Q. Hi I’m 18 years old and never had sex before and my and boyfriend and I are about to do the deed but I’m nervous. Is that normal. And also I’m worried how it may feel and I’m worried it might hurt so and idk what to do.
A. All of those worries are normal. Talk to your partner about them and “do the deed” when you are ready. Couple of things to consider:
If you do not want to get pregnant you need to find out what form of birth control/contraception is right for you. Also, you want to protect yourself from a (sexually transmitted infection) . Using condoms will prevent sexually transmitted infections. If your partner has been sexually active before he can get tested to make sure he does not have an infection.
Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to get a birth control method that is right for you. Corner Health is doing phone visits during the Corona epidemic.
