First and foremost… If you’re having pain with sex, try using a lubricant.

I know, I know, you don’t think you need a lubricant…trust me, try it.

But not just any lubricant. Always pick a lubricant that is free of glycerin, fragrances, dyes, gluten and all the things that make vaginas unhappy.

Also, if you are using a silicone dilator, toy or condom – make sure your lubricant is silicone-free too.

Water-based is the way to go.
