From Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom:

When my boyfriend and I have sex will I be okay? I know people with diabetes need energy if they have like exercise, but I was just wondering if I'll collapse or something. I know it sounds a bit weird, but it has been bothering me.


There is no reason why having sex with your boyfriend should bring about any immediate or long term change in your diabetes control, provided, that is, that you continue to look after yourself carefully.
