I’m so tired of feeling like I’m messed up. I use a hormonal iud and have for about a year. Ever since I started being sexually active with the one partner I have ever been with (and am still with), I have been having problems. I get pain with penetration. I get UTIs. I get yeast infections all the freaking time. My period is never consistent. I get terrible cramps. I experience a lot of vaginal dryness. (The pain with penetration is there even when thoroughly lubricated, btw). It seems like every time I have sex I have some problem that makes it unpleasant and emotionally burdensome. Does anyone else feel like their vagina is just broken no matter what they do? Is this all because of my iud? I just want to be able to have a normal sexual life and normal feminine health and not have pain, itchiness, or discomfort what feels like every day.
I’m sorry if I shouldn’t have posted this here. I’m just so frustrated with it all.
