I have a problem that has been going on since March of this year. I have been married for 2 1/2 years, but sexually active for about 4 years. During those years sex was never painful and I never used lubrication during sex because my own lubrication was always enough. Then this March I got a yeast infection and Bacterial Vaginosis. Sex was painful because of those infections. However, treatment I still had the same extreme burning sensations during sex and could not do it. So they treated me for inflammation of the uterus. The treatment took 2 weeks and I did not have sex during that time. I was also tested for STD's and everything else in the book and all those tests were negative.
Ever since March after treatment, sex has been tolerable at times, but most of the time the burning is horrible. I am also very dry and do not produce much lubrication was is the exact opposite of how it used to be. It is really taking a toll on my marriage because of it. I simply endure the pain now because I don't know what else to do.
Today however, when I had sex the pain was so bad it lasted for hours even after we finished. I could barely walk. I do not have any infection or anything visible wrong, so the doctors told me to just use a water based lubrication. But no matter how much lubrication I use, it still burns like hell. What can I do??
