    Hey guys, on the note of breast checks… I actually found this really cool Breast Awareness Hanger over at the Courageous Ladies website. I live in a share-house with two other girls so I’m going to hang it on our bathroom door 🙂

    Hey @yogigirl, awesome you had this great experience! I would definitely say I feel confident in my communicating my needs during sex, and would even go so far as to say this is an essential part of good sex. Communication is key 🙂

    Hey @honeypot , I have had a similar ghosting experience to you and it sucks!

    The Love etc. podcast did an episode on ghosting a few weeks ago (definitely worth a listen), and broke ghosting down into different tiers:
    – Lightweight ghost: talking to someone on a dating app regularly for a week or so, and all of a sudden decide to stop replying
    – Midweight ghost: going on a date with someone and then deciding not to respond to communication following this
    – Heavyweight ghost: full on dating, for months even, and ghost them out of nowhere

    I think because so much of our communication does happen in the digital world, it can often make it easier for a ghost. And whilst it would obviously be way more brutal to be heavyweight ghosted than middle weight ghosted, I agree with both of these levels that you should communicate that you’re not interested rather than just disappearing.

    @yogigirl glad you made that speedy exit! Unfortunately on my worst first date experience, I was the drunk one… I let my nerves get the better of me and had one too many wines (which I ended up knocking over and completely spilling on myself). To make matters worse – I had driven myself there, but being as tipsy as I was, I had to get the man I had just met on this hinge date to drive me home and collect my car the next day. Woops!

    I’ve just joined this forum so thought I would weigh in on my experience as a consumer of Kin Fertility’s contraceptive delivery service 🙂

    I initially began using this service in around March/April. My main motivator for this was as you identified @aunt_flo , I didn’t really want to have to go and sit in my GP’s waiting room to get a script for the same pill I’d been taking for nearly 5 years! As someone who has been on a contraceptive pill that works super well with my body for an extended period of time, it was a really straightforward process to go through the online questionnaire for Kin’s doctors to review and write me a script. I’m not sure how this process would go for someone who was looking to actually start on a new contraceptive though, as when I first started taking the pill, I initially had a face-to-face discussion with my GP which I found to be really helpful in looking at all my options and allowing me to raise any questions or concerns I had.

    The other thing I really like about Kin is that they automatically send me my repeats, so I don’t get caught running out of my pills because I’ve forgotten to go and get my script filled.

    As for the $55 subscription fee @stephaniaaaah, whilst this definitely wasn’t ideal, I justified this by thinking of costs I was saving by not going to the doctor e.g. paying gap fees for doctors who do not bulk bill, travel costs associated with going to the doctor as well as needing to take time off work to go. Whilst it is probably still more costly to use Kin’s service, the convenience factor for me is just too appealing. Hopefully with e-health really on the rise, we see more and more of this accessible forms of reproductive health at reduced prices though (fingers crossed).
