I was diagnosed about 2 years ago with IC and have been celibate for about as long. I have started seeing someone and plan on being intimate but am having a hard time figuring how to without pain. I am pretty sure the thing that bothers me most is using condoms. I have tried just about every kind of birth control there is to no avail. I just cannot take it my body wont allow it. So I am going to have to stick with condoms but I am afraid because I don't want this to be a bad experience. So my question is does anyone have advice on the best brands. I was thinking about trying polyurethane or lambskin but lambskin just kind of weirds me out to think about. Also any lubrication that is best I have never tried it but think it might help. This is kind of an odd question but I could really use some advice. I have not had sex in a long time for fear of the pain but also I hate disappointing my partner and being disappointed in return. And I am very much in love with my boyfriend and don't want this disease to ruin our relationship. Thanks Tori

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
