I was repeatedly abused as a young teenager (7 years ago) and told my boyfriend of over a year. He loves me and supports me, but our sex life has really suffered. He says it upsets him to know someone hurt me and he has trouble separating what we do from what he did to me. I do not have trouble with the distinction, but I don't know how to help him get over it. Any advice? He doesn't want to see a professional.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. You both need some sex therapy to move on this issue.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
