ill start off by saying I have been checked for stds and all my paps have been normal, so I was just wondering if anyone out there has the same problem or knows anything about it.everytime we have sex and he goes inside of me it burns afterwards and we have to stop having sex after that because it hurts so bad. I have no idea why and I havent asked my doctor but I have had my pap in the last year and everythings came back normal so I dont understand why this is happening and how can I make it stop? Somebody please give me an idea?
Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.
Dyspareunia, or pain during intercourse can be caused by either something inside the vagina or outside in the pelvic organs. Inside the vagina some common causes are:
(1) Vaginismus or painful spasm of the vaginal muscles.
(2) Female Sexual Arousal Deficit. FSAD
(3) Vaginitis or infection.
(4) Perineal tear.
Outside the vagina some common causes are:
(2) Ovarian Cyst.
(3) Uterine fibroids.
(4) Diverticular disease.
(5) Pelvic Inflammatory Diseaseâ
All of these conditions need appropriate investigation.I think in your case the most likely diagnosis is a vaginitis. In a word, you need to see a doctor.
I had a similar problem with my ex-boyfriend. I was checked for everything and my docs were unable to diagnose a problem with me - one doc even went as to far to say that it might be psycho-somatic. Fast forward a few years of painful sex. My ex and I break up. He starts dating anew girl and she has the same problem. She goes to her doc who suggests that my ex had an asymptomatic UTI. They both went on doxy for 2 weeks - problem solved. I wanted to share this because it was a horrible experience and I put up with uncomfortable sex for years. No one even suggested that the problem might be him and not me. Not sure if this will help you.
