I f you have ruled out any medical conditions, then I would suggest any silicone based lubes. They have much more lasting power that water based ones. You can find them at any pharmacy and at walmart. But lets just hope that you aren't allergic to silicone. Hope all ends well. Good luck!View Thread
You may want to ask him if he wants to be in a serious relationship or a committed relationship prior to sex, i.e. marriage. He may not be being totally honest with you in that regards. Is he a religious person? What kind of positive or negative relationship examples did/does he have in his life? He could be nervous about his own inadequacies. there's a TON of things that could be going on. You both just need to talk it out. He may be afraid to be totally honest if he thinks he may lose you, especially if you are pressuring him about sex. Is sex really that important to you or is the relationship more important? Maybe he just needs some reassurance that if he want to wait a bit more before you both take that step then it is okay with you.View Thread
There could be a variety of medical and physiological things going on. Endometriosis could be an issue, but that can only be found with exploritory surgery, even then, it comes back. How is her menstration period? Is it extremely painful? As far as lubes go, try regular olive oil(not extra virgin). It's inexpensive and can be found at any grocery store(suggested by gyn). Also, prior to intercourse, are you "loosening" her up with your fingers? When you lube up, are you using it on her and you? There's alot of guesswork going on here as far as what we can assume you are doing to get her ready.View Thread
If you had a great time with just the two of you, then it may just be the fact of being home that is getting in the way. I know that is an issue and if you just "have fun" when you are away it can get expensive. There may be an issue with being at home that is getting in the way. Who does the most work at home? Is it shared resposibilities? Some women carry the burden of "keeping the house" as just their responsibility when it really should be shared. Some women just feel that their job at home is never done and that there is ALWAYS something to do. That can be very tiring and very depressing. That may be your issue. You may want to put forth more effort helping around the house and with the kids if you aren't already. just showing that you are both in this together can work wonders. Also, she may have to be reminded that Rome wasn't built in a day and that she needs to take time to relax and let go of the house at least once in a while. She's going to tire herself out trying to keep the house immaculate, especially with kids around. Try giving her a day off with chores and the kids and tell her to give you the list of what she usually does and then you do it. You may not be able to do it as well as she does but the attempt will be appreciated. You could also be trying to hard to have "sex" with her and not enough "romance". Women are more mental than us guys. Hope that this helps some.View Thread
I agree. Both of them need therapy. When you don't get along with a spouse, there is really only two ways to go in order to have some form of happiness, therapy or divorce. Therapy if you really want to get back on track and divorce if you just can't deal and want to move on. Those are the only real options.View Thread
I have a friend that suffers from the same problem with BCs. Her doctor told her that the BCs were necessary for her particular condition(a little different from what you described). He told her to take some over the counter pills called L-Arginine to possibly counter the effects of the BC pill as far as sex drive goes. Haven't heard if it has worked, though.....View Thread
I've heard that antibiotics lower the effectiveness of birth control pills. Is this true? My wife is on a 91 day birth control pill(seasonale) but she was taking antibiotic meds and we got into it and didn't take extra care unfortunately. She's in week 10 of her pills and just wanted to know if we should be concerned and should look into gettin Plan B or something of that sort.View Thread
