Q:Oh thank you for your reply! I was so worried about spotting! Thought it's very serious and dangerous problem. Will it stop though?
Nope, it can lead to anemia if you are bleeding a lot, but no in and of itself it is not dangerous. It is hard to say if it will clear up on its own or not. But my guess would be not for several months, minimum. I would just make an appointment with your doctor, or give them a call/email.
Starting a conversation to get to know someone or breaking an awkward silence can be very stressful. To start a conversation when you have nothing to talk about, use these guidelines.
1. Introduce yourself if necessary. If you don’t know the person, breaking the ice is very simple: look…
Q:Okay so a few weeks ago I told a guy I liked him just because I was like "I don't care, I'm just gonna tell him, yolo" (haha) but now I've discovered it was only a 5 minutes crush and I now no longer like him but he still thinks I do (and he likes me back). I'm trying to let him down easy by saying I'm not looking for anything right now, but he's hella confused and I'm not quite sure how to tell him/explain that it wasn't a serious crush, and it's gone.. But in the nicest way. Ahhh
I would just keep hinting at it, so don’t hang out with him one-on-one, wait to text him back, etc. And just slowly let him figure it out on his own. If that doesn’t work then just be straight up with him and just tell him “hey my crush just kinda fizzled, but I still want to hang out with you as friends I really like when we (activity) together.” Only add the friends part if you really mean it though, don’t lie to him.
Q:Spotting is so confusing. Why does it occur? Is it usually a hormone problem? Is consistent spotting a new me?
It has to do with hormones, yes. But it is not a problem. And generally yes, spotting will tend to stick around for at least a few cycles once it appears. But you can easily treat it with hormonal birth control.
Q:Is spotting anytime normal? Even though they are not on consecutive days?
Yes, though it can be annoying, so ask your doctor about ways to solve it.
Q:When i push my finger inside my vagina, I reach a flat hard place and behind is a longish and soft textured er snake like thing? Is that my cervix?
Uhm, most likely yes. But I honestly have no idea. Your cervix is the only thing that you would really run into in the vagina.
1. Accept that it is normal, and something you’d expect.
2. Talk about your feelings with someone you know well. Don’t bury how you feel and pretend that you’re OK.
3. Look after yourself – get plenty of sleep, take time for exercise, and make sure you eat well.
4. Ask when you’re confused, or…
Q:basically me and my boyfriend have been together 4 years and we haven't experimented a lot with the sexual side of things. He is asking if he can buy a dildo/vibrator for us to use and I sort of wanted one for myself and not sure about him using it. What are your thoughts? Do you think this would make things better in the bedroom?
If that’s something you both want to try then that’s great go for it. But if not then it’s good to talk about how the whole thing will go down some more and see if its something you’re comfortable with.

Q:Hey I've been with my boyfriend for 4 years now (we are 26 and 28) and I really want to get engaged to him and start a family but idk how to bring it up we have talked about kids before and marriage and we both want it but I'm not sure how to tell him I'm ready to start trying for kids or for marriage?
Well you have been with this person for four years, and want to be with him for 70 more, so I suggest you learn how to talk to him. So I would just have an honest conversation about how you are ready for children/marriage. Just say it that plainly “Sweetie, I just want to start making our lives together and start having children.” or whatever feels most natural to you.
Q:Hi, I have spotting every month, but my doc says it normal, but it's always been during my ovulation time. But last month, I had spotting outside of my ovulation window and about 5 days before my period. The spotting is like thin pink streaks, but I never had them so far away from my period before or so long after my ovulation. Should I be worried?

Q:Hi there. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost two years now and we both love and care about each other and all of that stuff. But when we text each other after a while we sort of run out of new things to talk about. This doesn't happen in person at all in fact we hardly ever stop talking when were together. But for some reason when we text it's just not the same. Is this a normal thing? And do you have any advice on how to maybe fix it?
Yes it’s normal, I think anyway. There is only so much you can stay and convey in a text, you don’t have as much natural conversation progression? I guess like you do in person when you’re subconsciously reading their face and body language.
I don’t think there is anything to fix really, maybe just try harder to push a change of conversion but personally I don’t think its necessary partners to text each other all the time anyway.

Q:Hi there, my boyfriend and I were cuddling naked today and his penis was resting on my vaginal opening and I didn't realize. I went to touch his head when I realized there was thick gooey stuff on it. He had ejaculated 2 times before but peed before this happened. My period ended 2 days ago. I don't know if the gooey stuff was my discharge or his Precum, since he's never precumed before I'm not sure as to what it looks or feels like. I was however wet. Should I be concerned about pregnancy?
No probably not. But one of the reasons condoms aren’t super reliable is because they have to be used anytime genitals are touching.This is why we recommend using birth control and condoms, so you are always protected from pregnancy and STIs

Q:Hey, I've been with my boyfriend for nearly 2 years and he is going to university in September, 3 and a half hours away. I'm really worried about what will happen and about the distance and if we will stay together. I have tried to speak to him about it but he gets upset saying I don't trust him if I'm worried about it and he promises me we will stay together and it will all be fine. I just can't help but worry constantly about it and it's really getting to me and I don't know what to do
I would just keep talking to him, and the thing is he may be trying to avoid talking about it because he doesn’t want to accept he is leaving. So just insist on it. Tell him that you two need to talk about it, and ask when a good time will be.
Q:I keep getting nightmares that are making me feel really sad and I don't know how to stop them. I'm generally happy and then I'll fall asleep and have nightmares that make me so sad I can't sleep for 2 hours after I wake up from them, what should I do?
I would chat with a psychologist or psychiatrist, there is probably underlying reasons for the nightmares that they can uncover and help you deal with.
