You can always say no to sex. And you can always change your mind.
Having sex is a big decision. Just because you have had sex in the past does not mean you need to have sex again. Remember that you are the person in charge of your body, your mind and your heart, and you are the only one who can make sure the decisions you make are right for you.
The best way to ensure health for you and your partner is to make sure you really think about the situation before you take any action. Ask yourself:
- How will this affect me?
- How will it affect the way I view myself?
- How will it affect my relationship?
Once you’re comfortable with your answers, you will need to make sure your partner is on the same page. It can be a little uncomfortable at first to have open and honest communication on needs and expectations, but it will probably lead both of you to feel better about the situation in the end.
