a similar experience when facing discri...

Re: Transition fears, lack of sexuality, body issues

Hi goldensomething, You are always welcome to keep in touch, and I am glad you did! I understand that there are certain parts of our bodies that might trigger unpleasant feelings for us, and even more when we know that they make us look so different than how we feel. I think it's awesome that you ar...

Re: pregnancy anxiety ocd

Hi Anonymous786, As you said, you already know deep down that the scenarios you describe do not cause pregnancy, no matter how intricate they become. You know somehow that your discomfort stems from anxiety and not from real threatening situations. It is a widespread opinion among us that the best y...

Hi idk anymore! I'm sad to read that you are feeling so down lately. The kitten and the new friends sound very good though. I know that being a teenager there is much anxiety to experience love as we see other people experiencing it and depictions in the media of how our lives should look like, how ...

Re: Need some comfort

"Let's say I say no and he kept asking and I say yes and I was okay when I said yes as well too, is that coercion?" Yes. Because not taking a no for an answer doesn't leave room for the other person to do anything but say yes eventually, don't you think? Consent is not enthusiastic and fre...

Re: Need some comfort

I have to say I agree with the many people who have told you to listen to yourself to make a decision. You have to work internally and find the answer because there is no external person who will be able to do that for you. Saying that you are going to break up with him IF it was coercion seems to m...

Re: Need some comfort

Hi flores2231! First of all, I think you shouldn't feel terrible nor guilty for acting in ways you now realize are not okay to act like. Sometimes our first approach to how relationships look like can come from different sources including the media, which in many cases, portrays awfully unhealthy re...

Re: boyfriend just wants to sleep

Hi eli.ja! Wanting to see your partner during the day to do things together is absolutely normal! And I think that what you want or expect from your relationship is of paramount importance, and not less important than anyone else's needs. Of course you can be understanding of your partner's situatio...

Re: I don't really get crushes anymore?

Hi Skylar7593! I fully agree with Sam. You should take into account that our sexuality can vary throughout our lives, therefore you might once again feel crushes the way you used to, or in a different way that you experience them now. Just because certain things are not happening at the moment or ha...
