when is the right time to start having sex again.

Feb 12, 2010

I'm not sure my wife is afaid of me now that i'm positive,the last time we had sex was on our anniversary(10/7/09)sence the we have not even close to having it again,so when is the right time to start haveing it.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Communication and honesty are key. If you haven't had nookie since 10/7/09, something is up! (so to speak). Try having a very honest discussion with your wife addressing her potential fears. Couples counseling may be necessary if communication between the two of you is not good. Encourage your wife to make a list of questions regarding her fears and then have her meet with your HIV specialist. He may well be able to reassure her.

So when is the right time to start having sex? As soon as both you and your wife are comfortable doing so!

Good luck.
