So, my new gyno is suggesting I get on the pill because my boyfriend and I are sexually active.
However, I've only tried being on the pill a few times (no more than 3-4 weeks each time, I am horrible at remembering to take it every day) in the past 4 years that I've been sexually active - and most of the time I didn't use any sort of method for contraception. Irresponsible and stupid, I know. I've heard the lecture many times before.
I'm 19, and I'm not TTC - but I just know that something is wrong.. how should I go about asking my doctor about fertility? I just feel like an idiot asking her.
And I've been extremely sexually active with my boyfriend, so I don't understand how I could miss the 24-hour period that I could possibly be ovulating, especially if sperm can live inside of you for 4-5 days.
My boyfriend and I have discussed the possibility of having a baby (he's almost 21) - and it would be far from the end of the world if I were to end up pregnant, and he would be there to support me all the way. So I'm not worried about any aspect of the possibility of having a baby.
Any comments/advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
