Woman Told To Stop Using Vibrator After It Gave Her Severe Pelvic Pain

Sex expert Nadia Bokody has revealed that her doctor banned her from using her vibrator - after it gave her pelvic pain so bad that it left her 'hobbling around the office'.

Thirty-four-year-old Nadia, who is based in Sydney, was left feeling pretty stumped by the strange pain. Confused as to where or what it was coming from, she went to her doctor for STI tests.

But when the tests came back, Nadia found that she was all clear of sexually transmitted infections, which was when she was urged to take a break from her sex toy.

The Mirror reports that Nadia had been hoping to spice things up after she had gone through her divorce. Eventually, she decided to treat herself to a vibrator, which she soon became 'obsessed' with, using it up to six times a day on its 'turbo setting'.

"It had been a long time since I'd had sex," she told the paper.

"But I wasn't entirely ready to be intimate with someone new, so after some research online I decided to purchase a vibrator.

"It was quite odd looking back, that I was running a women's website, providing women with sex-positive advice and information on using vibrators when I had yet to try one myself."

She continued: "I became obsessed with using it and the ease and speed at which it allowed me to feel pleasure again after months in a sexless marriage.

"It was incredibly liberating and empowering to really take control of my sexuality in that way for the first time in my adult life.

However, Nadia became concerned after a couple of weeks of using her new adult toy.

"I started experiencing some pelvic pain and was hobbling around the office," she explained.

"Not making the connection, I went to the doctor to find out what was wrong."

Nadia added: "The doctor started asking some questions and that's when I realised the pain had been the result of me over-using my vibrator! It was equal parts embarrassing and hilarious."

Advising others, Nadia reckons the main thing to keep in mind when trying 'something new' is to 'start out slow' - admitting that she had learned the hard way.

Nadia has also spoken out about how being allowed to 'own your sexuality' as a woman is important.

Speaking to the Daily Mail's Femail about the online abuse she often faces from trolls, she said that it merely reinforces what she's doing, and that it spurs on her on all the more.

She said: "I don't think any woman should let another person determine her worth. I want to challenge people's thinking and move toward living in a society where you can be allowed to own your sexuality as a woman without having to deal with constant abuse for it.

"At the end of the day, a woman like myself who is comfortable presenting herself in a sexy way makes people uncomfortable because it forces them to think about their own sexuality."
