Signs โ›”๏ธ You're Not Ready to Lose Your Virginity ๐Ÿ› for Girls Contemplating ๐Ÿ“ Doing the Deed ๐Ÿ“ ...

Sex is something completely normal and natural for us to crave๐Ÿ˜š There is a lot of pressure surrounding the idea of losing your virginity that it can be stressful. We like to say that youโ€™ll be able to tell when youโ€™re ready, but there are some signs you can look out for that can mean the time isnโ€™t right. Theyโ€™re at least something to think about!

1. You Havenโ€™t Thought about Birth Control

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Big one here โ€“ if you havenโ€™t thought about ๐Ÿค” or researched the best birth control methods for you, then you need to. This one is a must. You may be completely ready otherwise, but if you donโ€™t have a plan, then you might end up with an unwanted pregnancy.

2. You Havenโ€™t Thought about STDS or STIS

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This runs along the same vein as the first sign: you need to be aware๐Ÿ’กof all the risks that may occur from having sex and be as prepared and knowledgeable as possible. You donโ€™t want to end up with something just because you were unaware.

3. You Feel Pressured

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This is another big one. In todayโ€™s society it can seem like sex is a rite of passage that you need to accomplish by a certain date ๐Ÿ“† But you should only be having sex if you want to. If you feel like you just have to get it over with, then itโ€™s probably not the best time.

4. Youโ€™re Drunk๐Ÿป

(Your reaction) Thank you!

When it comes to having sex for the first time, you want to be completely with it. That means that when youโ€™re drunk (or theyโ€™re drunk) you should refrain from doing it until you have a clear mind and can say that you want it for sure.

5. It Freaks You out๐Ÿ˜ฐ

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Does the word sex make you shudder? Do you get anxiety thinking about it or have panic attacks? Sex can be a little nerve-wracking, but you shouldnโ€™t be in fits about it, so give it a little more time until it makes you more excited than scared.

6. You Think It Should Be Perfect๐Ÿ˜‡

(Your reaction) Thank you!

News flash: sex isnโ€™t like how you see it in the movies or on TV. Thereโ€™s usually not rose petals and bliss. It can definitely be enjoyable and it doesnโ€™t have to be awkward, but if you expect perfection, youโ€™ll most likely be disappointed.

7. It Goes against What You Believe๐Ÿ™…

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This sounds like a funny tip that should be obvious. But just because you want to wait doesnโ€™t mean itโ€™s always easy. Taking the time to evaluate where you stand on the subject and putting it into practice is a good step before just giving into temptation.

8. Your Partner Has Different Feelings

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Losing your virginity can be a big deal for some, and not for others. Being on the same page with the person youโ€™re having sex with can make things a lot easier. Also, if you want to be in a more serious relationship than they do, it can cause problems.

These are just a few things to think about before taking the step to have sex for the first time. The biggest ones we stress are to make sure youโ€™re being safe and that it is truly something that you want for yourself. Have fun and good luck!
