Its been 5 days since my last period ended, 36 hours since I had sex and shortly after that I took plan B.
What are the odds I get pregnant? How can I increase my chance of pregnancy?

Anonymous 14252

Why did you take plan B if you want to get pregnant?

Anonymous 14254

>>14252
"increasing odds" is more of a hypothetical, I was just wondering if there is a method to increase chances after plan b, though I wouldn't try any methods because I do not wish to be pregnant

I've thought some about my post over the evening. Still unsure; but I do know that I sometimes wish I could have some cute bras/tops to wear rather than just being so comfy without. Seems like a strange thing to be enviable of, no?

Anonymous 14395

>>14394
Why? There's nothing wrong with wanting to be cute. Have a look at Mimi Holliday and similar brands. They do very cute things. Even if you can't find a bra you like, you can get a cute vest or camisole to wear as lingerie.

I have a very hard time trying to let go of hangups I have from childhood over this. I was very introverted and hated any part of my body that showed I was a girl.

But those are my hangups, not yours lol. Thank you for the ideas to check out

Tips for quitting BC pill Anonymous 14245[Reply]

Hey miners, my husband's vasectomy is going to be scheduled soon, so that means I can finally stop taking the demonpills (a.k.a. Lutera) and I am wondering if anyone can share their experience coming off of them? (BC in general if not specifically Lutera)

I have been taking them for about 4 years. I know they make me gain weight. (I used to top out at 120lbs, but now I cannot get myself under 140 with regular exercise/dieting) They also destroyed my sex drive. Though they got rid of my back/chest acne so I am not looking forward to its resurgence.

I have read horror stories about women becoming suicidal for a year after going off the pill, or turning into someone they don't recognize because the pills altered their hormone balance for so long. Anyone have some wisdom/experience/warning/tips for me?

Ugh, good to know- I have heard that sometimes it's the first couple months that are the worst. Did you see the issue drop off a bit after that period?

I didn't go on the pill specifically for skin issues, but I did have pretty moderate but annoying chest/back acne beforehand that totally went away with the pill.

If you have any tips for combatting body acne in particular I would love to hear em.

Anonymous 14339

>>14294
you're welcome
>I definitely think that the pill lowered my sex drive considerably
then I think it will come back after you go back on it and you have that to look forward to <3

>>14314
actually I had some body acne after I went off now that I think about it, and benzoyl peroxide wash did the trick
Panoxyl is too harsh to use on the face IMO, but good for the body
CeraVe's benzoyl peroxide was was good for my face, didn't dry it out or irritate it

Anonymous 14371

>>14314
i wish i could help out more, i have practically resigned to the fact i will always have breakouts because personally my acne is hormonal. it makes a huge difference in my life self esteem wise to be on the pill but i feel like it will never be worth it considering i haven't even been sexually active in almost three years. typically benzoyl treatments like >>14339 said. carbs and refined sugars are notoriously inflammatory, drink water, get a good nights rest. i am sure you have heard it all before! godspeed

I suffered from terrible migraines when I was on a low estrogen pill. I ended up getting the Nexplanon implant when I was 17 and I'm on my second one. I no longer have periods but I get phantom cramps from time to time. Honestly best decision I ever made

Wow, you're lucky. It made me bleed continuously for weeks until I just took it out. Sucks about the cramps though.

Stupid early. I have a very vivid memory of looking down on Ariel-print panties and seeing blood. Was 8 or 9. Tried putting in a tampon one (1) time, and have been on pads for 25 years.

I'm also crazy jealous. Hitting puberty that early made me so bulliable. I was suddenly this gorilla in a sea of little humans. Some days I don't think I ever recovered from it.

abortions Anonymous 12757[Reply]

Hot topic, but what's your opinion of it? I don't like the fact that so many young people act like it's nothing, it's a quite serious topic with many angles to look at it from.
In my opinion abortions should be available until the 8th week, which is around the time the nervous system and brain reach a level of development where the fetus can be called "conscious".
Special circumstances should be available for rape victims.

