I started having pain in my abdomen about 5 weeks ago. At one point it was very severe to the point that it hurt when I would breathe, cough or sneeze and it was tender to the the touch,and my stomach felt bloated. At first I thought it was a bladder infection because the symptoms were similar. Lower back pain,abdominal pain, pressure when urinating, feeling like I needed to urinate after sex. When I would take a deep breath I would have pain my abdomen and a sharp pain in my right shoulder by my clavical. I finally went to the emergency room after 2 weeks of pain and they ruled out bladder infection, appendicitis, kidney stones and several other things through blood and urine tests, a CT scan and a pelvic exam. They couldn't find any reason for my pain. Since then my pain is not as severe but is still present. I still feel alot of pressure when I urinate, pain during intercourse and it is still tender to the touch, and occasionally bleeding after sex. My last two periods have been heavier, lasting for 8 or more days. It no longer hurts when I breathe but sex is still very uncomfortable, and after sex is when I feel the most pressure and it last for a couple of days after sex, whenever I urinate, pass gas or have a bowel movement there is an extreme amount of pressure. When me and my boyfriend first started having sex it was uncomfortable, I would feel like I needed to urinate in the middle of sex and would make him stop so I could go to the bathroombut usually nothing would come out. I thought maybe it was because I hadn't had sex in so long or because he is a well endowed man. Could he have ruptured something, is he going too deep? I should probably also mention I have 3 kids. I gave birth to my last child 9 months ago and he was 10lbs. Could this have something to do with it? I have never had any STD's or any serious problems besides a bladder or yeast infection. I am not on any birth control. I have always been pretty healthy and I drink about a gallon of water a day, I also take garlic pills and cod liver oil pills almost every day. Please help, any suggestions would be appreciated. :confused: Thank you!

  • You should get tested for Urinary Tract Infection and Pelvic inflammatory disease because you are showing syptoms of both of these infections.

  • I have similar symptoms and have been diagnosed with endometriosis. It has a range of different symptoms and can be genetic so ask your docter if there is a possibility you could have it. Dont rule out bladder infections either because they may not come up in the tests.

  • Do you have an episiotomy scar that is bothering you? Go back to your gynecologist. She can test you for vaginal and bladder problems.

An acid diet will also cause the yeast to be a problem...it is my opinion on your provide information. I am not a doctor but a fault finder.
