I have lost interest in having intercourse with my husband because many times I get a burning sensation. Also, I often get infections afterwards. Do other women experience this problem and what can be done about it?

My husband was recently diagnosed with Peyronie's Disease. What suggestions can you tell me to continue to have sex? It is very frustrating for him and me.
