    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Has anyone heard of it? If so, is there a way to permanently get rid of it? I do not want to live without sex for the rest of my life! All I do is cry! I feel like an outcast.

    I just do not know what to do!

    What kind of treatment has your doctor given you?

    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    I think I have read every website on here about the topic! This is the name of the powerful coretesteroid the doctor gave me: Clobetasol Propionate USP 0.05%. I have been using it for a month a half from 2-4xa day and nothing. I know by now I am immune.

    Sex is not dirty to me. I love it, want it so bad. It is this dam thing that is stopping.

    Thank Goodness I have a dr appt for this because I am so abnnoyed!

    Glad to hear you're getting it treated properly. As there are several treatment options, fingers crossed that you'll find the right one at your next appointment. I hope it isn't causing you too much pain. I suppose if you have to be grateful for small mercies, at least it isn't contagious...

    Good luck!

    PS - I don't know whether you realized it or not but the "dirty" comment wasn't intended for you - it's my signature

    OK, long story short, my doc was giving me the wrong medicine. I went in there and she decided since it was getting no better with treatment, she wanted me to see her senior partner. Well he has 17 more years experience. He gave me 2 cremes, I said something during talking telling him alot. Long story short, it is stress urinary incontinence. They are doing a test to see how much then putting me in hospital to correct this thing so all is much better now. God Bless You!
