One of the nastiest symptoms we experience with Endometriosis is painful sex. I hated this one more than any of the others, as it really limited my relationships and brought up so many issues within myself.
Over the years, I have shared a few articles on sex with Endometriosis and have given you some suggestions on how to make it easier, and I am here to help you understand your sex life. Today, I have organized a wonderful interview with a relationship expert. Tarisha Tourok works with women to re-ignite their love life and find intimacy within a relationship. I invited her onto the Endo Empowered platform to share some insights on intimacy and relationships, which I am sure you will find incredibly helpful.
I know that it has taken me a long time to get to a place of loving my body and feeling free sexually. If you feel like sharing your thoughts or got some valuable insights in the interview, feel free to share them in the comments section below.
What do do after sex…
It is natural to want to go to sleep after sex or to curl up afterwards. Try to resist this and follow these ideas instead:
- Go to the toilet as soon as you can. You want to alleviate any pressure that may have come about through having sex and letting go of anything you may have held onto. Let it out!
- Open up the area and let the blood circulation flow through your body and abdominal cavity. We want to let the blood flow easily and without restriction. This ensures you get enough oxygen to the area and give it loads of nourishment. This will help your body and alleviate the tightness which often builds up afterwards.
- Take loads of deep breaths. Breathe in to the count to 10, hold to 10 and breathe out to 10. You will be amazed at how effective this is.
