I am a 21 year old female. Lately I have been experiencing some odd symptoms. I have been feeling painful cramping but not like menstrual cramps. Its mostly if I get turned on, I feel it much more then. Then during sex, I have been bleeding. It's a dark red color and there is quite a bit of it. I have had sex before and I dont think it's my hymen. Then after sex I feel quite a bit of cramping and aching. I am on a birth control pill and have been for 4 years without experiencing anything like this until recently. Pleas help me if you have any advice. I'm very broke and can't really afford a doctor unless I absolutely need to.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of infection, ovarian cysts, endometriosis etc. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and investigations to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate would be started based on examination and investigation results to help you. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any new/abnormal symptom immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
