I have vaginal pain after sex everytime I have sex with my partner. It hurts on the outside, NOT the inside of my vagina, and it swells horribly. It feels like it burns and then sometimes aches later.
Everything I\'ve read about pain after sex has nothing similar to my probem. I need help.
My parter and I donot have any STD\'s
I don\'t have a UTI
I use PLENTY of lubrication while beginning sex.
It lasts for 30 minutes to an hour everytime.
It is so irritated I cannot have sex twice in the same day.
*It is also kind of hard to get him inside of me without it hurting (which is where the lube comes in) but I think that might be because my vaginal muscles are usually a little tense.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the symptoms that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further investigations/evaluation. The chances of allergic reaction, infective causes, vaginal dryness, hormonal insufficiency etc cannot be ruled out. Consider visiting a gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on the examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes.
