Living With PCOS: How to Enjoy the Pleasures of Lovemaking
Pick a pain-free position: Slight angle variations make big differences. Trying out different positions to find the most suitable one for you is, therefore, important. It is, however, wise to avoid being on top of your partner. Although it might not go for everyone, positions like the reverse cowgirl often cause a lot of pain. For Alice, every position that placed her on top caused significant pain, even when the cysts were not as bad.

Stick with soft toys: The zero flexibility of wood, metal, and glass toys makes them quite unforgiving, particularly if you hit a sore spot. As such, avoiding such rigid toys is advisable.
Lube up: Using a lot of lubrication is important. Although some people prefer water-based lubes, Alice prefers silicone lube because it does not necessitate reapplication. Seeing as glycerin often contributes to yeast infections, make sure the lube you choose is glycerin-free. The dryness of your honeypot is often as a result of anxiety and pain. Lube is usually quite useful in such situations.
Do not power through: Stop immediately you feel any sharp stabbing pains while making love. Such pains almost always turn into painful dull throbs that can last for hours or even days.
Do not forget foreplay: In addition to being fun, foreplay is also great for relaxing your body. It, therefore, helps to minimize the pain you might experience while getting in on.
Do @rgasm: Having an orgasm before penetration helps to reduce the pain you might experience while getting some. However, you should not fret just because you cannot attain an @rgasm prior to penetration. The suggestions mentioned above will ensure your lovemaking sessions are better, more pleasurable, and less painful.
Managing PCOS in your daily life is important. Apart from improving your love life, it also improves your overall health and quality of life. Dealing with weight gain is a major part of managing PCOS. Hormonal imbalances result in poor insulin regulation, making you susceptible to weight gain. Gaining weight worsens hormonal imbalances, which makes losing weight a lot more difficult. Managing or losing weight often reverses many effects of PCOS such as the formation of cysts.
