I'm considering having sex with my boyfriend - we've been dating for over a year, and it'd be my first time having it. However, I'm really paranoid about getting pregnant, and I think that fear is what's holding me back.
Honestly my boyfriend isn't pushing me into anything - he said he's willing to wait as long as I need to feel comfortable, and to use condoms and/or other means of protection. I recently just started the birth control pill too. I know with both a condom and the pill, if used correctly, there is practically no chance of pregnancy, but I can't help but worry hahaha. I fear that the worry will stop us from having a good time.
I think basically what I'm asking is how to feel comfortable with having sex, and to not be too tense or worried?
I'd really appreciate any tips or suggestions.
