This is the first time that this has happened, my boyfriend and i were having intercourse when I felt a sharp pain about two inches below my belly button and a bit to the right. When the pain persisted, sex was impossible. The pain even lasted for a few minutes afterwards. I am on vacation right now and if it is not serious would rather wait until I get home to seek medical attention. If it could be serious, however, I will go now. Please help, I'm somewhat worried, as I have had several bladder and yeast infections in the past and do not want any more misfortune for my poor vagina. Thank you!

Ovarian Cyst...Not as bad as it sounds!
Hey there, sorry you're having these complications. They could be coming from a cyst inside your uterus, which is a common problem. Many cysts resolve themselves and Dr's only treat them in any way if it is too enlarged, otherwise the cyst will go away on it's own. Get it checked when you get home, I think you'll be fine, but intercourse will remain painful. I've had this before too. My only other concern is being that you said that it's to the right, the only other concern I would have is your appendix, so if the pain is occuring even without intercourse seek medical help immediately. Abdominal pain that is severe should not go untreated. So only if the pain comes after the friction of having sex does it suggest it's within your uterus and likely just a cyst. If pain during intercourse is your only symptom, don't stress it too much and enjoy your vacation. Sorry it came at such an impromtu time!

Marleynx, If he was penetrating deep, he could have hit your cervix. That is VERY uncomfortable for some women and will cause this type of pain.

Any position where he enter you from behind, where your behind is lifted up (like on a pillow) or where your feet are off the bed and in the air can cause that. And if it is the week before or after your period, your cervix are also low in your vagina.

Best of luck!
