i am 27weeks pregnant, (i no this makes a difference on what i can use).
i have been rather sore since i became pregnant, but now every time me and my husband has sex, i have a very sore burning sensation. it feels as if my virginia swells up like a balloon and gets really hot.
this also may relate that it hurts my husband too, his penis is always very red and sore and sometimes, sex cuts him too.
we have both been using anti-septic cream since this has been happening, because i am un-sure what i can use during pregnacy.
i asked my doctor about this and he said its nothing to worry about, its just because of my hormones. but this didnt really help and that may explain it for me but why is it happening to my husband aswell in that case.
any suggestions would be gratefully appitated,
all i want to no is how to make the pain stop.
When you are pregnant, everything changes. Your genitals swell up and pressure on your vagina and other parts change. Heat and humidity build up is normal. It is almost as ifyou are super aroused the whole time. There are a lot of blood flowing to that area, causing engorgement and heat, and intercourse makes that worse.
Most couples will continue with intercourse until it gets uncomfortable. And it is almost guaranteed to get uncomfortable at some stage. Switch to other forms of sex play - oral sex, hand sex, kissing and massage. Some couples even find anal sex much easier and satisfying during this time.
You can try to stay dry and cool to see if it will combat it. Without sounding gross, sit so that your genitals air out, wash only withl lukewarm water and your fingers there, avoid warm and tight pants, go without panties when it is safe to do so.
Use an ice pack (wrapped in cloth to prevent ice burns) to cool down. Limit the intercourse part of sex to the minimum amount of time. Get your orgasm some other way.
