“I took the Depo shot four weeks ago and have been experiencing vaginal dryness and pain during sex. In the first week, I was getting headaches but they disappeared – does that mean the pain will disappear as well? If not, is there anything I can do to stop it??
The pain you are having with sex may be because of the vaginal dryness. There are several lubricants on the market that can be used, such as KY or Astro-glide. These are water soluble and can be used with Latex condoms. Remember, products made with petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline, should never be used as a lubricant. If the extra lubrication does not relieve the painful sex, you should see a care provider.
We hope this helps!
