About 8 weeks ago I took an emergency contraception pill. Since then I have found that certain triggers, such as my period and drinking alcohol, cause me to have heart palpitations that last for a worryingly long time. Last night I was drinking with a friend and today I have had on and off heart palpitations for a few hours. The last time I started my period I had heart palpitations at night which were very noticeable and scared me. Sometimes I have the odd one palpitation which is relatively light and then my heart immediately goes back to normal.
I have read about the effects that hormonal changes can have on heart rate so I'm assuming that these palpitations are linked to the pill I took, as I have never had heart problems before and this is the only thing I have done differently. I want to avoid visiting a GP because I don't want to have to discuss this with my parents (I'm 20 and it's unlikely that I can visit a GP without them finding out). If I absolutely have to then I will.Are my palpitations caused by a hormonal imbalance triggered by the contraception pill? If so, how long will it take for my hormones to re-balance? Or could this be due to some other problem that I should have checked out?3 AnswersHeart Diseases9 months ago
I'm 19 and since the age of about 13 I've only been interested in music from the '60s, '70s and '80s. I absolutely hate modern music (not all music produced today, just popular stuff, although I can only think of two bands making music today who I like). Even the music produced now that I like has similar features to old music, which is why I like it.
In recent years I've also tried to change my wardrobe so that I only wear clothes that wouldn't look out of place in these decades.
I'm not inspired by any modern celebrities and only idolise and look up to people who were big in past decades.
A lot of people my age seem to be only interested in things that are prevalent today and seem to dismiss old fashioned things. As a result, I don't really feel I can connect with anyone and sometimes feel quite lonely in terms of not having anyone to share my interests with. I still socialise with people but we don't have a lot in common.
Do other people feel this way, or is this some sort of obsession I have?2 AnswersOther - Society & Culture2 years ago

I've been in a relationship with a guy for about 3 months now. Whenever we go out he always pays for my drinks but I feel like it's not fair on him always paying. I want to buy him drinks every now and then to show him that I'm not taking it for granted that he'll always pay. Would he be offended if I offered to pay for his drinks or would he appreciate it?3 AnswersSingles & Dating3 years ago

I feel really depressed for no reason and the world in general (the people who are in it) just p*sses me off. I want to moan at the type of people who annoy me but I know that that will probably just end in an everlasting argument and we will pointlessly be enemies until we leave school. How do I stop being so angry when I'm like this? Thanks2 AnswersMental Health7 years ago

If a guy you liked for about a year and a half (and he's not your boyfriend) forcefully fingered you when you were round his house and you didn't want to report him because you could get him excluded what would you do? Also, if you didn't want him to know that you liked him how would you have reacted? Would you think that he was just using you or that he likes you back? One last thing, why would he do something like that?
It happened about 8 months ago. For some reason I decided to forgive him and now we are still friends. I don't know if this was the right thing to do but it was easier to pretend that nothing happened. I am 14 now but I was 13 at the time, he's the same age as me. I told some of my friends because I didn't know what to do. They all said I should report him but I love him and I know that he's not really all bad. I want to talk to him about it to find out why he did it but there's never a good time. Apparently he said that he thought that I wanted him to do it because I didn't seem to be fighting back but it was impossible for me to move because he had me trapped. What should I say to him? Please help me to answer some of the questions I've asked.1 AnswerFriends7 years ago
