User :   the problem is i havent been able to penetrate inside too much as she starts complaining of the pain
Doctor :   There are various causes of pain as fear, anxiety, vaginismus( tight vagina), vaginitis (vaginal infection)
User :   she is quite well lubricated after foreplay - do i still need to have lubricating gels
Doctor :   Did you ever talk to her regarding this? Is she scared of intercourse?
User :   yes - she is fine - but somehow when i try to insert there is a restriction and i am not able to insert
Doctor :   Sometimes women have good lubrication but their vagina is tightened and you may require lubricants for it.
User :   she has had a polycystic test done also which was normal
User :   is K-Y jelly a good one?
Doctor :   The tests which she had undergone is for seeing the ovaries function as she had irregular periods and there is no corelation with it. Did you tell the gynaec about this problem?
Doctor :   Yes you can use KY jelly.
User :   ya i told her with of course lot of difficulty but she said the pain wud go if she is well lubricated
Doctor :   Due to your travelling job also you may not be having frequent intercourse and that can also be the reason.
User :   yes i am not and feel kind of worried
Doctor :   Was her vagina examined for any tightening or any other symptom?
User :   no
User :   but i am able to insert my finger slowly
Doctor :   Whenever you are together spend more of time having intercourse and do lot of foreplay and lubrication
User :   ok however when i perform oral on her - she gets exited and then kind of has shivers in her legs and feels weak - is this normal
Doctor :   It seems she is kind of scared, try inserting the finger slowly as much as you can and give her orgasm manually so that she is aroused
Doctor :   That means she is having orgasm.
Doctor :   It is fine
Doctor :   Also you can get her examined once by Gynaec to see if vaginal tightening is there
User :   can u suggest a good sexologist whom we can approach in XXXXXXXx- as i too kind of come fast some times even when performing oral
Doctor :   Have you followed what i said?
User :   yes doctor
Doctor :   Are you back?
