Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

In all probability in certain positions you have an exaggerated vagal response. However, it would be wiser to get a gynecological examination to rule out any infection and get a PAP smear done. Hope this helps. Take care!

I recently had a PAP done, so that isn't the issue. Thank you for your response. My husband will be so proud of himself. LOL
