Having just got my mojo back after a two-month long disgustingly chaste flare... I have to say that certain positions still rub me wrong (unfortunately one of them is my partner's favorite and one I usually love :-( ), we just have to play around and experiment.
Me on top seems to help quite a bit because I can control the speed, pressure and whatnot.
Also, when the flare was more mild, before it got bad and we stopped having sex, if I was hurting with penetration, then digital manipulation helped keep us sexually active without irritating me.
You just need a LOT of patience, communication, and humor for both partners.
And yes, prednisone does seem to mess with desire. It took me like three times as long to climax as usual. But it happened.
Oh yeah... and morning sex after the suppository evacuation might work better... or before insertion in the earlier evening. I haven't tried sex after putting in the suppository and quite frankly, wouldn't want to.
