Brief Answer:
Relaxation, pain killer, lignocaine gel and sex counseling are useful

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern.

Many females like you suffer froms problem in sex life initially after marriage. Initially in some females until hymen is completely broken there is pain for 2-3 intercourse. Later on there will be no pain. Even in some females there is no pain at all with first attempt of sex. And many do not feel any hymen breaking as hymen is already broken before due to some strenuous activity or during playing sports.

First of all you need to relax yourself about sex life. You would be able to enjoy sex if you can control your apprehension with positive approach.

You can spare more time in foreplay so you would have enough lubrication which helps in preventing pain.

You can take pain killer medicine like diclofenac or ibuprofen before 2 hours of sex to prevent pain. Gradually you can reduce dose to half tablet after 4-5 intercourse. After initial experiences you will also learn that pain is pleasurable overall.

Even after such attempts you feel pain you can use lignocaine anaesthetic gel. It should be applied before sex. However it may affect orgasm also you may not have any feelings at all. Your husband may also feel difficulty in orgasm if lignocaine gel comes in contact with penis. Better that he use condom when you use lignocaine gel.
I suggest consulting gynecologist for lignocaine gel prescription. You should apply small amount to check sensitivity and allergy. In 2 hours no reaction (itching,swelling) is there you can use it safely.

Finally if you would not succeed at all better to consult some psychiatrist/sexologist with your husband for detail sex couple counselling and treatment.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.

Brief Answer:
yes lox is lignocaine gel, not at all painful

Detailed Answer:

Lox gel should be applied 5 minutes before intercourse. It is anesthetic gel and applying the same will not cause any pain.
You can take brufen tablet before 2 hours of sex.

Your problem is social issue now. As well as yo have some phobia of other pain also.But it is treatable with counseling.

Consulting nearby psychiatrist with your husband will surely help.
(Psychiatrist is by degree a sexologist also and used to deal with such problems)

Feel free to discuss further.

Brief Answer:
use brufen and lox gel, relax and move ahead

Detailed Answer:

I can understand your worry.

I suggest using both use brufen and lox gel today. I am sure that you would not have any pain. Allow your husband with finger. In my opinion with finger there will be even no pain as diameter of finger is less than that of penis.
To save your married life you have to be relaxed and try to cooperate with husband.
Please do not be apprehensive about pain and move ahead you will succeed.

Note: In general with 2% lignocaine gel there should be good effect. However you can use 5% if pain is there. But you need to consult doctor personally for the same.

All the best.
