Pain with sex ?: Pain with sex in pregnancy depends on the age of the pregnancy and other variables like infection. Fibroids will usually not be affected by pregnancy or delivery, and adenomyosis once accurately diagnosed, will not "go away" with delivery. Polyps are generally not painful, and will not always "disappear" with delivery. Pain with sex is frequent in late stages of pregnancy: check for infection.
