It’s difficult for me to have sex
Sex is an important part of life for many people. And in truth, no one wants the added worry of leaking when they have sex, whether it is with a new partner, or someone they have been with long-term. You may even find yourself refusing sex or anxiously rushing through it, if you are concerned about what might happen during the act. Of course, this can severely affect your self-confidence and can make you feel unattractive or undesirable.
The important thing is not to blame yourself, and not to withdraw from your partner as a result. If you feel confident enough, you should try to share your worries. Remember – your healthcare professional can help you find a treatment that can improve your confidence and sex life!
