hello! i have both ocd and panic disorder. im on medicine for it, and i’ve noticed a huuuge difference in my mental health. however, there’s one thing i still struggle with : sex. i have a huge fear of pregnancy - despite the fact that i take protective medicine and am pretty cautious. im in a relationship, with a very understanding partner, but im still very unhappy knowing what’s holding me back is my ocd. any advice?

      i get this fear too. even when using protection. i’ve bought plan b that wasn’t needed multiple times. just try to remind yourself that if you are being cautious then that is enough. idk really how to handle it cause my sister got pregnant and so that’s how my fear started lol. but ya just know you are not alone and as long as you are being cautious i’m 99.9% sure you will be okay:)

        @jayyywayyy thank you for that! in the back of my head i know that’ll ill be okay, but at the same time it’s so hard to convince myself of it. for me, the reassurance is what’s most helpful, so thank you!
