My sex life with my wife is practically non existent. I feel sorry because my wife experiences pain sometimes due to fibroids she got from her pregnancy. Sometimes, if I do the right foreplay (which I always do anyway), she does not feel pain. But sometimes she does. I would not dare expect her to go through surgery. That would not be fair after all she's been through giving birth. My wife is middle aged. Is it true the fibroids get smaller once you hit your 50s? I don't know how much I can take of a sexless marriage.
