For the last 9 years I have had pain during sex. It has only gotten worst. I am at the point where sex is unbearable. I feel like EDS has taken all of life’s joys from me. Is this part of EDS? I have mentioned it to countless doctors with not a one offering up any help. One doctor even said it was because I was entering peri-menopause and another one said it was Fibromyalgia? Really it started 9 years ago and I am 37? I am tired of cop out answers? If it was them they would not live with it and they would want help. I really need to feel like the person I use to be. I am tired of living in this body falling apart?
Yes, I recall pain during intercourse and I have EDS. I have no sex drive so it is not an issue for me LOL!
I still have the desire, but the pain is a big deterrent. It is unbearablely painful. I get the courage up to try again and I am in tears afterward. My husband doesn’t even ask anymore, and I hate that. I feel like EDS has taken every last thing from me. I feel like all I do anymore is exist, such as it is. I just want something back to make me feel like a have something left.
