I know I am missing a lot but these are all I can think of, they are all our own words (from some of the mods) that contain links. If you have anything more specific let me know. And good luck in high school!-cylina
A new bill that will protect women’s access to health care in Massachusetts is headed to Governor Deval Patrick’s desk!
You definitely do NOT place your fingers in your uterus. Every month, you can do a check to make sure it’s still in place by sticking a finger in your vagina and feeling for the string attached to the IUD which should be coming through your cervix.
If you’re uncomfortable with doing that, may I suggest looking into getting the arm implant (implanon and nexplanon)? It will also help lighten/eliminate your periods, it’s good for 3 years, and you don’t have to check inside your vagina. - Paige
Can we PLEASE stop idealizing and overly-romanticizing having a baby? Babies and reproduction are more complicated than little blessings from heaven. Taking care of a baby isn’t only joy and fantasy and love. That shit is the real deal. It requires money, time, patience, commitment — some things some people just aren’t in the place to give to someone else. You are alive right now, so you have a great perception of life. And if you happen to be someone who is trying for a baby, you’re probably in a good place to have one, so your views on living are better than most people. I literally do not understand folks who think ~life~ is the only requisite for a baby to be born. “At least it would have a life” is so bogus. Babies aren’t pets. They are humans with feelings and needs. When you can’t feed or be there for your toddler, what are you going to say? “At least you’re alive lol.” Yeah, no. Doesn’t work that way.
It’s very unlikely, but if you’re feeling worried, it’s never a bad idea to take some plan b! Also, it’s never a bad idea to start taking BC, not only will it help ease your mind if anything like that should happen again, but when you do decide to have sex, you’ll be covered! - Paige
I hear this all the time. The blame is always always ALWAYS put on the pregnant person. It’s really upsetting. I hope she’s doing okay. ❤️ - Paige
