First time sex (bleeding and birth control)
Posted on: 04/07/2009
My boyfriend and I are 17 and just had sex. We did use a condom, but we pulled out when he cummed in the condom. Right now we're worrying. Me because my friends say that the girl has to bleed and I didn't think so. Is that true? And my friend also gave me her birth control pills. Should I take them?
NO, you don't have to bleed. That is not true. If you are worried about getting pregant, you should go to a teen clinic near you and get started on birth control pills. If you read this on Monday you could take two of your friend's birth control pills today. That will make it less likely that you will get pregnant from having sex on Saturday.
I am glad you are using condoms, and I would like you to continue using them even if you get started on birth control pills. Good Luck.
