Dear Experts: My girlfriend wants to have sex, but I think we’re too young (I’m 15, she’s 14.) We’ve been together since we were kids and we’ve been in a relationship for the last 4 years. What should I do?
You are a very wise person. There are lots of reasons to wait and your age is one of them. Do you have a trusted adult that you can talk to? If so, both of you should sit down and talk about your relationship and your future. It is important to find out why she feels that she needs to have sex and to give her information on why she might choose to delay having sex.
If there is no one you feel you can talk to, encourage her to make an appointment with a health care provider who can provide information in a confidential setting.
Hope this helps!
