I have a cousin that had to use little inserts to slowly stretch her vagina - intercourse was painful to her, and it took a while, but the inserts worked.

Also, have you considered going about other means for a baby, and working on this on the side? Your eggs, your DH's sperm, but just meeting in a dish instead of your body? It might take some of the pressure off getting the act "right".


I get "overstimulated" also, which is a HUGE mood killer for me. HUGE. Things that I've found that help if I can tell this will be a possibility:

1) Making it quick. Yes, it's not "romantic", but quickies can be fun, too, and it keeps me from wigging out.

2) Keeping a shirt on. Less skin exposure, less chance of overstimulation.

3) Letting DH know EXACTLY what can cause it. Certain places just CAN'T be touched on me once things, or the mood is gone.

4) Getting a back rub beforehand. It desensitizes me or something.
