I started the mini pill a month ago, I'm currently on my second pill package, but I am currently having spotting isn't it supposed to disappear after the first month, is this normal? How long would it last?

I know I shouldn't be doing this, but yesterday my bf and I had anal and right after vaginal sex, we didn't change the condom, I'm really nervous about that, what risks I should be worried about, I went to the bathroom immediately after and we were both clean but I'm really worried, should I go to the gynecologists right away? Or what should I do?

Using a condom protects you against sexually transmitted infections.  

You may be at risk for other infections that can be transmitted from the rectum to the vagina which is why it is recommended that you change condoms. 

If you have any symptoms such as vaginal discharge, burning with urination, abdominal pain you should schedule an appointement with your primary care provider or come to Corner health center.

My boyfriend and I are 15. We have been dating for two years and both virgins. I didn’t want to have sex yet because of our age and not being ready. But he kept asking and I didn’t seem to be satisfying him in other ways cause I’m inexperienced . I finally said yes and it was really painful. He was nice and gentle but we had to stop cause it hurt too much. I agreed to try again another time. Since we talk every day and have been together so long, I’m really hurt he hasn’t called and only texted when I texted first. I feel like he doesn’t understand it’s normal how the first time went and like he thinks I’m bad at it. I tried talking about it but he gave short replies. Is he a creep or maybe just embarrassed? I feel like I made a mistake because of how he’s acting after.

It sounds like a difficult situation.  You have not done anything wrong. 

Please talk about this with an adult who you can trust.  Also you can schedule an appointment at Corner health to discuss further .

My boyfriend and I spent a night together, he never penetrated me, but we did do oral stuff, I didn't see where he came, but he said he didn't do it anywhere near my vagina. However, the following week I started feeling very tired, was peeing a lot and then the following week I was fine, now it has been about 5 weeks since we've been together like that. I ended up starting my period around 4 weeks after the night together. When I bled it was really heavy, however, I normally last 6 days and this time I lasted 2 days with a heavy period then for 6 days I had been spotting what looked like brown /dried blood, and recently I've been feeling nauseous after I eat anything. I spoke to my boyfriend about this and he says I shouldn't be worried. But I haven't been able to get a lot of sleep and have been stressing a bit because I feel there could be a possibility of me being pregnant along with other stuff I've had on my mind. is it possible that I may be pregnant, and should I get a test done?

From what you describe it does not sound like you could be pregnant. In order to be pregnant a sperm has to come in contact with the egg. The sperm must enter the vagina. If you’re concerned about the possibility of pregnancy come to the Corner Health center for a pregnancy test and to discuss the other things that have been on your mind.

I got my first period when I was 10, and since then I have consistently had 2 periods per month, each one lasting 7 days with heavy flow. I am now 17 and very VERY tired of this. I’ve gone to the doctors two years ago, and they could not find a reason for it but gave me birth control pills and iron pills to try to regulate my period and help with my anemia. While taking the birth control pills my period did decrease to 1 per month, but once I ran out of the pills it went back to 2 per month. I am now back to my previous schedule. Do I need to worry?

Many women need to use birth control pills (oral contraceptive pills) to regulate their periods.
