  • Ive had one and it shouldnt hurt like that unless you insert it wrong, i would go ahead and report this to your Dr. and get a new one so you dont get infection.

  • Sex shouldn't hurt. Period. Talk to your doctor ASAP because a simple check can determine if there is an issue. To let it go could result in infection, infertility, and a host of other problems.

  • I couldn't have sex when I had it. A. I was in so much pain in general from that POS I almost went to the ER a few times, B. DH got stabbed by the strings (and not on the head, WAY down the shaft) and i saw it when it was removed...the strings were at least 2.5 inches long. I had so many problems from it, I almost went crazy. Sex issues were the least of my problems, though. I had it removed and almost immediately felt better, and sex was fine about a week later, after everything healed.
