A year and a half ago I was undecided for my religion, and having a girlfriend of over a year of course I would eventually have sex with her.
We aren’t together anymore and that’s okay but after a lot of experience in my life I really want to be a true catholic. But I’m worried that I won’t be able to convert to being a Catholic, and receive communion and all that. I’ve read that if you’ve committed a mortal sin then you must go to confession at the earliest chance possible to receive communion, but I also read you must be a confirmed catholic to go to confession? I’m just confused. In retrospect I feel horrible about having premarital sex, but I want to change my life for the better and I’m just worried I won’t be able to because of my past. Any help would be appreciated guys.
P.S: I have already decided to run away from premarital sex for a long time now it’s definitely for marriage only.
