"Is there any way to prevent a tear in or outside the vagina during sex?"

Women may experience tearing if the vagina is too dry. This can be from a decrease in normal vaginal secretions or from condom use. Try a water soluble lubricant, like Astroglide or KY. Do not use Vaseline or any petroleum based lubricant. Additionally, sexual foreplay may help increase normal vaginal secretions.

Lastly, if you are engaging in rough sex, talk to your partner about boundaries. 

Hope this helps.

"I think we’re too young for sex. What should I do?"

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!

Use condoms to help protect yourself and your partner from sexually transmitted infections!
Let’s build each other up instead of tearing each other down.
