Experience

Cerelle gave me a dark brown, bloody discharge almost everyday, so oral sex was a write-off. I normally have a high libido, but it went down to wanting to have sex once a week at the age of 22. It could also be that I was losing interest in my partner! I had once instance of cervicitis which required antibiotics and gave me pain during sex. I also regularly bled after sex. My understanding is that my cervix was persistently in a low position and so it made certain positions uncomfortable.
