Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have a lot of questions about sex. When I talk to my mom about it, the questions that I really want to know about I'm too embarrassed to ask. I once tried asking my mom about birth control and she blew up. How can I talk to my mom when I'm so embarrassed?

Dear Barbara,

You have expressed yourself very well in your letter. Why don’t you write your mom a note? Explain to your mom you have a lot of curiosity and want to talk with her about some sensitive topics, but you feel embarrassed. Ask her to make a special time with you. You might even suggest going out to lunch or even taking a walk around your neighborhood or at a local park. Chances are you will find you will both feel more comfortable when you set time aside for this type of conversation. You might even use this first time together for ideas on how you can communicate about sensitive topics. Once you are both comfortable “chatting” you can move onto more personal topics.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

It depends on how close you are with your mom. If you two are on good terms, just casually bring it up. Remember that she was your age once and went through the exact same thing. Don't sweat it!
