I know this is a little Too Much Information, but I thought the hive might have some answers.
I went off the pill and before Darling Husband and I can start TTC I need to have two full cycles, which means we need to use backup birth control. About 5 yrs ago I have the leep procedure done and had a large portion of my cervic removed. Because of that different positions cause paid, but we have learned to work around it. Now trying to use condoms for the first time since the leep, it is extremely painful. We have tried latex and non-latex and both are not working. We want to ensure that we don’t get pregnant before November but still want to be intimate with each other.
Has anyone else had problems using condoms and we are to find another solution? Please help!

Lots and lots of LUBE!!! SO and I are in a semi-LDR and so my body isn’t always used to using condoms and I find myself being very sensitive down-there afterwards. But if you use the right lube, it will make everything go a lot smoother IMO.

@Koala Beer- Where my cervix should be is more like exposed skin that hasn’t completely healed so when the condom touches it, it make me naseaous.

@roxy821: Owwww… 🙁
I would try lots of lube too, but also switch up positions so you control the depth and angle so he doesn’t accidentally hit your cervix. Try him sitting in a chair and you on top. We tried that for fun, and it’s great! I know my preggo friends also recommended that for pregnancy, so if you do get pregnant, it’s a good one to remember when your belly gets bigger.

I personally do not mind condoms, but I switched to The Pill and I prefer to actually feel my man, all his little bumps and curves. He agrees, as condoms can numb the natural ridges in your lady bits and not feel as pleasurable. There are definitely a lot of choices when it comes to BC methods, so I’m not sure if it’s just the CONDOM that makes you feel uncomfortable or just the sensation of being touched in a vulnerable spot. Like piglet_625 mentioned, try changing positions so your sensitive spot on your cervix isn’t being hit. I hope you find something that works for you both!

What do you mean the condoms are not working? Are they breaking? Slipping off? Or is it just painful? Wouldn’t it also be painful if you weren’t using condoms?
