It's also possible he's hitting your cervix. It is uncomfortable or painful for most women. Is he penetrating deep? Try getting yourself on top to control the depth.

I feel EXACTLY the same way
I get this same feeling of a cut on the right side of my vagina during sex! It hurts so bad that we have to stop. It has completely interfered with my sex life. It's pretty close to the opening of my vagina but still inside of it.

Please let me know if you've found any answers...

you can email me directly if you'd like
(edited to remove personal information)
I'm really just wanting to find a reason for it Sad
I've been seen by three different doctors, even a specialist, and they didn't find anything. It never used to be like this.

is it a sharp stabbing pain? and after intercourse, does it continue to hurt for a while? or is it just pain during the actual friction of intercourse?

okay, this has happened to me. let me explain a little bit.
it's happened a few times now,

i'll be having sex, then a sudden intense pain will start happening in my vaginal area.. i can't say that it's on the right side.. but i DO get sharp side pains on the right in addition to the pain down below. it feels as if someone has stabbed me repeatedly in there. so of course we stop having sex, and the pain still lingers. it sometimes makes me nauseated, and lightheaded. sometimes the pain has been so severe, i can't move because it hurts worse.

i went to the health clinic and explained this to a nurse practitioner.

she said it sounds like a bladder spasm. you can look it up online and read about it if you'd like. she suggested to make sure you pee before and after sex.. should solve the problem.

Eh, there's a lot of different stories in this one. I don't know who's answering and who's asking questions. If you have something similar, please start a new topic so I know where to find your question! Smile

Pain during sex can be caused by a number of different things. Mena, I agree with pink highlighter, it really sounds like your guy bumped your cervix. Sometimes certain positions or angles aren't going to feel good and can be extremely painful. Remember what hurts and avoid these positions. Although, going to the bathroom before and after sex is also a very good idea too.

As for the other ladies, if you do not use enough lube then sex will be a little painful until the irritation or tears heal. So you'll need to stop having sex for awhile so they can heal. It's also possible that you have an infection, in which case you'd probably be experiencing or symptoms as well.

If sex is still painful then it would probably be a good idea to discuss it with a doctor.

Type of doctor to see for vaginal pain
what kind of doctor? An OB-GYN didn't help me. They told me to go to a GI - does anyone have any opinion about the type of doctor to see?

I have pain on the right side of my vagina. Feel it during sex.
Has ANYONE found an answer to these questions?? I was married 25 yrs ago. Had pain. Didn't like him, and painful sex. So stopped the sex. Years later had affair. No pain. Then bf for over 3 years. No pain. So I figured it was the way the husband had been 'doing it'. When had my paps done..nothing found.

Now...all of a sudden sharp pain on my right side. Excuciating on my right side about halfway up. Went to dr. thought she saw a small amount of infection. No std's. So took meds. Last night masturbated with vib/dildo and extreme pain on right side again. Because I was doing it myself...I could feel exactly where the pain was. It still hurts today. I am talking to a young hot guy...and it will probably lead to sex....I sure would like to enjoy it! Has anyone found out the answers?

It might be worth getting checked out for 'Lichen Scerosis'. I was misdiagnosed with all sorts for years before I happened to be examined by a specialist when I went to the clinic. It's a form of eczema that affects the vagina and the anus. To me, it felt as if I was being ripped open whenever I had sex, it can also be itchy, and sting. Eczema is when cells grow too quickly and so the skin is tighter than it ought to be - so when it's then 'opened' like during sex, it splits into a small (but very painful) cut. Think of getting a cut on your finger joint that heals, but whenever you bend your finger it splits open again. You don't get the flaking skin like you may associate with eczema, and if doctors don't know about it (so many don't) they will misdiagnose you. But it's fairly common. Look it up, and go see a specialist dermatologist if you can. Good luck.

Same problem, more info
This has nothing to do with the Cervix. I have had my guy hit that MANY MANY times and while it hurts it's nothing like this. AND BY THE WAY PEOPLE HELLO your cervix is not at the front of your vagina so that WOULD NOT make the front hurt, come on now. But I do have the same pain, on my upper left side where it feels like it's just inside and on top but not outside. Where I've thought it was my bladder but was sure it wasn't.

I have ICT interstial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome) I've had UTI's all the time. This is completely different. Certain positions are fine but when he's rubbing on it IT KILLS. And it is not a cut (ALTHOUGH) I have had cuts that felt similar! I don't believe it's a muscle spasm I have pills to calm my bladder especially FOR sex and this still hurts. I feel like there's something inside like a sore on the wall but I do not have any diseases.
