Context: Husband and I intend to start trying for a baby in a couple of months. Till then, I've gone off hormonal birth control and we're using condoms. Both of us were sexually inactive before marrying and so we're new to condoms. While I was on HBC, we just didn't bother with condoms.
Problem: Condoms were fine to use for the last month, but recently they've been a bit sore for me. My vagina gets a raw-feeling after a little while. It takes husband a little longer to orgasm while wearing a condom, which means we're going for longer, which is more uncomfortable for me. We use lube when needed. If we decide not to use a condom when I'm infertile, sex might be a little uncomfortable, but it doesn't ADD to the discomfort.
Question: Is this normal? Do we need more lube? Do condoms typically add more friction, thus the discomfort? Suggestions, advice to lessen this discomfort?
