I'm sorry if this topic has already been covered but I was unable to find something that related specifically to my problem.
I had a radical trachelectomy February 2016 since then my partner and I haven't been intimate a huge amount of times because he's too scared of hurting me. When we do he says he finds it too difficult and hurts him (he even thinks my 'stitch' gave him a cut). I haven't been told I need to use a dilator or anything to help with this but have been trying to loosen things up a little to make it easier using a non clinical dialator! I'm just wondering if there is anything else I/we could be doing to try and make this better.
The problem with all of this is that I seem to have lost all confidence when it comes to sex and I struggle to initiate things with him, for the fear of being knocked back. Any help/advice/similar experiences would be much appreciated.
Thank you xxx
