Make a Doctor's Appointment

Some insecurities can be resolved by talking to a health care professional. If your worries stem from the fact that sex is painful for you, for instance, it might be a medical issue. Someone can talk you through it, give you advice and might be able to fix it.

Lest you worry that your concern is utterly bizarre, rest assured that any health care professional has pretty much heard it all.

If you've noticed an unusual discharge or smell, or if you're having trouble getting erect, having an orgasm or staying lubricated, give your doctor a call. Either it's something he or she can help you with, or you'll get the reassurance that everything is just fine.
