I have been married for 6 months. Before we got married, my husband and I had an excellent sex life. Now, we barely have one at all. I find him very attractive, but no matter what we do I can't seem to get aroused, which makes it painful to have sex. I don't know what to do and its damaging our relationship. Any advice would be very helpful. Thank you
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. I can understand the pain and agony youâre going through. Prolonging the foreplay should definitely help you. It tends to ensure a good production of vaginal juices which ply a very important role as a lubricant and this facilitates a painless sexual intercourse. Stimulation of the clitoris also facilitates production of vaginal juices. You can always ask your partner to do it for you and this should definitely help. One needs to have a regular sexual relationship for a good personal relationship. You can also use water based lubricants. If the symptoms persist then please consult a gynecologist.
