I am 21 years old and have been with my boyfriend for eight months. This is the first relationship I have ever been in; we had sex only a couple of days after we met and I have been with him since.

Anonymous

My girlfriend is having a rough time emotionally and that is leading to physical pain such as stomach and headaches.
