What’s important is that you don’t try to cope without your inhaler if you notice symptoms.
Not using your inhaler means symptoms may get worse, which you may find more embarrassing – or may mean you have to cut the date short and go home early.
Simply saying you might need to use your reliever inhaler or you may need to change to a different position can really take the pressure off.
Even if you’ve been seeing your partner for a while, it’s good to talk frankly about how asthma sometimes affects you during sex if you’ve never mentioned it before.
And even if you’ve been with someone for a while, you may still feel under pressure and worry that you won’t be able to enjoy yourself fully because of your asthma.
