Please go to your local Planned Parenthood office or other not-for-profit cliniques and have yourself checked out for std's, fertility problems, etc. While you're there, pick up some literature concerning birth control, and not only the type of birth control that you can use (i.e. condoms) but the information concerning feminine birth control. This information is vital in case of accidents (such as condoms breaking, etc.) so that you can prevent a pregnancy as well as protecting yourself from various diseases. It's less than $100 ($65 to be exact) at the North Texas Planned Parenthood chapter( http:\\www.ppnt.org ) to get a full STD exam...your costs may vary, but this is a small price to be certain that you are "clean" and well informed. They provide information concerning more interesting forms of male sterilization (snip snip, boys) as well as information into what a woman goes through so that you can further understand their trials. Remember, it's your right to enjoy your bodies, but it's your duty to take care of them. *Note* If you find a reason for your girlfriend/boyfriend/sexual partner to attend one, go with her/them. Do not stay at home, go to work, go to school, whatever. Go with her/them, there is no excuse for you not to go. These are very important times and this is a very emotional process for a young woman/general person to go through, and they need your support. This has been a public service announcement, that is all.
