Re: Cp-womans health issues
Hi, I'm Kelly, nearly 28, with mild CP. First, CP should have no affect whatsoever on your friend having her gynecological health issues taken seriously. CP or no CP every woman has the right to have her feelings respected and concerns addressed. If your friend is spastic in the pelvic region, it may be a little more difficult, I won't lie - it is for me. But, typically, my primary care doctor will give me a stronger muscle relaxer than I typically take (I normally take a low dose of Baclofen on a daily basis) to take 30 min to an hr. before a scheduled pelvic exam. Right now, I am having some issues with my menstrual cycles and need to have those addressed. In order to do this as effectively as possible, I have to take a muscle relaxer that is stronger than normal prior to the procedure I will be having to check on things.
I have been sexually active in the past (am not currently) and although pleasurable, sexual intercourse was a bit difficult, but my partner at the time and I discussed it, and he was fine with doing whatever was in his power to make the sexual experience more pleasurable for us both. I wish your friend the best of luck.
