Regarding what? Getting better control of your pain or getting your husband to understand this pain?

I'm guessing you can't get him to understand that you have pain and discomfort when you are having sex.

I'm wondering if you mention this when you are in bed. If you are, trying talking to him outside of the bedroom. Look him in the eyes and share what you are feeling and ways you are hurting.

Also, talk about other positions you may try that won't be so painful to you. Think about it, then talk to him.

You can try looking for support on our Relationships and Coping Community as well.

Bottom line is talk about it. I hope that helps.

Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.
