Oh, and if you do get an IUD- it will hurt, like really really bad cramps. Take two Robaxacets (muscle relaxants plus advil) and it'll be waaaaay better :) It stops the uterine muscles from clenching as much.

A lot of doctors won't insert a Mirena IUD in women who haven't had kids- just keep asking around until you find one who *does*. I had one put in at 21 (no kids) and it's fabulous! I had less cramping than before and I don't get a period at all.
Also, please only listen to your doctor about the objective statistics on all BC failure and risk rates. The internets are full of horror stories for every method, mainly because the many people who are quite happy with whatever they have don't feel the need to post rants about it on their blogs :)
And yes, always use condoms.

@ 20, 32:
If you aren't a regular reader of the Economist you might read it as ragging on them for being 'effeminate', but that isn't so.
They are UK-based publication, with a writing style that is soundly rooted in the early 1900s. (I think) their choice of words more likely reflects their opinion of the students' immaturity and lack of critical thinking ability.

Also, OP, I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you find the same happiness again.
And I agree with seandr- Ms. Kim and Mr. MA seem like pretty awesome folks!

gah! I hate it when I do that. Anyhoo:

Thank you OP and everyone in the comments who wrote about their happy/hot monogamous relationships.
My SO and I haven't been together long, but when I first read about the whole concept of 'monogamish', it was a revelation- we could have variety without being CPsOS or divorcing!
And reading about people who are monogamous and happy with their sexytimes has also been a revelation- monogamy doesn't have to be like my parents, who have a happy marriage, but have slept in different beds for most of my life.
So thank you for sharing. It isn't boring or old news to all of us :)

@1 Herpes (cold sores being the polite term for oral herpes) is most DEFINITELY easily communicable, even when one cannot see them.
(and yes, most people carry the virus already, but that doesn't mean they'll be sanguine about developing sores on their lady/man parts where they previously had none)

Ankylosaur-that's the most incisive comment about the problem with this debate that I've read, anywhere.

The middle paragraph is getting printed out and going on my wall. Thank-you!
