I’m inquiring about birth control, I’m 16. I’m in a long distance relationship and have been for over a year, we’re both very happy together. We visit each other every few months, and as you could guess we do have sex when the time comes and always use protection. We’re both paranoid because we’re so far away from each other. So for next time we will be spending a few weeks together and I wanted to inquire about having extra protection. The issue is my mom doesn’t feel great about me taking it...
Hi there, thank you for your question It’s great that you’re thinking about birth control as an added layer of protection for when you are together with your boyfriend. Even if you do decide to move ahead with some form of hormonal birth control, I encourage you to consider continuing to use condoms as an extra measure against sexually transmitted infections.

Can I get pregnant through a guy wearing shorts but me wearing nothing?
Hi, and thanks for your question No, we really wouldn’t see someone getting pregnant this way. Pregnacy happens when there is direct contact of the genitals like penetrative intercourse of penis in vagina, or direct contact with ejaculate (semen) and the vulva or vaginal opening. Even if there is contact between genitals but one partner is wearing clothing, pregnancy is not a risk. We... Read Full Answer
My boyfriend and I had sex (protected) with a condom and he withdrew before ejaculating on June 8. I went traveling to an international country. I was suppose to get my period a week ago (according to my period app) but I haven’t gotten it yet. I also ended up getting sick during that week and was on some meds. I just got back from my vacation. What’s the likely hood of me being pregnant? I don’t have any PMS or pregnancy symptoms. I just feel jet lagged and sick.
