Re: question about sex Hi Rose, there is a sticky thread in the Fertility etc. forum for intimacy issues. I think your thread will ultimately get merged with that one. I am no expert but from the little you have written, I think the problem is that you are not sufficiently aroused when you try intercourse. Lack of lubrication can make penetration quite painful. The solution would be to make foreplay last longer and try penetration only when you are properly aroused. As a test you could try using a lubricant and see if that changes anything.
