Due to menopause, having intercourse burns inside and out. While xylocaine helps on the outside, the burning is bad inside. so would it be safe to use inside?
Can I use xylocaine inside the vagina to alleviate the excruciating burning during intercourse?

So how did this work for you? My gynecologist just prescribed it and I have internal pain. I am 38 now and have had painful sex with my current relationship for the whole 2+ years we've been together. We use lube and it helps a little. Apply, wait 10 min, add lube, and it should affect him less?
I tried replens and it just gave me a vinegar smell down there, and the estrogen caused nausea.
I had trouble with dryness since menopause and found that virgin coconut oil works great for that and having sex. Nice that it is natural too because I was having side effects with all the others things prescribed from the doctor. Your burning could be from dryness when having sex.
My doctor prescribed it to me for that very reason. She knows I have nerve pain that affects the pelvis/pelvic floor so gave me the lidocaine so on occasion my hubby and I can do the real thing. It helps, but reduces the sensation that my hubby gets. Oh well - we've tried it on me for 10 min, then wiping and using KY Jelly - that helped him better - not perfect for either of us, but better. We've pretty well given up on sex - 50 years old and no good sex since age 37. I got ripped off God! EJ23
Your gynecologist should be able to help you with the burning. Estrogen cream is used. There is also things like Replens to add moisture. Do you use a good lubricant? I don't think I'd use it lidocaine internally unless you check with your doc.
