Chronic


Chronic or recurrent pain during, before or after intercourse is called dyspareunia. There are a number of possible physical causes. You mentioned a history of sexually transmitted diseases. One possible complication of sexually transmitted diseases or infections is pelvic inflammatory disease. There are a variety of other conditions such as enodometriosis which could cause pain during intercourse. If the woman’s genital area is not lubricated it could lead to pain. Some medications can cause a decrease in lubrication. You indicated that you developed this problem just prior to leaving your last partner. If there is not a change in your medical status, no injuries, no new medications which might impact sexual arousal or vaginal lubrication, no adverse reactions to new methods of birth control; have not had a baby recently, you are not perimenopausal etc; then it might be appropriate to look at other possible factors. A woman’s vagina becomes lubricated when she is sexually stimulated. If your partner is not aware of how to arouse you or there is inadequate foreplay, you might not be adequately lubricated prior to penile penetration. If there is tension in the relationship with your partner or if there is a lot of stress in general, that can effect your sexual response. If there has been a previous history of sexual abuse, even if you have been having satisfactory sex, it might create symptoms at a later time. I recommend that you give your partner feedback if there is inadequate foreplay or provide specifics about what you find stimulating. I recommend that the next time you talk with your doctor or gynecologist that you tell him/ her directly that painful sex is impacting your life and that you want to be evaluated specifically for this problem. It is important however, that if you want the focus to be on dyspareunia that you don’t bring it up in the context of a number of different medical issues. Hopefully, your medical provider will be responsive to your concern using this approach.

Pelvic pain sometimes, not really painful just irritating. Nothing else irregular, no pain during sex just annoying. Wondering what this could be?

Pelvic pain


Abdominal pain in women can be caused from the organs in that area consisting of your uterus, ovaries, bladder, appendix and bowel. The pain is sometimes difficult to differentiate between these organs. If it isn't severe, worsening, or accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, vomiting, etc., it may be caused by something as simple as ovulating, or stool moving through your colon.

It is likely you have it. About 30% of all women have endometriosis and with pain symptoms and a family history your chances are exceedingly high. I would recommend seeing a specialist and getting diagnosis and or treatment for your pain

Please see my previous response first. If your partner is able to ejaculate in your vagina, then this should not impact your ability to get pregnant.

You need to experiment with different positions in order to find the most comfortable for you. In addition consider a visit with a physical therapist that specializes in vaginal issues. She will likely be able to teach you exercises and positions that may be helpful. In addition vaginal dilators may be beneficial. All the best.

Need for examination


It is not feasible to provide a meaningful comment without physical examination and lab tests and imaging, if the latter are needed. Please consult your doctor to avoid further damage to your organs. Any bleeding should be taken seriously.

Go to doctor


sometimes, it is your mind feeling guilty and you feel that not taking all the antibiotics is causing the problem, or you may have a problem no associated with the infection. UTI are actually easy to treat and we usually over treat. Go to your doctor to see if infection gone, and have peace of mind. If the problem persists, then the cause is something else and has to be diagnosed.
