Re: First time taking plan b.

If it looks and feels like your periods usually do, then it's safe to assume that's what it is and that you're not pregnant. However, if you know you're prone to anxiety, taking a test is still the way to go, because having that very concrete test result can sometimes cut that anxiety off.

Re: Finding a balance between sex repulsion and sex negativity?

I also want to add that something you could do in this instance is talk with your brother about where these ideas are coming from. You, and I, are making some guesses about what's motivating his behavior, but the truth is only he can really know what his reasons are. So, you could ask him if he's re...

Re: A long ramble

Does that feel like the kind of thing you could bring up if you two end up living together? Like, as part of establishing the house rules for living together, you talk about what emotional boundaries you each need to have?

Re: Finding a balance between sex repulsion and sex negativity?

Hi brungerbulb, I will say that his lack of knowledge about bodies unlike his own, and his oversized reactions to the idea of those bodies, isn't that uncommon for fifteen year old cis guys. A lot of sex ed is still very segregated by gender, if it's given at all, and what most people describe as wo...

Re: My clitoris disappeared

Hi Sofa24,

So, while your clitoris is likely still there rather than having literally disappeared, the fact that you're experiencing numbness and pain in your genitals is a sign it's time to check-in with a healthcare provider to see what may be going on. Have you already done so?

You're welcome! And when to test depends on the specific test you buy, since they can detect different amounts of hCG. This article goes into detail about how to choose and take a test: Peeing on a Stick: All About Pregnancy Tests

Re: A little concerned

Got it. One thing that may be helpful going forward is to think about how to find a balance between being aware of your body and overly fixating on minute changes. That may look like consciously telling yourself to stop when you start fixating on a bodily function or finding ways to divert your atte...

Hi Edhelraen, So, keeping in mind no one here is a urologist, variation in urine color is really common and generally not something to be concerned about; as you've noticed, lots of things about what you ingest can potentially influence it.

Hi gatadebotas, So, like you said, this is a really common issue, so let's start with some of the things commonly work in addressing it. For starters, when you've tried masturbating in the past, is your brain really engaged in what's going on and are you really aroused? Or are you feeling kind of bo...

Hi Dannysgirl, Menstrual cycle weirdness from emergency contraception tends to only last a month or two.

Hi pissboy420, Because the clitoris is so full of nerve endings, some people do find that, rather than being pleasurable, it's uncomfortable to have it touched directly.

Hi Leo, So, before I jump into your question, I want to say that the one thing you definitely don't want to do is send him nudes. You're underaged, and given how the laws are both you and he could get in pretty serious trouble if you sent him those. You may also want to seriously consider deleting t...

Right, when you ejaculate there's going to be a mix of sperm of different ages in the semen. As for the ovum, in most people of reproductive age (in or past puberty, but before menopause) who have a vagina and a uterus, their ovaries -- tiny sacs just outside the ends of the fallopian tubes -- conta...
