Those with Fibroids or Cysts

I dont wanna directly call these ladies out but the sex poll kinda got me thinking.  Sometimes I do wish I were more freaky, I know some of it is just being shy and the other is just afraid of it hurting more than it already does.  Since I have 3 strikes against me that cause pain when having sex: ovarian cysts, endometriosis and now a fibroid.

So I guess my question is, IF these ladies want to discuss it, what positions have ya'll tried?  I dont dare want to get into yoga poses and mess, but if missionary even hurts, what other possibility could there be?

Re: Those with Fibroids or Cysts

  • i have fibroids but no pain during intercourse. sorry you're going through that! i'm sure there's something you can do to make it more bearable. perhaps on top so you have more control?
    Me:39 Dx LPD, Fibroid, AMA and all that goes with that. H:37 Dx low motility and low morphology. TTC since 3/12. Clomid 8/12 and 9/12: BFN. 11/12 on a break for Myomectomy sched. 11/26. Resume TTC early 2013.
  • I don't have fibroids or pain during sex but fwiw, you and H could try new positions, just go slowly and don't start out with anything too crazy. If it hurts then stop and try something else. I know it can be a little wierd stopping and moving around when you're going at it but maybe you guys could have "exploration" sex to see what works and what doesn't. Just my two cents.

  • Yeah, I agree with Kelli.  I would just try all different ways to see what you and your H are comfortable with and enjoy at the same time.  Some positions you can't hold for very long anyhow because then the leg cramps start up and how much fun can that be when your leg starts to spaz out on you.  None at all.  There are books with illustrations and all showing hundreds of positions you could try out.  Maybe try laying on your side and having your H come up from behind you on his side?  That one seems to feel good but not cause it to go in as far as other positions if that is a problem.

    I am sorry you have to go through that and I am positive that if it was or had ever been painful for me I wouldn't be as free and risque'.  

  • I know your pain Sad I can't do missionary at all.. It's just too painful. The angle hubs is at scrapes against where I'm already sore. Doggy always seems to be ok.. and hubs does this weird scissor position thing that is ok most of the time.

    Move around and see what works for you. There's no need to be shy, you're with your hubs! Talk it over with him first, and let him know that he needs to stop and switch it up if it's painful. You'll find a spot that doesn't hurt. GL!
