Can I use Fertile XX along with Loestrin 24 Birth control?
Can I use Fertile XX with Birth control to help vaginal pain during sex, mood, and boost my lacking desire to have sex?
Or will using Fertile XX mess up the birth control? I currently use Loestrin 24 w/iron tablets.
Just a bit of background. I've never had much desire to have sex. There has always been some pain, but it was tolerable.
Since my 1st child, 2009 emergency c-section, my vagina has felt like it can't stretch enough around the opening and has burning during and after sex. Sex is VERY uncomfortable, painful, and I really don't want to do it due to the pain. Any rubbing on the inside burns too. I have tried different lubrication. The 1st urination after sex burns the outer vagina as well. pH issue? Doc said I still have a bit of hymen left that could be an issue.
After baby, I was on a progestrin-only pill for too long. That caused menopause-type symptoms, VERY emotional mood swings, depression, SO MUCH ANGER, and so on. Changed pills in 2010, on the Loestrin 24 for about 7 months now. Mood is getting better, but I still don't feel like myself.
Do I just need a different b-pill? My husband and I do want to have another child soon in 1 or 2 years. But it's kind of hard when sex is so unpleasant.
Thanks for any insight into this matter. Even information on what to ask my doc or what to say.
