I was having sex with my boyfriend and he decided to rub cocaine on my clit and inside me. I don't really understand why he did it or what it does to me. Can it affect you the next day? I had nasty pains in my hip area the next morning and I was wondering if it could have been related?
Cocaine is a drug that is commonly used during sex. This is because it is a stimulant and the effects make people feel confident, alert and sexy. Stimulants do what it sounds like they do - they speed up the way your body works, increasing the activity in the brain. It's a rush of adrenaline.
So, when your boyfriend rubbed cocaine on you, it could have been absorbed into your body, just as when it is snorted through the nose or rubbed onto the gums. When used in this way the effects could have taken longer to notice, because the cocaine would need time to pass into your bloodstream.
Depending on how much coke was taken, the effects the next day could be similar to the symptoms of flu: feeling run down; aches; pains; and headaches. Although cocaine is a stimulant, the side effects can be confusing as it can restrict blood flow to parts of the body and it can dehydrate you.
So, it's possible that the pains in your hip area were due to the cocaine, but there could be other causes. If the symptom persists be sure to contact a health care professional. NHS Direct can provide confidential advice and information over the phone on 0845 46 47 or online.
It's important to be aware of the risks and effects of drugs before you use them so that you will know what to expect and know how to stay safe. Cocaine can be very dangerous, especially if mixed with other drugs like alcohol, because it can increase the risk of heart attack. It also makes your hangovers very nasty. For more information about drugs and alcohol you can ring Frank on 0800 77 66 00 or have a look at our A to Z of drugs.
Mixing sex and drugs can be fun, but it can lower your inhibitions, leading you to take more risks with contraception. Also, condoms are highly sensitive to different substances, and their effectiveness may be reduced by stimulants such as cocaine. If you need advice about the contraception you are using, talk to your doctor (GP) or visit your local genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic. Services are located attached to or within local hospitals, and are usually separate, discreet departments. GUM consultations are free and confidential, which means that no one will be told about your visit, unless you want them to know.
