Ok, this is kinda on a personal level here. Maybe too much info...lol.<br><br>
Sex has been awesome. Dh has pregnancy fetish, so I'm well taken care of..lol... but it's the couple days following that are the problem. It feels as though I have a yeast infection, tender, itchy... I'm not sure WHAT it is. I feel bad telling him no as I'm into it too, just I need recovery time in between or things are just too tender. He's very gentle with me, he practically worships me..lol... so it's not that. I'm not sore or hurting during, and if I'm uncomfortable, I just need to say so and we change position, etc...<br><br>
Any ideas?

Oooh, you reminded me of how nice sex in the 2nd & 3rd trimester is! Although, what you're experiencing is not so nice.<br><br>
Here is the first thing that came to mind -- lubrication. It's possible that you need a little more lubrication. You could use olive oil (in fact you could ask him to do perenial massage with this) or traditional KY type stuff.<br><br>
I wonder if the itchiness is a possible yeast infection he's carrying? Have you had this before? You could make sure he washes himself really well before intercourse.<br><br>
Just ideas! Hey, have fun!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I had the same reaction the other day...I think we need to start using lubricant because I was so tender the following day, even though it felt great while we were making love. I haven't had a yeast infection, so I don't think that was it, but it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on your symptoms and make sure that isn't it.

I think maybe it is a lubrication issue.... that combined that for the first time in 4 years, I'm not clean shaven..LOL.. a little more abrasion going on.<br><br>
I'll talk to him about it, and see what happens then next time. Being tender is just not fun.

Have you had a check to see if you have a yeast infection or bladder infection? PG women are prone to them... I usually get them all the time, but haven't gotten one since i've been PG, weirdly enough... I had a UTI in the first tri though... thought it was a yeast infection but it was a uti...<br><br>
I don't have sex... EVER! haha So i don't know if it is that or not...

Lubrication!! But avoid actual KY...it is kinda gross (for me anyway) it gets chunky and takes forever to....well.... remove itself.... I never thought about olive oil...is that like regular olive oil (that is a very silly question isn't it...)

I'd make sure it was cold pressed extra virgin and not the "light" stuff , but yeah, regular olive oil. I don't know if I could use it, though. I haven't been enjoying sex at all this time, so I'm in CTMoms boat.

Sounds like when I had Bacterial Vaginosis. Nasty stuff. You might want to have your HCP check for that. You and DH probably both have to be treated if that is your issue. Good luck and keep us updated!

I found na dbought a personal lubricant, and INSTANTLY the discomfort went away! We'll see how this works over the next little bit, though I will speak to my hcp to see if there is any chance of infection....<br><br>
Thanks!!!
