DEAR DEIDRE: MY girlfriend and I long to start a family but I don’t always climax during sex and I am worried sick it’s not going to happen.
She is 32 and I’m 35. We bought a house together two years ago and we are ready for a baby.
I work shifts as a hospital porter and my girlfriend works full-time in IT.
This means we are often ships that pass in the night and we don’t have the time to have sex very often.
I’m getting more and more worked up about it when I know we’ll be off together, just in case I can’t perform to the end.
What can I do?
DEIDRE SAYS: The first thing to do is try to relax. The stress of it all will be making things worse.
Getting hung up on fertility cycles and whether you will be able to perform takes the fun out of sex.
