Irregular periods: It sounds like you have bleeding rather than a period from trauma to the vagina or cervix from the last night sex. If the bleeding and/or pain continue see your gyn for a pelvic exam to repair the damage and stop the bleeding. Irregular periods are very common. Infection of the cervix or hormonal imbalance or abnormal cells on the cervix can also give you similar bleedings. So, see your gyn. ...Read more

Pain during sex I have been complaining to my doctor and gyno. For years about my pain during sex. It's so painful it makes me cry. I don't even like sex now. I never used to have this problem. I always had an awesome sex life until the last few years

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. ...Read more

My girlfriend had burning when urinating and also bleeds. Frequent urination. No pain during sex.  Symptoms only lasted for a day.?

UTI: She probably has cystitis, which is a urinary tract infection in her bladder. Hydration and antibiotics are indicated. I assume that the bleeding is in the urine. She may need to see a urologist, depending on her age, her smoking history, sexual history, and urine culture results. If she has vaginal, she should see her gynecologist. ...Read more

Recently had a kidney infection. I didn't take all the medication. So now i feel a bit numb and pain during sex. Whats wrong its no longer fun.

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. ...Read more

Pain during sex, one partner, had sex last week fine. this time it hurt but previously I had yellowish water discharge and pain when wiping. UTI?

STD? Herpes?: Urinary tract infection is not a likely cause of these symptoms. An STD is more likely (even with only one partner). Chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomonas, and herpes all are possible -- especially herpes, with "pain on wiping" or if there are open sores. See a doctor ASAP. Also a good idea for your partner to be checked. Good luck! ...Read more
