I'm still having pain during sex and after, my doctor can't find anything other than endometriosis on my kidney, what could it be?

I'm still having pain during sex and after, my doctor can't find anything other than endometriosis on my kidney, what could it be?

Many things.: Even though endometriosis was only found on your kidney, it still may be in other places in your abdominal cavity, just not detected. It may be behind your ovaries or in other places not seen or microscopic. Ther might be some adhesions, and you might be naturally sensitive. You might have what is known as vaginismus, or contraction of those muscles from impending pain on sex due to the above. ...Read more

I've had pain during sex and endometriosis has been ruled out. I've recently had sex and bled afterwards. Is it possibly my ovaries that's the problem?

I've had pain during sex and endometriosis has been ruled out. I've recently had sex and bled afterwards. Is it possibly my ovaries that's the problem?

Hard to say: If endometriosis has been ruled out through laparoscopy then potentially the pain is from your ovaries. Occasionally an ovarian cyst can cause pain with intercourse. If a laparoscopy has not been performed then there still needs to be some concern that endometriosis or scarring can be present. Bleeding after intercourse is more of a cervical issue. ...Read more

I was on Cerazette for three months to treat endometriosis. Now I am feeling pain during sex again after a week. What should I do?

Surgery perhaps: It is likely if you have endometriosis that you have deep infiltrating endometriosis just behind the the uterus. This is possibly causing the pain with intercourse. You have tried birth control pills and while that often can help with the pain - but often not for the long term - it will not get rid of the endometriosis. The only way to really get rid of it is to excise it and this means surgery. ...Read more

I have v heavy bleeding and excruciating pain during my period, pain during sex and mid month light bleeding and laparoscopy ruled out endometriosis?

Menstrual supression: Obtaining a diagnosis can sometimes be a little bit difficult. However if both the pain and bleeding is occurring with periods then the answer might be to stop periods. You can do this by going on continuous birth control pills or getting an iud, for which 20% of people will stop having periods after the first year. ...Read more

You can reduce this by teaching your partner to avoid deep penetration.

I am on Nora- b progesterone only birth control, and he came inside during intercourse, also have endometriosis, period is 5 days late, pregnant?

Probably not prgnant: Progesterone only pills are notorious for giving you irregular, unpredictable periods. You shouldn't expect to have a regular period every month on these pills so a late period doesn't mean you are pregnant. If you are worried, you can do a home pregnancy test and make sure. If you are taking them correctly and haven't missed any, you are probably not pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more

Iud strings causing pain during intercourse?

Unlikely: The strings need to "wrap wround" the cervix to avoid your feeling them. If they are too long or too short, you may be able to feel them, but it is doubtful they would cause you pain. Have your partner see her gynecologist to check the strings and make sure the iud itself is where it should be. A simple ultrasound can determine proper placement. ...Read more
