I’m allergic to SEX – I break out in hives & can’t walk properly… but now I’ve discovered how to beat it 0 271

A WOMAN discovered she was allergic to condoms when she came out in hives after sex- but now it doesn’t hold her back in the bedroom.

Bryanna Alexis, 26, had no idea what was wrong when she broke out in a rash and swelling after having sex with a condom for the first time.

After the irritation and swelling went away she continued to use condoms but would often find they would leave her in discomfort and in pain.

It wasn’t until she was 21 that Bryanna realised that it might be the condoms that were causing the issue and discovered she had an allergy to latex.

Now she is able to use non-latex alternatives which means she can have a pleasurable sex life.

Bryanna, a model and sex coach student from Austin, Texas, said: “All my friends were telling me how great sex was for them and I couldn’t relate.

“But after having sex for the first time with a condom I was in so much pain I couldn’t walk properly.

“I was all red and swollen.

“After that I’d always be in discomfort.

“But now I know I can just use alternatives and it’s great.”

Bryanna was only 18 when her first sexual experience ended up with her in the hospital.

“I went to hospital because I was so worried,” she said.

“But by the time I was seen my hives had gone done so I just went home and got myself tested for STD’s instead.”

But her swelling stayed and she couldn’t have sex for three days.

After breaking up with her boyfriend Bryanna started dating around and started to make a connection between when sex felt good and when she would be left in pain.

“I started looking at the packets of the condoms used,’ she said.

“I realised it was latex ones that were leaving me in pain.”

After discovering her allergy she now uses only non-latex condoms.

“They are more expensive and are very thin so can break more easily,” she said.

“But I have never had a problem.

“It’s funny once a man ran out to the shops to go and get some non-latex condoms.”

Bryanna wants to encourage others to get things checked out if anything ever feels wrong.

“It’s not meant to hurt or be uncomfortable so it might be an allergy,” she said.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