The whole point of the question is that it is written in stone, its 100% definite. Even if not actually possible, pretend it is, that is the point

Anonymous 14274

>>12757
>conscious
>fetus
Pick one. A pig has a sense of intelligence analogous to that of a 3-year-old human child, and we slaughter them without a second thought, so I'm going to have to respectfully dismiss the idea that there's a perfect point in the neurological development of the fetus that's cause for any sort of hard-stop on the harvest unless the fetus can survive on its own.. in which case, it becomes a baby.

Anyways, abortion is honestly just a tool used to ensure a society isn't overpopulated because once that happens, that's the end of civilization [As We Know It] the death of your culture. Although… the death of one culture doesn't necessarily guarantee the one replacing it will be any more benevolent or deserving of power..

>just rape victims

I like how you leave out victims of incest here

if someone wants an abortion that means they know they would probably be a bad parent
let women who know they'd fuck up a kids life have an abortion, it keeps less people from living shitty lives
from what i've seen other women say, having an abortion is traumatizing, and that is "consequence" enough for their irresponsibility
they don't need to be shamed more imo

as for women who treat abortions like they're a morning after pill,
i'm convinced they have some sort of mental illness that stops them from feeling bad about it/being responsible
which, again, probably means they would make terrible mothers

i never had an abortion but miscarried when i was raped as a teenager, and i felt so much guilt about being happy i miscarried i still sometimes cry thinking about it
i would have had an abortion if i didn't miscarry, and i was raped so it'd be less looked down on, but i still would have felt guilty if i had an abortion
so i think i have some empathy for women who get abortions because average woman would definitely feel guilty about it

You shouldn’t feel guilty anon. Miscarriages are natural and more common than most people realise. It’s ok to feel relief that the situation resolved itself but it’s not your fault it happened. Just a fluke it happened then.

Anonymous 14293

>>14291
i know this logically and only feel that way when i'm already in a really low place and think about it
i don't feel guilty on a logical level, just in an uncontrollable feeling type of way if that makes sense?
it's probably a motherly instinct thing

I pop my own pimples and it doesn’t make a difference in scarring for me. In fact, if I don’t pop some of them, they will turn into full-blown deep cysts and possibly spread and create more cysts.

Anonymous 13643

I tried not popping pimples once and one of the pimples I didn't pop grew into the biggest and nastiest pimple I ever had and gave me an awful dark scar full of those little pits. After it popped, the stretched skin on the pimple remained loose and baggy for weeks, until it glued back into whatever is under it.
Amazingly, soon after a pimple just like it showed up on the other side of my face, and I didn't pop it, and the same thing happened again.

I used to pop pimples on my ex bfs back. It hurt him alot but he liked it for some reason.

Anonymous 14289

>>13099
>i. what does he mean by this?
it's "oddly satisfying"
>ii. is he right?
it is oddly satisfying but not good, leaves scars, and promotes the zit getting re-infected and having a worse pimple come up in the same spot

you're right, he should just leave them alone and maybe use a wash with benzoyl peroxide or something if he really has a problem with zits

Anonymous 14292

I check my face carefully daily and squeeze spots as soon as I notice them, then put on acne patches to get the rest out if needed. I don’t see the advantage of letting the spot get bigger and more painful when it is going to burst anyway. It could have healed in the time you let it grow. And earlier squeezing means a smaller hole to heal.

The only ones I leave are cysts from eating foods I’m allergic to and that’s only because they aren’t fully formed yet. Once the pus is fully formed after a day or so, then I can squeeze it and it goes away. If I try to squeeze before that, it doesn’t go away and is more likely to leave a scar from all the squeezing skin damage.

Period Survey Anonymous 9534[Reply]

I've never been completely sure if my periods are normal or not so I would like to do a survey:

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?


>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?


>Do you have spotting in between periods?


>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?


>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?


>How long does the pain last?


>How often do you need to take pain medication?
