I have been married almost 1 year now, my husband and I did not have intercourse before we were married so this is all new to us.
I have a hard time wanting to or showing that I want to have sex. I blame it on the fact that I am fairly shy about my body and don't have the best self esteem about the way I look. When I comes down to it I know nothing is really wrong with the way I look, I have a poor self image for some reason. I think that reason could be because I conracted HPV from a previous relationship (without having sex-just body to body contact) I do not have or show any symptoms of this virus any longer but I believe it really beat down on my self esteem.
This is causing a really big problem in my marriage-it's something we have been fighting about for a long time. And it seems to just get worse. I don't know what to do to make it better, any suggestions.
I also have a question because when we do have sex (about once a week-which is not enough according to my husband) it burns inside afterwards? What would cause this?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thank you!
