Had Never Had Sexual Relations Or Dating At The Age Of 26?
Hello, my name is Evan. I am 26 years old, I have never dated / had sex, I want to ask what is the impact?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There is nothing wrong with you having never had sex or dating at the age of 26. Of course, the decision to date and have sex is a human right. Dating and having sex is not something you must do in life. From the medical side itself, this does not necessarily cause certain negative effects, especially if you are a man. However, if you are a woman, then age should be a consideration to determine when you should get married. Because, after the age of more than 35 years, female fertility will decrease, so that the potential for pregnancy with a normal fetus will be even smaller.
Provided that you still have a normal interest in the opposite sex, your condition does not need to worry too much. It is possible that you have never dated or had sex, purely because you have not placed it in the priorities in your life, for example when you are focused on studying, pursuing a career, happy parents, and so on. Later, when you have been able to achieve what you expect, and a sense of desire arises in your heart to build a married life, then start looking for a partner in a good way.
However, if you are worried about your condition is the possibility that you do not have a clear sexual orientation, then you can consult this matter directly with your nearest doctor or psychiatric specialist in order to find the best solution.
I hope this helps.
