Hi all! Anonymous account for obvious reasons.

Long story short: I moved a few countries over to pick up a seasonal park ranger posture. While here, I met a cute conservation officer, we really hit it off, and on our first date we had drinks, hooked up, and he came inside of me( we were both drunk and in the heat of the moment. No protection, Im not currently on birth control. Absolutely stupid, I know. Aghhh .) This was Thursday, May 27 th. I didn’t realize that he came inside of me until a week later.

Fast forward to this weekend. I’m a couple of weeks late for my period, and I decide to take a pregnancy test on Saturday, June 6th. It demonstrates as negative. A couple of days later on June 8th, I take another one that depicts as positive. I’ve take three more and all show as positive.

I reached out to him as soon as possible and he’s been very supportive of my decision and will do whatever is necessary to make sure I’m comfortable. I’m scheduled to have this taken care of in a little under two weeks. With my career objectives, I simply can’t have this sort of thing happen.

I feel extremely anxious and also alone. I’m afraid to tell my parents and also my best friends. I’ve just moved to this new state a couple of months ago and don’t know anyone other than my coworkers.

I’m curious though – I’m extremely surprised that the pregnancy test was able to detect that I was pregnant less than two weeks after having unprotected sex. Is this normal?

What are some things that I can do to induce myself comfy after I have taken my second set of pills? What can I expect as far as the pain goes?

I do appreciate your time reading through this and calming my nerves. This doesn’t even feel real to me right now.

Edit: YOU GUYS. THANK YOU !!! I frantically typed this out over my lunch and have come back to SO many astonishing commentaries !! When I have a little more time I will go through and read everything! Thank you for being the astounding, supportive community of women that “youre ever” !!!

Edit 2: Got home from run, decompressed, checked this thread and also my messages. I’m seriously floored at how many of you took the time to send me a kind word – I cannot expressed appreciation for enough. You guys, this really means the world to me. I’m reading through every commentary and message and I feel a lot more relieved. Also empowered by my decision!

In case you were curious, I’m really lucky in that the guy this is happening with still wants to be with me after all of this. He checks in with me often. He says he’ll be with me when it passes. We don’t know each other very well( only like a month ?), but it’s very nice of him to be so supportive.

Again, expressed appreciation for from the bottom of my heart. You’re all really wonderful

I started my period when I was 12 and I’m 42 now. Here are some things I’ve learned. I hope it’s helpful to someone. This is just my experience and my view, and I know not everyone will be able to follow this advice because of their life circumstances. If anyone else has any tips I’d love to hear them.

If over-the-counter analgesics are not enough to build your periods pain-free, talk to a doctor- more than one if need be. When I was young, doctors told me that period ache was part of being a woman. I wish I’d told them that treating pain is part of being a doctor. It wasn’t until I was 27 that I was prescribed proper pain relief – first of all Mefenamic Acid and now Naproxen( I’m in the UK ). If I take them at the right time, my periods can be almost pain-free. Stress creates tension in the body, which can worsen pain. My period pain is a very sensitive barometer of how stressed I am, e.g. my pain is always worse if I’m at work rather than at home in bed. The day I move city I had some of the worst period pain of my life, and sometimes if I feel myself get emphasized about something, I can feel my period ache getting worse at the same time. If you get bad period pain, it might be worth thinking about what you can do to stimulate your life less stressful or even stress-free. Everyone’s different but here were some of the things I did to reduce my stress: operating, meditation, working part-time, working from home, moving to the countryside, having therapy. Prepare for your period. This is an easy way to take some of the hassle out of periods. Devote a drawer or shelf to period paraphernalia and make sure you always have plenty of painkillers, tampons/ sanitary towels, gasps, heat pads, chocolate, publications- whatever you need to get through it. If you know your period is due, sleep on a towel for a couple of nights- having to wash your sheets is going to make you resent your period even more. If your period is regular and painful, keep your diary as clear as possible for the days when you are likely to be in pain. When you’re in pain, you need to take care of yourself. It doesn’t matter that it’s “just” your period, that it happens every month, that some other women’s periods are easy. A body in pain needs care. If you want to cancel social schemes, do it- no remorse, you are in pain. I’ve called in sick to every undertaking I’ve ever had because of period pain and my directors have only ever been sympathetic. I’m in the UK and I know some countries are less tolerant of sick leave, but if your administrator wants you to work when you’re in pain( which will probably make your ache worse) think about whether you want to work for them. If you live with someone and it feels appropriate, ask them to help you: to bring you a hot beverage or a hot water bottle or to construct dinner. It’s usually said that pain x resistance= suffering. In other words, the more we defy our ache, the more we suffer. I agree with this because I experience it every month with my period. If I tense up against my ache, get angry with it, hate it, try to push it away, thrash around, scream and shout, it stimulates the pain much worse. If I’m able to stop resisting it and relax my body, the pain lessens. If I’m able to take it one step further and embrace the pain( so, the opposite of resisting) it mitigates even more. By embracing it I mean that I imagine the pain like a guest that I’m welcoming and espousing. It sounds odd but it’s a well-known method of pain management – it’s just very hard to do. There is still a lot of taboo and secrecy around periods, which makes having a period endlessly harder. Try being honest with people when you cancel plans/ call in sick and say it’s because of your period, rather than constructing something up. If people hear it enough times from enough people it will stop being taboo and we can all relax a little more instead of having to pretend that periods don’t exist. PMS( mood swingings and other symptoms in the week or two before your period) can also be exacerbated by stress. My personal experience is that hormones+ stress= PMS. If you experience bad PMS and you feel your moods are out of control, again it might be worth looking into ways to reduce stress in your life. I be applicable to get extreme PMS, because I was extremely stressed, and since I stimulated the changes listed below I rarely experience PMS, and if I do I can usually pinpoint what’s stressing me. Remember you don’t have to have a high-powered task or seven kids to be stressed- some of us find ordinary life very stressful. Periods are crap but we are to be able to teach us a lot about self-care. Every month our period challenges us to take care of ourselves- can we do it? Can we admit that we’re suffering and let ourselves rest? Can we set ourselves first, even for just a few days? Can we be honest with people and ask for help? Self-care is extremely difficult for some of us, but it’s one of the most important living abilities we can learn.

Ok not exactly the same but women in Liberia organized a sexuality strike which played a part in ending a civil war and also electing the first female chairwoman there.

Politics is about power and fund. A plenty of these dating apps are publicly traded companies and women are their biggest asset. Texas is a big market. Delete your apps. Also why should you risk being on there when some sneak could assault you and you can’t get medical care without someone putting a bounty on you.

Edit: DELETE YOUR PROFILES FIRST!
