I’ve tried using lube, but I’m still experiencing pain during sex. What can I do?
There are definitely solutions, other than lube, for the pain you’re experiencing during sex. The treatment might take a longer process, but you absolutely can get back to a point where you’re not having pain during sex. The key takeaway is that you really have to figure out what the underlying cause is before you strategize what the treatment plan is. It’s not just as simple as using a little bit of lube, there might be an underlying issue going on that needs to be addressed by a professional.
