User :   Hi I have been having an on going problem since i started having sex at 17. I am extremely vaginally dry. It has come to the point where I usually try to use drugs or alcohol before sex so that it would be a little more of a better feeling by changing my emotional triggers in my head, but thats even failing me now. And for the last year i was on depoprovera birth control, or which i opted not to take my last shot because of dryness. My last straw was the other night while having sex and using a condom and lubricant i still could not stay wet and i hurt the outside of my vagina really bad. almost looks like a big pimple but just like raised skin but its a lump and it hurts. its from the dryness burn of him trying to go in and out until i eventually just said stop. What can i do to get some sexual pleasure without drugs or alcohol.
