So I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the TikTok video of the girl who goes to the bathroom just to wash her hands at 2 am. If you have though, you either know or have no clue what that video means. The video went viral, and I am glad it was seen by so many viewers because it is such a taboo topic.
When Mother Nature visits, it sometimes can be an unpleasant experience. Abdominal pain accompanied by headaches, nausea, and an emotional rollercoaster is not what everyone wants to experience. I dread getting my periods and the days leading up to it are the worse
I did not know about HPV until I was 15 years old. When I first heard of it, I thought it was something like shingles but for young people. Little did I know this was a virus that can be transmitted sexually.
A little over a month ago, I set up an appointment to get a pap smear or pap test. For those who do not know, a pap smear is a test women and vagina-owners get every few years to test for cervical cancer. It is recommended for women/vagina-owner to get tested starting at 21 years old.
During the time that I was with my boyfriend, I was considering some methods to prevent any unwanted surprises down the road. At the time, we had been using the condom for our birth control method, but we wanted to experience more pleasure whenever we were intimate. We took other birth control methods (such as withdrawal, spermicide, and the female condom) off the table immediately. After this, we came to the conclusion that I should head to my college health clinic and discuss more efficient methods.
