painful sex

You need to go back to your doctor-please.

It is very scary to have things hurt-and your doctor needs to find out why. Mine was very painful, and the doc told me it was because when he did the vaginal repairs for the rectocele that he stitched things up tighter because he wanted to prevent prolapse of the bowel again, and also my vaginal wall had pulled down into the area of repair at the entrance of the vagina. He did silver nitrate treatments and then he did do something to stretch it at two post op apppointments, then said it was all healed. He said with intercourse and lots of lubrication it would stretch out over time. So I just put up with it for several times, then it was better and finally ok.

But the only reason I did that was because the doc told me what to expect and why it was happening to me. If I wouldn't have know the reason I would have been terrified, and also scared that it would be like that forever.

Please go in and check it out-it could be granulation, stitches that are infected, a yeast or bacterial infection, some other prolapse-anything. You won't know until you are checked out.

And a great for you-it is pretty disheartening for now.

Yes, I have. It felt like a warning: don't go any further!!

I decided to wait a week and use even more K-Y jelly. It's probably something like PrairieLakeLady's explanation.

Have any of you experienced painful intercourse or have painful intercourse?

I have had terrible pain and burning with intercourse. I was dx with vulvodynia. The kind I have is worsened with any kind of pressure to my vulva. It's the worst in a horseshoe shape on the opening of my vagina.

I've had several uti's and yeast infections since surgery too and those really cause a lot of burning and pain as well.

I'm sorry you are having this. I am really struggling emotionally now. It is a relief to know why it's painful, so please do seek medical attention and find out why.

I was prescribed a lidocaine gel to apply to the area 30 min. before intercourse........how's that for spontneous!! It helps, as does ample lubrication. I also take 1 codene and two glasses of wine.

I thought my 5 months PO I'd be as good as new. I just feel beaten down with so many problems since.

I hope your partner is understanding. I tried to hide the pain from my dh because when he found out the fibroids were hurting me he didn't want to *hurt* me and then HE got all psyched about that!! He has been very understanding, but I just hate that I'm defective AGAIN!

I thought it would be so much better than this

I had a vaginal hysterectomy on Jan 29th 2004, reason for was that I had fibroids, was bleeding constantly, was anaemic and found out latterly that my 'bulky' womb was actually a double headed one. For the first 3/4 months I felt ok, tired and weak but ok, then the jioint pain started with me being unable to rise from a chair without help or straighten up fully. The best releif was lying down but even that was painful. I was told I had a blocked bowel and investigations began for that.These past 6 weeks however have been the worst, these flashes are mega! I am so irritated with everyone, I don't go out of the house because of the dizziness, sweats and what could so easily become road rage! I haven't worn much more that a dressing gown for weeks, even Christmas dinner because when I get hot, I really get hot and it's the easiest thing for me to slip off. Tell me how long do I have to do this for? and is there anything I can do or take to ease these symptoms. As you can see from the time on this message insomnia is another problem.

Would love to hear a cheery thought or two, thanks

Have any of you experienced painful intercourse or have painful intercourse?

During intercourse I don't have pain. It's the aftermath of having it is causing me strife! Only my 3rd time out and my DH was eager to me to be on top. That was my favorite too until my problems and cramps so haven't done it in ages and was still very nervous to try. Like it would be too much penetration or something!! So during and right afterwards all was okay. But by the waking of the next day...and now 2 days after I am still sore.
It's like right on the inside wear my cervix should be? Maybe I over pulled that area. It felt different during and wondered was I missing the cervix part? But now I have the pulling feeling when I pee again and the twinges of pain in that area still! I can't get in to see my doc again until the 21st. I had to cancel my original appt scheduled yesterday (Wish I really could of made it!! Had car issues).
