Latest Questions

My boyfriend and I had sex and he came in me. I am on birth control but I take it everyday at 10pm and just finished my period today so was planning on starting my next pack. He came in me before I already started my next birth control pack so should I take the pill? I've been on birth control for a little over a year now.

YES  you should  definitely start your next pack on schedule.  

Hello I want to know If I should worry about this, the last 2 days I've been experiencing a super brownish vaginal discharge, even though I'm not close to my period, I'm not taking birth control or anything, I don't have any itching or symptoms for an infection, is this normal?

Brownish discharge is usually a sign of "old" blood from the uterus from previous cycle.  

It is not unusual for this to occasionally happen to women.  It is from an small irregularity in hormones.  

If you are sexually active and do not use condoms for protection against sexually transmitted infections, it could also be a sign of an infection 

If that is a possiblity, schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center.  

If you missed the depo injection and it's been one week without sex, the last time you had sex was before the deadline of the injection, can you still get pregnant ?

If you have missed your depo shot and have not had sex since you missed your shot, you will not get pregnant. 

Please call Corner Health or your primary care provider to schedule a depo shot

Hello, I'm 18 years old and the condom broke during sex. I recently had my period, but I'm on birth control and I heard withdrawal bleeding is different from an actual period. (I unfortunately missed a couple pills as well) Does this still mean I'm not pregnant... or should I take a test?

If you missed a couple of pills and the condom broke then you are at risk of pregnancy.

Most likely the bleeding was a regular period and you are not pregnant but not 100% sure. 

If it is possible to take a test then you will know for sure. 

Also please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health to discuss types of contraception/birthcontrol that may work better for you. 

Hi ! I'm a 15 year old girl who is a bit worried About her menstrual cycle. First of all you should know i've never had sex, the furthest I've gone is being fingered about a month ago. Since then I've had my period once and now I've been waiting for the next one to come. I have also been taking antibiotics for my Skin for 20 days now. And now! my period is late, only by a few days but it's normally pretty regular. I'm also experiencing breast tenderness and slight cramps and discomfort in my stomach. I know that it is irrational but I keep thinking I might be pregnant, it sounds dumb but I think it is a fear that every girl has when she doesn't have her period. I also have friends who haven't had their periods in months and I'm very scared of that too. Could my period be delayed because of the antibiotics ? Or because of the stress I'm having thinking I might be pregnant ? Should I take a pregnancy test ?

In order for a pregnancy to occur a sperm has to come in contact with an egg.  If you have never had sex or any contact with sperm in the vaginal area then you are not pregnant. 

Periods are often late due to stress or use of new medications or other hormonal imbalances.  Most likely one of those is the reason for your late periods. 

This would be a good thing to discuss with your primary care provider or a Corner health Provider.  Please call to schedule a telehealth visit.  

Hi I'm 18 years old and never had sex before and my and boyfriend and I are about to do the deed but I'm nervous. Is that normal. And also I'm worried how it may feel and I'm worried it might hurt so and idk what to do.

All of those worries are normal.  Talk to your partner about them and  "do the deed" when you are ready.

Couple of things to consider:

If you do not want to get pregnant you need to find out what form of birth control/contraception is right for you. 

Also, you want to protect yourself from a  (sexually transmitted infection) . Using condoms will prevent sexually transmitted infections.  If your partner has been sexually active before he can get tested to make sure he does not have an infection. 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to get a birth control method that is right for you.

Hi, I'm 24 years old. My period was scheduled to come around next week Saturday. However about a week before I had intercourse and my partner used protection. It has been quite some time (many months, almost a year) since I last had sex. The next day in noticed some bloody discharge and thought it could have been just vaginal tears/irritation. The following day it looked more like my period, the flow wasn't heavy, it seemed like the first day or just before my period starts. We did have intercourse again, without a condom but he did pull out. Later that evening I was bleeding heavier as if it was my first day of my period (came one week earlier) and was the discharge that you would normally see during your period, however it was much lighter than normal. Can having sex cause your period to come earlier and affect the flow to a lighter flow? Or did it just interfere a little with my cervix and my period will come fully as planned next week?

It is difficult to know if your bleeding is from hormonal changes or vaginal/cervix irritation. 

If your bleeding continues to be irregular please schedule an appointment with your health care provider or at Corner Health.  

If you do not use protection you are putting yourself at risk for unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections

Can your period come back after months of getting (and still using) the depo shot

It is possible to have irregular bleeding while on depo.  Even if you have been on it for months
