Re: Estrogen is making sex and masturbation really nice for me now, but it's adding new challenges too.

Hey KittyPink, Hope it's okay I'm jumping in here :) My guess is with some communication and creativity you and your partner will find fun and pleasurable work-arounds to any challenges that difference in body sizes presents. Also, if you are exploring with your partner being more dominant during se...

Re: Possibly Pregnant?

Hi kpopisthebest, You said "I feel like that’s perhaps not a very mature choice but I don’t want to add the anxiety of knowing there’s a test coming in the mail and having people query me what it is." For what it is worth, this decision feels mature to me! I see you thinking through the di...

Hi Juliaho90, Without the ability to tell the future, there is unfortunately no way for us to know for certain how exactly your body will respond. There will be a period where your body adjusts to being back on the Yasmin pills -- like when you first starting taking them, but what exactly that will ...

Hey Scoobasteve, It makes a lot of sense to me that as you are navigating this new romantic interest and experiencing more in that area, your relationship with your sexual self might be in a moment of flux!

The ring is over 90% effective at preventing pregnancy with typical use, and when combined with condoms they are 99% effective. Also, pre-ejaculate has a very low sp...

Hey Alksa, Welcome to the boards! Glad to have you here :) - Sounds like right now you are using 3 birth control methods (the pill, condoms, and withdrawal or "pulling out"). That means you are very protected against pregnancy. In the 99.9%+ range. (You can read more about the effectivenes...

I'm glad the candy helped a little bit, though I'm not surprised that it didn't help more. When dealing with intense menstrual pain it's important to first make sure that there is not something larger going on that needs medical attention--and once that is ruled out you can focus on treating the pai...

Re: Weirdness with my period

I'd say even if that doesn't happen again, it'd be worth it to set-up an app just to discuss the increasing pain. Just so you have more info about what is (or isn't) going on. Do you think you could chat with your mom this week?
