Sexual help

HJam5880 profile image

My boyfriend and I had sex for the first time this afternoon. Don’t worry we were safe. However, I have spina bifida and I could feel everything until he penetrated. When he did, I couldn’t feel it anymore. I enjoyed being with him but really didn’t get any enjoyment out of the sex itself. He did, but I didn’t. I could still feel everything on the outside, but nothing on the inside.

Yes, it is definitely related in my opinion.

🤔 Can you speak to your GP/Specialist to ask if there’s any help available..

Yes I’m sure I could, but I don’t think there is anything to help since it has to do with the nerves being damaged from the spina bifida.

As the life expectancy of persons with spina bifida increases, sexual life in adulthood presents a considerable challenge for this population. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the sexual function of young women with spina bifida and its impact on their quality of life (QOL). 👍

I read a lot of articles and everything, but there isn’t much out there about this specific situation.
