While I have no idea if I actually have PCOS, I will say that the constant bleeding sometimes puts a damper on sex. Not because of the mess, but (this is probably TMI, just a warning) because I'm a lot more....juicy, and between excess fluids and a condom, it would result in major loss of feeling for both of us. And that sucked because my boyfriend and I are both major horn dogs and we generally have some kind of sex at least twice every time I see him. All I can say is I'm so very grateful that he and I discovered a position for anal sex that is comfortable for us both because it means we can enjoy sex when I'm on my period and not need a condom. Sorry, hope that didn't gross anyone out.
I'm also self-conscious about my appearance because of my weight and also because I've got some stretch marks from that weight, and for a short time I told my boyfriend I didn't want to have sex until I lost weight. That lasted about 2 minutes because I wanted it and he wanted it, and despite my looks, he still finds me sexy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world sometimes...not only because my guy truly loves me for who I am, but because we are equal in terms of our sex drives. Heck, last time I saw him, I was just rubbing his belly while we watched TV together and he got hard. Not like a sensual massage - just some gentle rubbing. He also doesn't mind if I haven't shaved and we rib one another playfully when I've got fuzzy legs and he's got a 5 o'clock shadow.
So while the bleeding nonsense can be a tiny buzzkill, we find ways around it. Some days, I may not want sex, but I just want to lavish him with my hands and mouth. It's a weird kind of arousal, but I can assure you he never complains.
