Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

This will sound ridiculous, but I'd appreciate reassurance...

Let's just say that I'm under 18. I'm not sexually active in the slightest (thank god) and I completely understand that what I am about to describe is extremely ridiculous. However, it's really ruining my life. I do have OCD and hypochondria, so just hang tight. Anyways, at the beginning of last month, I stayed with my two male teenaged cousins for a few days. I took a shower on one of those days. In the shower, to clean my vagina I used a clean washcloth and shower gel. As I type this I understand how odd this sounds, but I can't shake it from my thoughts. Before I went into the shower, my cousin had showered in there. Now, he has a habit of talking to himself out loud... And pretty clearly I heard him say something along the lines of "I came". My point is that I am afraid that he ejaculated and did not clean up. I didn't necessarily notice any sperm or anything, but then again as a virgin I have no clue. I am scared that I set down my washcloth in precum or sperm, and that the handle of the bodywash I used had precum or sperm onto it, which then made contact. Since I am not sexually active, I'm on no birth control of sorts nor do I have an IUD. Later that month, I got my period, as well as this month. Though I've read that you can still bleed and be pregnant, though mine was much more than spotting. I also took a home pregnancy test which came out negative, though I don't know whether or not I should trust it as it was expired, and I didn't take it in the morning as most sources suggest. I do feel like I have been urinating more lately, which is apparently a symptom. Though I can't say I've noticed anything else. I'm being hysterical. Sorry.
