First time

Recommended Posts

Today I had intercourse for the first time in about a month since my first outbreak. I’ve been clear for 2 weeks now and actually feel pretty well. Intercourse hurt today. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m not used to it? Maybe I was a little tense? It was the friction more than anything. Is this normal after your first outbreak. Will this get easier?

The pain could have been a physical thing or mental. It can be difficult to know.

The virus does attach to nerve bundles, so you could have been extra sensative because of that.

There is also the mental aspect in that being anxious about it could have caused all kinds of effects like a slight lack of wetness, or muscle tension, like you said.

It will get better either way.

I think your work to bolster your self-image as well as your immune system getting proficient at killing the virus will ease this issue.
