Re: Male Condom Usage

Yep! Even a small break will be made larger quickly due to friction. If you don't see or notice one you can feel confident that the condom stayed intact.

Re: Male Condom Usage

Generally any fluid you see on the outside of a condom will be lubrication or vaginal fluids. They really are designed not to leak, so without a break there's no reason to assume anything from inside the condom got out!

Re: Painful Sex Over 1 Year After Childbirth...

You know, when folks choose to do sexual things they don't really enjoy "for the sake of the relationship," it's not unusual for it to feel like more and more of a chore as time goes on, because sex that's just not enjoyable is... well, not fun or enjoyable. It could be that the pain durin...

Re: feeling guilty..

You could certainly ask if she wants to hang out one-on-one sometimes, if hanging out with her boyfriend and this guy isn't as fun. But for sure, it sounds like there's some ongoing conflict between the two of you, so if you want to just do a slow fade and not see her as much, that's fine too! Maybe...

Re: Possible pregnancy risk?

Assuming he did keep a condom on at all times during intercourse, your risk would be quite low; even if he had fluids on his fingers that wouldn't be a risk, and it sounds like he ejaculated well away from your vagina. If he did take the condom off during intercourse, there is a bit more of a risk, ...

It's really not ok for her to try to push you into a relationship with anyone , and if she keeps this up it's totally fine to call her on it and ask her to stop.

Honestly, your reasons for not being really interested in dating this guy are less important than the fact that you seem to pretty clearly not want to date him.

As long as you follow directions on pregnancy tests, you can trust those results.

Re: Male Condom Usage

No, condoms are designed so that they contain any fluid inside them. They wouldn't be effective otherwise!
Did you ask this question on text too? We definitely prefer that folks ask in just one place so we can keep things straight and don't have to answer the same question multiple times. :)

Re: weirdest breast soreness i ever had!

It's certainly common for intensity of pms symptoms to vary from cycle to cycle. We can't know for sure what's up but yes, it's possible that you're just having more breast tenderness than usual this time. Maybe just keep an eye on things and if you find that this pain is persisting for weeks on end...

Re: how can I talk to my mom about a pregnancy scare?

Home pregnancy tests really are just as accurate as blood tests you'd take at a doctor's office, and especially since you've taken so many you can trust those results. Several months into a pregnancy, you'd definitely see a positive result on those tests if you were indeed pregnant. The only way to ...
