I had a hysterectomy about 6 months ago and now I am having lower abdominal pain and it really hurts after sex what could be wrong?

Need exam: Lower abdominal pain and pain with intercourse that didn't start until 6 months after your hysterectomy is unlikely to be due to the hysterectomy.

While possibly not related at all, your gynecologist should evaluate this initially, with a physical exam and ultrasound. This could be a problem with the uterus (recurrence), the ovary, adhesions from surgery, urinary tract infection or a gastrointestinal issue. ...Read more
