Hi Ladies, Sex with my husband recently was a bit of a disaster. It is just too painful, I haven't been using a vibrator or anything to keep the area open, which is a bit of a shame, so I don't know what to do now, I guess I will just have to do it!! I just find the whole idea such a drag, and yet it is important especially as my husband is six foot four and not small in any area, so I should have been doing that really. I don't know, I have other health issues that I am dealing with, and I just let that slide really.
Also, sex now has to be planned, and has to be slow, careful, more cautious.....its hard to imagine that I will never be able to have spontaneous, hot sex again. Fortunately, my husband is very understanding, (but then so am I, as he is certainly not perfect) so that is a plus, as I know for some women, this can put a terrible strain on their relationship. Because it is not just the mechanics of sex, it is the intimacy, closeness, that partners feel when making love, it's what binds relationships together, and when that disappears, its hard to adjust, and hard to adjust to a new and different way of making love. And, a different way of being with your partner, who goes from being your lover to more like your best friend that you hang out with...
So I am feeling like I can't be bothered to have sex anymore, knowing that it will cause me such pain and discomfort...I have not ruled out the possibility of having the Mona Lisa Touch some time next year, but at the moment I want to wait and see how this treatment is working before going ahead with it.
