Hy whenever I have sex with my boyfriend using a condom it is very painful always but whenever we have sex without using a condom it doesnt hurt at all but I am afraid of having sex without using a condom because I might fall pregnant

Hi Springster, thanks for reaching out to us. You are completely right to be concerned about having sex without a condom. Sex with a condom will not only protect you from pregnancy, but you'll also be protected from contracting STI's such as herpes or HIV/AIDS. It could be that you are allergic to specific types of condoms (maybe the ones that are made from latex/rubber). If you are allergic to latex, you can get non-latex condoms at your nearest pharmacy. However, to be sure, we recommend that you visit your nearest doctor or clinic for a consultation about what could be wrong.

Hi Springster, thank you for reaching out to us with your question. It might be difficult around the first time and if you are struggling feel free to use some lubrication which you can purchase at any pharmacy/drug-store. If you are still super concerned, you can go visit a doctor to consult.

Hey Springster, thanks for sharing. If you feel your sexual relationship with your partner is safe, consensual and fun then this is great. Unfortunately, many women (and men) who are in a sexual relationship feel like they have to have sex with their partner any single time their partner wants to. This is not true. A healthy sexual relationship involves having choices in any situation and you have a choice to say no to sex if they do not respect your wish to use a condom even when you are in a sexual relationship with someone. A partner who respects you should have your best interests when it comes to things like sex. We also think it would be wise to visit your nearest clinic or doctor to check your status. If you do plan on having sex with again, feel free to explain to him that you want to use a condom to prevent STIs and pregnancy. If he doesn't accept this, then you might want to rethink your relationship with him. We trust you to do what's best for you. All the best Springster!

Hi Atlegang23, unfortunately, genital herpes is incurable, but you can go for treatment at your nearest doctor or local clinic to lessen the severity of your symptoms.

Hey Springster, thanks for your question! It could be something as simple as bad timing, women fall pregnant more easily when they are ovulating. But if you aren't ready to have a baby yet make sure you use contraception, for example the pill, IUD and/or a condom. Check out this Springster article to help you decide what contraception would work best for you: http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-body/choosing-contraceptive/ If you're worried you should also probably visit your nearest clinic or doctor for a check up. You can also use a home pregnancy test which you get from a supermarket. We hope this helps Springster.

Hi, I am 18 years old and I've start having sex with my Boyfriend who is 20 years old. We have been dating for six months now. The problem is that every time when I visit him he always wants us to have sex. There was a time when I was coming back from school and he wanted to see me. At that time I was very exhausted but I did go see him anyway...so I went to his house and then we layed down on his be then we stated kissing and then the next thing he's on top of me kissing my neck then I told him that I'm tired then he started complaining about how I don't satisfy him in bed...so he forced me into having sex with him...at that point I started crying then he stopped what ever he was doing...was he being selfish in a way by trying to force me to have sex with him know that I'm exhausted?

Hi candy_licious_7nt, Thank you for sharing your story. It was very brave of you to do this. You should only have sex when you want to and are able give your consent. No one should ever pressure you into having sex and your partner should respect your decision. It can often really help to speak to a trusted adult, have you thought about speaking to an aunt, old sibling, school counselor? Childline SA can also provide you with support.

Contact them if you are scared, feel alone and if something is happening to you, or someone you know. They are here to help you!

Hey Tianàh, we think the best thing for you to do is to communicate to your boyfriend and tell him what makes you feel good. Communication and honesty is always the most important thing when it comes to relationships and sex.
