Re: Shout-out: What I've done for MY Sexual Health recently

What a great thread idea!

I made and went to an appointment with my gynecologist as a followup to an abnormal pap smear, which I was feeling pretty nervous about.

Re: Gender dysphoria and health issues

Hey Ihatemyusername, (I'll try to touch on a few of the things you mentioned - the staff will have more to add, I'm sure!) I sympathize with your feelings about growing up in and living in a female body. At times it's been a struggle to see myself positively at times in the context of my body and ge...

Re: did my boyfriend rape me? (or am i overreacting?)

Hi himawariuu, Thanks for bravely sharing what happened to you. Talking about these kinds of experiences can be really difficult. Mo is right. You aren't overreacting; your partner coerced you into sex. (Even boyfriends can do that. You aren't ever obligated to have sex just because you're in a rela...

Re: Mixed messages and depression

Hi Stuck - I'm glad to hear your partner has a solid move-out date. Your boundary is in effect, and it worked the way you intended it to. I don't think you are a doormat at all! Like Heather said, this is a good place to process some of those difficult emotions that are already popping up. I like th...

Re: Mixed messages and depression

Hey Stuck11, This all sounds really tough - I'm so sorry that there are a lot of hard feelings coming up around your partner moving out, and where you're both going from here. If you feel like one, *hug*. I read the whole thread and I just want to say - I am really impressed by how you have advocate...

Re: Tampon help

Hey Cantaloupe, Great idea to poke around with your finger! Sometimes the entrance to the vagina can be difficult to see, even using a mirror - and feeling it can sometimes be tricky too. Don't give up yet, though - this is a great chance to get to know your awesome vulva and vagina. How were you fe...

Re: About my anal health.

Hi Pan, Stimulating a sensitive area like your anus might cause some long-lasting sensation, so that might explain the itching. When you say you are washing with soap, do you mean you get soap inside your butt? That could cause some irritation. Washing outside your anus with soap is fine, but try to...

Re: New Here - relationship /sexual advice?

Hey Wolves99, I hear you - different preferences for frequency of sex is pretty common and normal. Sam W linked to some great resources about how to have a conversation about sex. One suggestion is to start with something positive, so that your partner hears right away that this is something you enj...

Re: clit stimulant gel or lotion

If you get some, I recommend trying it out on a non-genital area first (like your arm or thigh) just to get a sense of how intense the feeling is. That way if it turns out to be too strong, it won't be super-intense on an already sensitive area. I've tried the "warming sensation" condoms i...
