I keep having pain in my uterus during sex and during the day. I also do not have regular bowel movements can that be causing this pain?
More lubrication: It occurs in 9.3 per cent of women. Fortunately, the trouble will often resolve if the man takes more time with love play so that the woman's vagina relaxes and her natural lubricant flows, and if the couple use one of the newer sex lubricants like eros or liquid silk.

I EAT 5 MEALS PER DAY, I TAKE PLENTY WATER BUT I USUALLY HAVE 1 BOWEL MOVEMENT DAILY. SOMETIMES I DON'T GO AT ALL THROUGHT A DAY. IS THAT REGULAR?
Yes: It is not necessary to have a bowel movement each day. In fact, some normal people only go once every three or four days, which is perfectly acceptable if that is their normal bowel pattern. As long as you are not having pain or other symptoms along with it, then I would not be concerned by your bowel movement frequency. Eat a lot of fiber. Good luck. ...Read more

Normal: That is normal. Not having a bowel movement daily can be normal as well. Your goal is to have a bowel movement that is soft, and easy to pass. It doesnt matter if it occurs daily or every other day. Continue with the fluids and fiber. Natural sources of fiber as fresh fruits and vegetables are the best. ...Read more
