@FromA2B2013:  Did you switch birth control, lube, or condoms, Or even body wash or laundry detergent? First figure out if there has been any change in routine- the female body can be strange sometimes and react to the strangest things! It also may be a yeast infection or something. Also, check to be sure your lube is free of irritating ingredients like alcohols and maybe try an all-natural one; Astroglide has one that is water based and includes aloe vera, and that might help soothe some of the burning. It’s nearly identical in consistency to their normal lube in my opinion.

@FromA2B2013:  Maybe you’ve just become sensitive to it. My FI can’t take any kind of lube on his man parts. Flavored, unflavored, warming…doesn’t matter it always feels like it’s burning.

@FromA2B2013:  Condoms in general give me a burning sensation. They rub me the wrong way (no pun intended). I never used any extra lube, just what already came on them.

We use coconit oil and it is AMAZING. Now I don’t know about using it with condoms and I tried googling it for you but results are mixed. In fact many websites said there was no firm evidence either way about using condoms and coconut oil together. Id ask your doctor because coconut oil is seriously the very best lube I have ever used. It’s unbelievable!!

It could be the condoms. How long have you been using them? Also, I also recommending using coconut oil. But I’m not sure it can be used with condoms.

I had the same thing. It turned out I was super sensitive to Glycerin, which is in a lot of the major brands of lubes. Luckily, you can easily find lubes that don’t have glycerin in them.

@lalalyanne: hahaha but I digress… Im allergic to like all other lubes too, I was going nuts but coconut oil is the best. Never going back!

Plus with all the chemicals and parabens and yucky stuff in lube I’m happy with coconut oil… 

 

And sex smells like a piña colada now. Hahahaha

@FromA2B2013:  I get the same stinging when I’m feeling yeast infection-y!

Definitely consider a yeast infection as a possibility – it can cause burning during intimacy. It could also be that you are somewhat irritated (for whtever reason) internally and it feels like the lube is causing teh stinging.

@FromA2B2013:  Might be the condoms. Try non-latex ones (but they are expensive). Also make sure the lube doesnt have a spermacide like nonoxenal-9 (sp?).
