About Me

  1. It's actually a little more in-depth than the topic title, but here are the breakup messages... "Hey. I have been thinking a lot about us lately, and where our relationship is headed. I'm feeling uncertain about our future, and I don’t think that's a good sign. You're really special and you deserve to be with someone who is ready to give you that relationship you’re looking for. We are a great match in many ways- you're attractive, funny, and we have fun together. But for whatever reason, I'm not feeling strongly enough about this, and I know at this point in my life that it is import
  2. Hi everyone, I'm a little embarrassed and shy to go to friends and family on this one so here I go. My bf and I have been together for years. He's a very anxious man and worries about everything, even when it comes to sex. He is afraid of me getting pregnant. When we first started dating, it took him 1.5 years until we finally had sex. One stipulation to this was that I would need to tell him what future medications I take since some interfere with birth control. Simple enough, so I agreed. I am on birth control pills by the way. Fast forward 4 years. There was a time I got extremely sic
  3. So up until December 17 I was in a long term relationship (10 years) I was on the combined pill 9 years of the relationship and did suffer some unwanted side effects of being on the pill that included a little weight gain, migraines, longer periods, high blood pressure, some kind of dry skin condition that I can’t remember the name of. At the beginning of trying to find the best pill for me I tried many, including two types of the mini pill that turned me into a phyco. So I eventually settled on one called mercilon. I have been on that one for many years with the said side effects, I was on it
  4. Have any of you ladies experienced an extreme mood shift when you quit birth control? I only took it for three months and didn't notice a huge difference while I was taking it but now that I've quit... This past week and a half has been a roller coaster ride. Did your emotions level back out? Any good coping strategies when you know you're reacting way more severely than normal? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance.
  5. So I am on the Camilla pill. Its a birth control pill I got from planned parenthood. I have been on it for about a year. I usually take it around the same time daily. If not then at least within a few hours. Like 1-2 hrs difference when I do forgetnon time. Tonight my bf and I used a condom from planned parenthood for sex and it broke but the opening at the tip of his was still covered by the condom. Am I pregnant.
  6. I have a question for you that is worrying me... i used to be on birth control a month ago and stopped taking them for a month. I just got over with my menstrual cycle and started them again last Sunday. So, it has been 4 days on BC. I had sex with my bf last night and was wondering if could get pregnant???? I am worried because i dont want to get pregnant and if i have to, i will go to planned parenthood and do something about it? but i wanted to ask you folks before i went there. what do you think? Would the BC have kicked in by day 4??? does it take weeks to actually work (i hope not)!!
  7. I had been thinking that I might like to, but now I know that I don't want to. My boyfrined doesn't want any more childern. (This will be our 2nd) I know that if I did it I would be really regret it. I not against using birth control after this one is born for sure. I don't want another baby anytime soon after this one. I guess I feel that I am pretty young to make a prement decision like that when I'm not really sure. (I'll be 27 on my birthday.)

