Does anyone have advice on increasing sex drive? Since my symptoms start I went from 5-6 times a week to maybe 4 times a month. (My poor h7svand is a saint.) I'd love to hear what you've tried that works.
I have the same problem. We have tried different positions to make it work. Some times I have to give up because of the pain, but other times we find the right position. I think you just have to experiment to find what’s working for you.
Reving up our sex drive when we know the big ‘O’ awaiting us is not going to happen, not while we are in so much pain that is, seems like a monumental task with no reward at the end. Talk with your partner about other ways you can share intimacy on the days your pain is tipping the scales. Feeling pretty, which is another hurdle when you have chronic pain, is essential and can give our libido a nice boost. For me, it’s taking a scented bath on the days I get my hair done with some ‘Let’s get it on’ music playing. Love Pantry also has many innovative devices today that please both partners and are quite fun to experiment with. Keep an open mind and tell yourself you deserve all the joys of intimacy in whatever form works for you.
