I have been having unprotected sex for around 4 years. It hasn't really crossed my mind before as I've not been ready, but has recently starting to play on my mind as my partner and I have been talking about children the past few weeks.
I started my period when I was 11, for the first couple of years I was irregular. Went on the contraceptive pill when I was around 15 still having irregular periods. Changed to the contraceptive injection when I was around 17. But as far as I remember I stopped after several month as I was bleeding continuously for a long period of time. Had enough of putting my body through different cycles so just used condoms now and then - still suffering with irregular periods.
My periods started to get regular around 18 months ago at the age of 22, which was a shock to the body. Have suffered with very heavy periods but nothing out of the ordinary. I'm aware I have a period every month but to be honest I don't keep track of persist dates. We have sexual intercourse on a regular basis. I just don't understand how I've not been caught pregnant? Especially after all this time of unprotected sex.
Do you think I should worry? Seek medical advice?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