    The Patch

    My “girlfriend” and I have been through are ups and downs and have not been sexual active in a long time. She recently started wearing the patch birth control.. something she never has done before. I ask her why she is using birth control when we aren’t having sex. She said it is because her doctor said it will help her regulate her period. I’m not sure if that is true or not. I believe that she is wearing the patch because she is having sex with another guy behind my back. She denies this accusation. I know that she has been hanging out with this other guy because I caught them together and h
  9. I want to scream and cry and shoot someone. Honestly. I'm dealing with enough drama, but for the past three months I have been losing all of my hair. (Most definitely from my bc pills). I have never been a stress-induced hair loser. It has happened before, I've been on about 3 different types in my life. The Microgestin generic of Loestrin Fe made my hair fall out, but it came back eventually. Now I am on the Junel Fe generic of Loestrin Fe and it's allllll coming out again. This is the most emotionally devastating thing ever, I swear I never thought I was so vain. Every time I shower I
  10. Ok, so I had the Mirena IUD inserted January 3rd. Since then I have had a mild-moderate period. Somedays it is heavier than others. I was told to expect some spotting for the first little while, but it has been 2 weeks and I am still bleeding. Does anyone else have the Mirena IUD? Is this "normal" with an IUD? Should I be going back to the OB/GYN?
  11. My boyfriend and I started having sex about 8 months ago...roughly...we've been together 1.5 years total. At first, we had sex a lot. I only see him on weekends and normally we would have sex 2 or 3 times a weekend. On New Years, we had an issue where the condom broke (I'm not on birth control) and so I took the morning after pill a few hours later and I have since gotten my period...so I really do not think I am pregnant. Both him and I have been freaked out to have sex since this happened. I am planning on going on birth control, but I do not have much money (I am 20 and in college f
  12. Ok, so I am about to make love for the first time with a wonderful woman, and we both decide to use birth control (for her) and condoms for me. However, I have never done this before, and I would like to know how do I find out which condom size is the right one for me? I also have a question on the woman's G-spot. How do I find the G-Spot and what is the best way to simulate it? By the best way I mean I would like to really really please her by simulating it if you know what I mean. Finally, I would like to maintain my erection for at least five minutes. However I've noticed that
  13. My girlfriend and I are both 18. We've been together for about 6 months now. We've had a great sex life until recently. About 4 months ago she went on birth control. About 2 months after that she said sex was painful for her now. I thought nothing of it and she said it was the birth control and wanted to take a month break from sex and I was completely okay with it and waited. We recently had sex again and it still was a little painful. What worries me is that after that, she said she thinks the cause is that she's still emotionally damaged from her ex boyfriend and that she wants to have less
  14. OK so June 5th I had unprotected sex and he came inside of me. Five days later I get my birth control taken out. (Nexplanon) . I was told that sperm lives in your body for up to 7 days. Is it a slight chance i could be pregnant? Or is this impossible
  15. I have been dating this guy casually and we have been hooking up. I am 27 and he is 34. Last time we hooked up he came inside of me without any protection or any type of warning. I am on birth control but told him prior to this event that I do not use it for BC, rather for an irregular period and therefore have not rigidly taken it. We have always used a condom when he is about to climax, I had no reason to believe he would not use one this time. I checked my calendar and it was a day within my ovulation window. I feel upset, but I don't know if I should be since I did not specifically say to
  16. Thinking back to my last relationship that ended 2 years ago. It was a very toxic and emotionally abusive relationship. I was cheated on multiple times and treated with so much disrespect. Something that bothers me often when I think about it is when I had lost my virginity to him when we started dating 3 years ago. He was my first boyfriend and my only relationship. I still feel scared to date because of him. When I lost my virginity to him I told him we need to go purchase condoms because I wasn't in any way going to have sex unless we were protected. When we got back to the house and had se
  17. I'm getting really stressed out by my mid cycle bleeding. i am 26 and not on any sort of birth control. It's been going on for eight months, always in the middle of my cycle. Sometimes it's brown, sometimes it's bright red, heavier and mixed with egg-white cervical fluid. At first, I thought it might be ovulation spotting, but then read that this usually lasts three days or so--there have been months when mine lasted for up to a week. I had a pap smear which came back normal. I went to a GUM clinic and got tested for everything--nothing came up. I paid for a private ultrasound (both pelvic
  18. So being a male it's obviously not for me. But I do have a question. So my wife takes the pill. I believe it's ortho? Not sure what that means but I do know it's a low dosage because she said herself. Anyways it has recently been changed from a different kind of pill called something else. I do know that she seemed happier to be on this one. (Edit) : I think she didn't switch pills I believe it was because she was still breastfeeding Anyways, everytime she eats, it makes her very nauseous. EVERY time after. I don't know how to help and it's finals week and she has zero time
  19. So I broke up with my ex 2014. I am a female my ex was a female. She was the only female I have been with and probably ever be with we were together for 7 years. That relationship is long gone. I am not very impulsive but I did do something impulsive I slept with a guy that I met off craigslist. I thought it was going to be a one time thing but it turns out he cannot very impulsive either he is educated. I understand that so many things could have gone wrong but they didnt. I am trying to figure out if I am just a booty call or he sees some potential in me. after we've done the deed he
  20. Hello, It was New Years Eve last night. My girlfriend and I were celebrating a bit excessively. She doesn't use birth control and we rely on the pull out method. We had Intercourse the first time and I pulled out like normal. But we then did it a couple more times in a row without breaks. I didn't ejaculate the subsequent times, but am concerned sperm could have been in my precum. To complicate matters we broke up this morning. I want to ask her to consider plan B, but feel that will make things worse. I want her back, but I think this is something that will definitely end our relationshi
  21. Sorry, this is long, but I want to document these thoughts before I end up forgetting them again (and see if I can get any advice!). I was cleaning out bookmarks on my computer this morning and found an old comment that I had posted in about some issues I was facing with my new birth control. I'd completely forgotten about this post (I made it during a short break during grad school and promptly lost any free time/free brainspace). Anyhow, it sort of hit me like a sack of bricks. I was feeling really anxious My moodswings were off the charts I suddenly felt unnattractive and fat and
  22. This will be a fairly long, multi-faceted post. A lot of it will just be venting, but if anyone has any bright ideas about any particular point, I'd be happy to hear about it. Background: My fiance and I have been together for almost 2 years, and have had the most amazing and healthy relationship I've ever had (sex issues aside). She's smart, caring, sweet, actually talks about issues and communicates, is fun, isn't jealous and doesn't stifle my independence, and is just all around amazing. She'd done some sexual things with previous partners, but never had actual sex (for a number of reaso
  23. I was on vacation with my girlfriend and we dry humped and she was waring pjs and panties under that and she was taking her birth control late and I’m not positive but I think she’s on the mini pill butb when we were dry humping my pen ice was exposed without underwear and I I precame on her pants and she got her period for a second time right when got back which was three or so days later and the other day she says she gained weight and two day later she said she feels nauseous and she is under a lot of stress but I don’t know if she pregnant or not should I be worried

  25. I have been with my bf for a year and month. And I'm not sure I still love him well I do but not in love with him. He's my first relationship I'm 19 and he's 21 and he says he I'm the only one but sometimes I don't imagine a future with him mostly because I'm realistic and it's my first relationship. But recently this week I have seen him that much and we havent had sex in a month because I got a iud birth control and I can't. I just know if I'm loosing interest or it's because I haven't seen him and haven't had sex. He says I have abandonment issues which I don't, I call him a lot mostly beca
