For the past few months i ve expereinced constant burning due to condom use, needless to say this has made sex unbearable. We do use lubricant and I am on the pill as well. What can be causing the burning? Any advice to relieve burning?

It is recommendable that you go and seek professional guidance from a medical doctor or gynecologist. It might be that you are presenting with an allergic reaction to the latex (condom) or even to the lubrication. .No one should have to experience pain – your body is trying to communicate to you that you need to have it checked out.

Hi there, I don' t know what type of condoms u r using but some of them have their own lube which could cause problems if u r sensitive to it. Try 2 buy dry (unlubricated) condoms + use your own water based lube. Also b careful what kind of lube u use. I use the Durex 2 in one in the big maroon plastic cylinder. It is also a very good massage gel. Some of the other types of lube may trigger a allergic reation 2 the skin on your sensitive parts. Experiment to find out the best combination 4 u. Regards
