You don’t care that you caught 3 stds... the point is you’re lucky you didn’t catch something like HIV or genital herpes etc. something that is not going away
@lovedejj_xo ehh, they were all while I was in the military, STDs and military are like the military and divorces, they just go together. And again, at home HIV tests are sold at Walgreens, I just keep a couple at home, its been over... 3 months since I've had sex with anyone other than my wife anyway, so it's not like I'm slinging it around on a regular. I don't think I would care too much if I had herpes, really I'd be more concerned about whether or not I gave it to my wife tbh.You're also forgetting about hepatitis, herpes is an annoyance virus. Hep can kill you much more quickly and painfully than the high five.
Oh you’re married now gotcha and I’m aware I work with substance use population hep is a big one. I tell everyone just get tested 💆🏽♀️
Never seen the hiv home kits I’m going to bring this up at work now. That’s good then
It's an FSA item as well, and our FSA account resets in a week, so I'll probably get some new glasses and a couple boxes of those lol
Also good on you for working with the needle users, hepatitis runs through their groups like wildfire, combine that with alcohol and many of them drop out from hep C, took one of my friends many tries to get clean, I'm glad he did and didn't die nodding out and just stopping breathing somewhere.
Do you ever want to be a mom?
Or get ur tubes tied
@coachTanthony HELL NO!!! Only if you count wanting a dog, otherwise- never. No interest in kids or raising them.
@LonewolfMeme Believe me, I would love to. I looked into it when I was younger, around your age actually! But thanks to our government and healthcare field, women are not allowed to get tubal ligation unless they've already at least one child OR have a medical condition that would make it a necessity. They fear if a woman has a tubal ligation, she might regret it later or some nonsense like that. The women they do grant the procedure to usually have to receive therapy to make sure they are mentally and emotionally ready for it as well :|Absolute nonsense. Yet men can get a vasectomy, no questions asked.
No birth control is 100 percent affective there is alwaus a risk of pregnancy if you are sexually active. Not having sex is 100 percent affective
Birth control isn't. As my mom had me and my brother while on it.
@LonewolfMeme Exactly! I can definitely vouch for that as I work in a hospital and see and hear it everyday from women, "We used the pill AND condom, but I still got pregnant!" It's rare but it DOES happen! IUDs seem to be somewhat effective (99 percent) but they have their share of side effects as well... yeah I've definitely been doing my research. Which is why I rather get my tubes tied. However, at least in my state, it's such a hassle as physicians rather women have at least a child before having the procedure done.Trust me, when I've brought it up in the past, I get some nasty, judgmental looks because apparently as a woman I'm expected to have children :|a partner willing to get a vasectomy, or maybe I'll be lucky enough to find a guy that's sterile and can't have kids.
* I rather have a partner...That last line got cut there, stupid phone
@Cynicaldreamer the only form of contraceptive that is 100% effective is celibacy 😂
@Midnight_Kiss Well until I find the right man, that's exactly what I'm doing!
Awww I think you would be a super cool mom playing video games with our children Ha
Oh my my my! I came so late to this conversation...👀👀👀👀👀👀👀
@DorkVader Ha Ha Ha Space Invaders and chocolate chip cookies! OH YEAH
@DorkVader @coachTanthonyUh, why was I not invited over to the Space Invader and cookie party? I feel ostracized dang it. ... I'm just going to go play my WoW and eat some chicken and fries until it's time for bed! LOL
@Cynicaldreamer @DorkVader Just got done killing some noobs... it’s couchy wouchy time!!! I do have a craving for a chocolate chip cookie though!! 🍪
Sounds like a blast, all of it. Time to get killed by old bees

Really birth control pills can make your kids in the future have autism, Down syndrome, adhd? How?
@snuggems Birth control can also increase your risk of cancer, osteoporosis, and a myriad of other diseases. When a woman has sex, she naturally is supposed to get pregnant as a natural part of the process. Birth control alters this natural process and confuses the body in many ways. Its kinda like taking a pill so you won't have to poop. All humans are supposed to poop. Its unnatural to not poop. And its not good for the body to avoid pooping either. Understand that there are natural functions that the human body must maintain in order to be healthy. Distortions are not good for your health.
Thanks for telling me. I’m a virgin so I’m safe haha. What about when a woman is already pregnant and she takes the pill to get rid of the baby a termination? Does that cause diseases? And also I heard myriad is genetics of cancer.
I knew birth control could effect infidelity but I didn’t know about this
I mean fertility sorry
I understand completely what you’re saying and it does make sense
@snuggems I don't know much about abortions but typically abortions are very bad for a mother's reproductive health. Once she aborts a baby, she is at increased risk of miscarriage or pregnancy problems with her next pregnancies. Doesn't must mean that all her next births would fail but just an increased risk. If she's had two abortions, she should be extremely careful about getting pregnant again.
It seems the only safe option is condoms
Where did you get this information from?
@snuggems Many people in other countries haven known about the effects of birth control on kids and negative effects of abortions on a mother's reproductive health for many decades already. Its just that americans are not informed about this because US is a capitalistic country. American Medical industry is a business where they profit by sell medicine at extremely high prices, which is the same reason why there are so many people without health insurance in this country. If people stopped buying birth control because they've been informed its bad for them, the medical industry will have no profit. For example, People say that sunscreen is the best for protection from skin cancer but in reality, shielding your face by wearing a spf sun hat would give you way more protection than sunscreen. It is all a sales tactic. People are more likely to run out of sunscreen than run out of spf hats. They want people to constantly buy sunscreen. Sunscreens do not filter out 100% of uv rays either. Hats do way more for you.
@snuggems Taking birth control once for a short period of time will probably not do too much harm. But for women who take it long term such as 4 months of more, it is best for them to wait a long period of time, anywhere from 2.5-5 years, for her body to slowly flush out some of the traces of birth control. Just because you stop taking it, it doesn't mean the traces of the pill is gone. There will be still amounts of it inside you.
Sorry to hear that. And you used an IUD too yes? I guess best to be safe. Will say, apologies, but my mind drifted to wondering how your hubby can fit into a condom... must be the size of a trash bag :)
@TCredo, Enough with the comments about my Husband...
I have an IUD for a goalie which hasn't failed me yet, nor have I been a petri dish. Geez, how's that for a bad mixed metaphor...
*They're clean*, not their clean. Typo. Sorry. Lol
Pull out can work but you gotta be good at it! For sure!
I’m also on bc
So what did you use instead of condom?
Nothing. First relationship was a pull out relationship. Second one I was protected and the third one I am as well as my man being fixed.
Lucky you lol.. At least you don't have the fear of falling pregnant
The one time “we used” a condom, he took it off half way through without me knowing... I know have 13 year old twins! 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
Lol really! Omg how funny.. So the condom theory just doesn't work
I guess you mean condom-free?
Why pull out method
I've never been a fan of pull out, push in feels so much better lol
@sensogal Psh, knocking on the gift that keeps on giving, for shame
