    How to enjoy sex after a herpes diagnosis

    I have had Herpes for two years now. My vaginal wall has become thin since my diagnosis to the point that sex is painful now. My vagina is extremely sore after sex so much so that it takes me 5 to 6 days to recover and of course it affects my sex life. Are there any pills or creams I can take to decrease the pain during and after sex? HELP!!!!

    Hi Have you thought of using a really good lubrication before sex, getting it right inside your vagina and of course making sure your guys penis is well coated, my wife gets dryness so there is always coconut oil around, she finds with that she gets lots of slip and no problems.

    But there are far more on the market, but keep away from water based as these go claggy during sex, so with tenderness is the last thing you need.

    The first thing to try for vaginal atrophy would be a vaginal moisturizer like Replens. You have to apply it every two or three days. If that doesn't help, go and talk to your gyn. You might need a topical estrogen cream or possibly another form of treatment. How old are you, by the way?

        I asked because vaginal atrophy happens to women in perimenopause/menopause. Definitely talk to your doc if Replens doesn't work for you.

        I hope you find relief soon.
