I'm just curious if anyone here has a sexual disorder or any medical issue that gets in the way sometimes of using their toys? I have PCOS and Endometriosis, sometimes there are days where I just can't play with my toys even though I want to very badly. Does anyone here know how to combat that? Are there any specific toys that are softer and squishier than others to make penetration possible?

I had endometriosis until they did my hysterectomy, which made it uncomfortable to have sex in some positions. but now all positions are pretty much good except doggie due to scar tissue where they sewed up the upper part of the vagina closed during the hysterectomy because they took the cervix also.

All I can recommend is doing your research. I'm an advocate of women getting tested for PCOS.. 1 in 10 women in the US have it. It's been a struggle, a LOT of medication and lifestyle changes and having to cope with just the awfulness of it- like constant pain and infertility... but you learn to manage and once you know what it is it all gets easier.

I also had a hysterectomy and have a scar at the top of my vagina. I find that now its essential that I'm fully warmed up before my man enters me. Otherwise pushing against that scar hurts. I wish they had left my cervix in place, but I think they hardly ever do.

Actually, you can request to keep the cervical stump in place, if there is no cancer. I had low grade cancer and eight pounds of tumors. I lost my uterus and cervix, but I kept my ovaries even though they had large cysts (a dermoid and a complex cyst) of them. The vvaginal cuff was sewn shut. It was then cut open two more times-once because I hemorrhaged, the second time because post hemorrage I developed an abcess in my abdomen.
When you don't have a cervix, you don't lubricate enough. Use a lot of lube. As for people who have endometriosis, there are shots and pills and hormone treatments that can help, laparoscopic removal of endometrial tissue that is outside the uterus, and motrin before playing or sex helps.

Our unit secretary has PCOS. She just had her second healthy baby boy. A few meds can go a long way if you find the right reproductive endocrinologist.

Funny, or not so funny, I'm facing this kind of crap right now. I just had an ultrasound a couple of days ago and I have 5 small fibroids. The Dr wants me to have a hysterectomy. I said NO WAY!!!!! I think my husband is upset with me, probably because he's worried about me. But it's not his body.

Sorry to run on. I'm just very pissed about this whole thing.

I had a hysterectomy when I was 29 due to fibroids and 3 grapefruit sized tumors. I put it off as long as I could but the pain and discomfort got unbearable and I have a high tolerance for pain. At that time (19 years ago), they thought they had to leave some part of the ovaries but didn't care about the cervix. I now have 1/2 an ovary which is a real pain-literally. I can say that it was the best thing I did afterwards..I wasn't sure at the time.
Good luck with working through this!

Thanks! I've actually decided to seek another DR. One that knows more about natural health alternatives and is less knife happy.

Oh and I'm not having any symptoms. So I can live with this until menopause is over. They will shrink to nothing then.

Yes DEFINITELY seek another opinion if you aren't having any symptoms. I've had fibroids for years and wouldn't have even known if they hadn't shown up in an ultrasound I was having for something else. Scared the hell out of me at first, but then I just figured why worry about it if they aren't doing anything. I just keep my folic acid levels up and use a natural progesterone cream to keep them from getting too big while I'm wading through pre-menopause (I'm estrogen dominant).
