I find it bizarre that those words can even go together, but there you go.
I'm a 20 year old female who has never had a romantic or sexual partner. I normally have a fairly cyclical high-low sex drive, which is fine with me, and have been masturbating since I was reeally little, so no issue there with "handling it" so to speak. I have endometriosis which makes penetration extremely painful (which is part of why I'm not interested in jumping into partnered sex anytime soon); I'm currently on some pretty serious hormone-messing-with treatment that was supposed to kill my sex drive. Which was fine, whatever, I can deal with that.
But it didn't. It shot it through the roof. I seriously cannot get my mind or body away from arousal for more than a few hours, and I can't really masturbate as often as I've been wanting to recently. It's really getting distracting and inconvenient. I'm a busy person, I have other stuff to do! I have an appt with my gyn in a few weeks, so I'm definitely going to ask about it then, but I was wondering if anyone had advice on dealing with this so i can get on with my life until then. (Exercise has occurred to me as an option except the endometriosis makes that painful too, yay.)

A lot of times when it comes to things like this when you can't or don't have time are things like thinking of something that you don't find sexy, talking a nice slow walk (which is exercise that won't be mega painful), reading a chapter in a book, or finding something you like to do that's non-sexual in nature.
