It is very hard to tell boy friend about it. I don't want to ruin our relationship if I ask him to use the condom. What would be a better way to say that?

Latex barriers, such as condoms, really are the best protection from STIs and very good protection from pregnancy.

Honestly, if you feel like your partner would deeply resent you asking for a condom, he's not a good partner for you. Good partners want to keep each other safe, not put them at risk for STIs and pregnancy.

If you're wondering about how to bring it up with him, you can simply say that *you* are the person most at risk for pregnancy and you want to protect yourself against STIs as well, and condoms are a great way to do that all at once.
