To safely stop using condoms within your relationship, you need to be able to talk openly and honestly with each other about why you want to do it, what the potential benefits and risks might be, the ground rules for sex inside and outside (if any) the relationship and how you’ll deal with any problems that may arise.

Take Action

Maintain clear and open communication about sex with each other and other people outside the relationship (if that’s what you’ve decided) and establish guidelines for dealing with any problems should they arise.
