When you are 18 years old, you will enter your first sexual relationship. It will be exciting, romantic, awkward at times, intimate, HOT (and as you get older it will get WEIRD…but you’ll be into that). For the first few months you’ll be at it constantly, and that free bag of condoms you acquired during that Sex Ed class at school, will quickly run out.
You’ll know that you should, but you don’t restock them often enough. Because of this, during the first few months there will be several occasions that you engage in unprotected sex.
If I’m being totally honest, sometimes even when there are condoms, you guys will skip them because you’re having that heat of the moment, ‘I can’t wait, I must have you this instant or I shall perish’ kind of sex.
It’s all fun and games until the day your period doesn’t come. At first, when it doesn’t show up, you figure that its normal for periods to be late and that you’ll give it another week before you panic. We always think that the thing we’re scared of will, in fact, never happen to us, because we are the magical chosen one, protected by some imaginary superpower that makes us immune to the realities of life.
