Asked by Me , Sun, 26 Feb 2017

In connect to my earlier discussion, we visited Gynocologist. Doctor tried to council her and she referred Xylocaine Gel for external use before intercourse. So that she wont have pain.
Now i want to know whether this gel can be used for this purpose and any side effects will be there.
