Your sex life will improve.
Sex is hotter when you’re not worried about getting pregnant. And who doesn’t love turning up the heat in the bedroom. By the way, have you seen our weekly Frisky Friday sex tip emails?
Getting pregnant is easier than you think.
With all the infertility hype in the media, you’d think getting pregnant is hard to do. But for women in their twenties, it’s usually pretty easy. Like, really easy. It comes down to this: If you don’t actively plan NOT to have a baby, chances are, you’ll wind up having a baby.
You're worth it.
In your life, you get to make the rules, call the shots, and take command. Of everything. That includes your body. You can choose to have a baby now, later, or never. And if you already have kids, it’s okay to say “enough for now.” Doing what’s right for you is always a good option.

We trust that sexy brain of yours to post with good intentions. And we promise to respect your perspective, thoughts, insight, advice, humor, cheeky anecdotes, and tips. We’ll even indulge a healthy rant or two. But we must ask that you cite your source if you want to challenge any scientific or technical information on Bedsider. And please note: We will not tolerate abusive comments, racism, personal attacks, or bullying. That’s why we take our time to read every comment before it is posted. (That’s also why there’s some lag time before your comment shows up.) We greatly appreciate your presence here and welcome your participation 24/7/365. Just remember to be respectful and you’ll be good to go.
Oh! One more thing: We do our best to answer questions in a timely manner, but we can’t guarantee an immediate reply. (And we don’t answer questions that are already answered in the article you’re commenting on.) If you ask a question and need a response right now, we partner with San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI) to give you free, accurate, confidential info on sex and reproductive health. Their phone number is 415-989-SFSI (7374) and here are their hours. And if you have an urgent medical question, please contact your doctor or a local health center. We’re here to help you stay informed, but only a medical professional can advise you on personal health concerns.
