    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I'm 21, recently moved across the country, and I am dating a solider in the army who's about to deploy.
    We have sex on average once a day. Sometimes more, Sometimes less. Sometimes we use a condom and sometimes we don't.
    Im taking loseasonique so I only get my period every three months. I'm horrible at remembering to take it. In one month I probably forget to take it 2 or 3 times. And Sometimes on those days we have sex without a condom.
    You would think I would be freaking out, but I'm not and I'm not sure why. My boyfriend and I aren't that serious and he will be gone for a year. We both want to get married and have kids, but we don't know if it will be with each other.
    I really don't know why I'm not worried, but at the same time, almost every day I think well maybe I should take a test. But i don't really have any sympotoms. I think the only symptom would be that I'm unusually hungry all the time. I don't think that's a very solid sign, sometimes that just happens.
    I'm not sure when signs would start to show or when I should take a test, especially since my cycle is 84 days.
    I guess my mind is just not at ease, don't know what to do or what to say to myself. I should obviously start to take the pill more seriously, but for some reason its just not on my mind
    I know I'm only 21 but is this whats its like when people say "your biological clock is ticking"?

    If you have questions get an inexpensive test, they are just as effective, and try it.
    Best of luck.
