Welcome to the forum, Hazel! As someone who also has vaginismus, I have found this forum quite helpful and I hope you do too! I don’t know anything about Pregabalin but maybe someone else who does will reply.

I have had issues with vaginismus since I started having penetrative sex at the age of 22 and it can impact women of all ages. I have never had lube that causes burning before but there are a lot of options so maybe you can try another kind? Slippery Stuff is a frequently recommended brand.

I’m not a medical professional but did your doctor mention pelvic floor physical therapy? It is definitely worth looking into if you can. Your physical therapist will probably give you some stretches and dilation exercises to do.
