Suggest a lubricant for painless intercourse

default
Posted on Mon, 9 May 2016
Question: Hi -
I am TTC from almost a year. I have normal cycle of 28-30 days. I am taking pre-natal supplement. we are meeting on every other day from 5th day till 20th day of every cycle.
We go through foreplay but for most of the times for some reason there is not enough lubrication for smooth experience. I have been using pre-seed as lubricant from last 5 months, it helps with the friction but with no success.
I did check with gyne,and told her all the details, all she said is that is okie. she did not offer any advice or suggestion or any kind of medical test to find out anomalies if any.
Is that the reason we are not having any success ? is there anything that I can try for it ?

From last month I have started to take "Fertile CM" table . This I have found from my own re-search and out of desperation. it recommends to take 3 a day. I am not that regular but I do some improvement on the Cervical Fluid.

Thanks for all the help!

Brief Answer:
Lack of enough foreplay or narrow opening

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Narrow vaginal opening could be one of the reasons if not inadequate foreplay.

You can opt for surgery to increase size of vaginal opening.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Vaginal opening does not narrow down with age. But it atrophies ( shrinks) slowly.

These 2 need not be related

Does the vag openings narrows down with age ? Are these two interalted ?

do you recommend ovulation meds ?

my insurance does not cover infertility treatment, so I plan to visit my home county and give it a shot there. meanwhile I have consulted with another doc and she recommended ovulation meds like oviduct or ubiphene to me start with.
I would like an second opinion on it.

Brief Answer:
Ovulation induction medicines can be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

No. Vaginal opening does not narrow down with age but there is vaginal atrophy with age meaning decreased lubrication and shrinking of inner part of vagina.

These 2 are not interrelated.

ovulation medicines you have mentioned are good enough.

Please continue as per doctor's advice.
