    I'm not sure what ABG cream is. I use compounded ketamine, lidocaine, and gabapentin cream. (guess maybe I should put that in my signature too!) I used vaginal valium (10 mg suppositories) for about a year and a half very effectively. My pelvic floor is much better now (thankfully!), so I mostly rely on oral valium at a much lower dosage. Now I'll only use a suppository after intercourse, or if I'm feeling really tight or spasm-y.
