I've been suffering really badly for around 5 months now with not many times I feel "normal". This has had a huge impact on my relationship with my boyfriend he is kind and understanding, has attending Drs appointments with me and tries his best to look after me if I'm having a bad day, so really I couldn't ask for any more off him.
Our sex life has become near non existent - we are both so worried about it. The twice we have in these months we have been drinking before hand so I think it calms the nerves! However after another failed attempt I'm starting to get really fed up and a little emotional about it. I've been really trying to not worry about it as I know that'll make it worse, I've tried massage to relax the mood but when it comes to going any further it becomes almost awkward and fumbly because we are both so terrified it's going to hurt - him more so than me as I know if I'm having a bad day. This then ends in feelings of not being wanted and often tears.
Sorry for the long post with perhaps "awkward conversation" but I just wondered how anybody else got round this - the Drs don't tell you all of this about endo and it's difficult to discuss with friends who don't understand.
Thank you in advance xx
