Dear BeingGirl Experts, I started having sex a month ago, but I only did it twice. I had a scare. Should I stop or not? Arlene --- Dear Arlene, We hear often from girls who regret having had sexual intercourse. You have learned sex complicates things. It is such a giving of your self. A sexual relationship carries with it a lot of responsibilities and consequences you must be mature enough to manage. There is nothing wrong with you not continuing to have sex with your boyfriend. Explain to him you aren’t ready for this type of physical and emotional commitment. If he truly loves you he will understand. If he doesn’t understand then he doesn’t deserve you. There is a huge difference between wanting to have sex with the boy you like and actually having sex with the boy you like. It's normal to have these sexual feelings due to the increased hormones running through your body. Just because the feelings are normal doesn't mean you should act on them. Understand you do not have to continue having sex. Talk to mom or another trusted adult to help you through this decision and conversation with your boyfriend, if you are comfortable doing this. Good luck, Your BeingGirl Experts
