I had a talk with my mom about birth control - December 3rd 2019, 02:00 AM

I finally talked with my mom about getting on some form of birth control. I wasn't sure what to expect, especially after the TALK we had last year, but my mom was basically understanding and okay with it.

She did ask if I was having sex with my current boyfriend, I told her no. Not sure why I lied to her about this but I did. My mom still thinks I have only been with 1 boy, in all honesty I have been with 3 and I was having sex with my current boyfriend back in July back when he was just a secret boyfriend.

Telling the truth on here I'll say that I briefly had unprotected sex on Friday. It's just something that happened, I don't know why. Maybe because I did it with my other boyfriend and I felt like I should with my current one??? Or maybe I just feel like I should because he might find some other girl??? He does go to another high school, and that does worry me.

BUT I will get on birth control soon and I did talk with my mom about it. Lied about some stuff, but I did the hardest part in asking for some help.

Did he ejaculate inside you? Each time you do this unprotected your running a risk. Even if your sure he is clean and I hope he is.... Get on BC fast for peace of mind

I think that should be discussed in every family as early as it can be possible, just to be sure that your kid will protect himself, from STD or from an unexpected pregnancy, as well that kind of discussion's should be in school, like Sexual Education.

You lied to your mother, but I think she understood everything, be careful with unprotected sexual intercourse, this is fraught with consequences

Hi there,

You can't change what has already happened. But there are a few pointers I feel you should have in mind:

1) It's not too late to speak with your mother. It appears that you are otherwise honest and open with her, considering you have had the talk with her and she has understood your need to use protection. I'd say you can let her know what has recently happened, just so you can remove that burden off your chest and even get some advice from her.

2) Be careful about unprotected sex. While one thing does let on to another when you are young and in a relationship, you need to be careful because there is always the risk of pregnancy, even if you aren't ovulating (because sperms can stay in your body for a few days, and there is a risk of becoming pregnant). Always use protection.

3) Don't feel obliged to have sex just to make your boyfriend stay with you. Yes, he does go to another school, but still, that doesn't mean that you should necessarily get intimate with him in order to keep him attached to you. A guy can regardless cheat if he wanted to, even if his current girlfriend has had sex with him. Rather, spend your time with him doing other pursuits, maybe go hiking or enrol in a hobby class together because time spent together with a special someone is more memorable than sex, which can be indulged in with anyone.

Take care! And let me know if you have any more concerns

Hello there,

As the above users mentioned, honesty is the best policy but you can't change what was said. Protection is also important to ensure a low risk of pregnancy or contracting an STI. I agree with Mallika with not feeling pressured to have sex with your boyfriend just because he goes to another school.

I hope I helped and if you need anything, my inbox is always open.
