    Hi Ed120, welcome to ReachOut!

    Being able to openly communicate with your partner about sex is an important aspect of having a sexual relationship. If you suspect your boyfriend wants to have sex, you should talk to him about the things that make you unsure, and make sure you're both on the same page should you decide to progress your relationship. There's nothing at all wrong with not being ready! This fact sheet on some of the top sex myths girls hear has a great section on contraceptives, I hope you'll give it a read!

    We're here if you want to talk!

    You should ask yourself if you feel comfortable with having sex? Don't think about what he wants, you need to be sure your physically ready and emotional ready. If you feel comfortable with the idea then go ahead andtry it. But do not be afraid to say no halfway through it, and if your boyfriend cares for you he'll understand.

    I think I'm not ready yet. but he was having problems stopping himself, though it'll be our first time.

    ~thanks for the advice.

    My suggestion is to maybe ease of the sexual activity then or try things very slowly to see what you're comfortable with/ okay with. If he doesn't like that idea then he isn't the guy for you. Your bf should be willing to wait for as long as you want and not care.
