I'm a twenty-five-year-old virgin woman. I understand that this is sort of an anomaly nowadays, which makes it hard for me to get resources about the way my body functions and what my normal should be. I also wonder if there are many other women out there who face this dilemma, because virginity is often the choice of religious individuals, and yet people are waiting longer than ever to get married. I don't think there's any point in history to really compare this phenomenon to.
Now, I understand that this is just me being irresponsible for my health, but I've never been to an OBGYN (I'm probably not the only sexually unactive woman out there who has taken this type of medical doctor for granted). I've noticed, however, that my mood swings, weight gain, and acne start about a week before, yes, ovulation. What is going on with my body??? What other things should I look for? This is all one big question-mark for me. Thanks for your time!View Thread
