Experience

Lost my sex drive basically completely which resulted in painful sex when it did happen (made the problem worse). This was even with using lubricants. Went to the Doctor and a Gynaecologist for years to try to find the reason why, eventually was just diagnosed with Vaginismus. Came off the mini pill and within weeks my sex drive came back and the painful sex stopped!
