Nur-isterate side-effects cont...

I posted the below query a few weeks ago and thank you for your reply...I have tried the KY Gel and it has unfortunately not helped with the painful intercourse. Is there anything else I can do or use?

I have been on Nur-Isterate for just over 1 year,,,and I have experienced the following "  problems"  , just after I have the injection I get thrush and intercourse tends to be quite painful. Are these "  side-effects"  of Nur-Isterate? I know how to sort out the Thrush but what can I do about the painful intercourse?
Please help?

Thrush could be precipitated by the injectable and this can cause painful intercourse. It may also be that you are not sufficiently lubricated and KY jelly will help with this.

I suffered from the same sort of symptoms as you are describing and it turned out to be abnormal cells on the cervix. I had to go for a small procedure called a colposcopy. Rather see a gynae as leaving it can make things worse. It' s not to say it' s the same thing, but rather safe than sorry.
