Earlier this week, I blogged about the potential of a birth control pill for men. Now, it seems that women might be undergoing “vasectomy-like” procedures in a new form of sterilization that reduces the healing time and risk normally associated with female sterilization procedures like tubal ligation (also called having your “tubes tied”.
I’ve been having sex with my boyfriend for a little over a month. Already I have had to take the morning after pill twice after unprotected sex. Then, today, we determined I should take it again. The previous times I have taken it, it caused a few days to a week of bleeding. Would that be considered my period?
I had sex last night for the second time. I woke up in the morning to find that I had bled. I was embarrassed and confused because the first time I had sex I bled and I didn’t think it would happen the second time. Why did this happen?
My girlfriend and I are engaging in dry sex. I am getting a lot of mixed signals about the pregnancy risk from dry humping when I look for answers on the internet. What are some birth control methods we could use for better peace of mind?
I am a virgin but my boyfriend is not. I’m ready to have sex and though we’ve been sexually active in other ways I have a lot of questions about penetrative sex for a virgin. My boyfriend wants me to feel as comfortable and informed as possible – where can we learn about birth control options and sexuality issues?
Some questions about sexual health have fairly succinct answers (e.g., questions about the effectiveness rates of contraception). Other questions, however, require a good deal of personal reflection. Case in point: Many women and men (of all ages) wonder at one time or another whether the relationship that they are in is a good one.
My girlfriend has missed her period by about five weeks. Now, we have never had actual sex, just a form of dry sex. However, I am starting to get worried that she may be pregnant. We are both in separate colleges, and I am just so worried now. I mean, we haven’t had sex, but is there a possibility she is pregnant from me? What should we do next?
