Dear Kari
Painful sex is not normal - you may have an infection of the uterus, or a retroverted uterus or an ovarian cyst, and I think you should go for an examination by a gynecologist or your GP to determine and treat the cause of the pain. If your husband gets early morning erections, his lack of performance may be due to psychological factors ( stress, marital discord ) more than physical factors. But if he doesn't get morning erections, his diabetes may have affected his erections and he may need to see an urologist as he may need treatment for erectile dysfunction. It may also help to see a marriage counsellor to sort out the friction between the two of you. Trust is very important in a relationship, and he may feel insecure.
