I've been trying to look for what might be wrong with me. I've had pelvic discomfort for a while. When I have sex with my S.O. my pelvis gets swollen and inside my vagina feels bruised/sore like deep in, possibly by my cervix. Sometimes there is a strong bad odor afterwards, but not always. I'm also but have been since I was younger - having trouble holding it in when I have to urinate , my S.O. said someone else he was with was tighter and it makes me very sad and feel awful about my vagina, I have no children. But have had many sex partners before him. Help????

  • Go to GYN.... it is possible you have a yeast infection(for the smell and such) or Chlamydia or other STD...for yeast infection...common but very uncomfortable and may cause stinging and burning when urinating as well as urge to go when you don't really have to...you may also have some other issues going on...hormonal, firbroids or other issues that may account for this "tightness"....best to get a thorough exam....Joan

  • Its def. not a yeast infection. I know what that is, everyone womans had one myself included. Theres no burning or itching, nothing like that. I was thinking either Pelvic inflammitory disease or HPV, chlamydia is a possibility though I show no symptoms of that - doesnt mean its not there. Theres only that odor after sex - SOMETIMES - not all the time. Douching has helped for the odor, one time it didnt, and often it makes the pain/discomfort a bit worse. He doesnt give me a break either we end up having sex everyday. We didnt yesterday and I'm still uncomfortable down there. I feel he doesnt give me time to heal and he's pretty rough with me, which I think explains the bruising/sore feeling inside. I am going to the GYNO today, had the appointment made since last month it was the soonest one I could get. I just have no idea what it can be and its really bothering me. Esp. the fact that majority of STDs show no symptoms. Theres no strange discharge of any kind, no burning, no nothing. Just the swelling and bruising/sore feeling. And our relationship is a mess, due to stress and things like that I think my estrogen level has dropped dramatically and I cant get aroused fully, so its not "wet" down there when it needs to be for sex and that also makes it painful. It basically just feels like beat to sh*t down there.

  • DesertRose,I'm glad you are seeing a doctor today. Best not to let things go any further without checking it out. You certainly could be sore due to the lack of vaginal secretion and rough sex. I don't know your age, but that could also be hormonal. Are you near menopause? If so, that may also explain your lack of arousal, along with the fact that your S.O. is ***k and your relationship is a mess. You should stop douching. It's actually not healthy and can cause problems. I hope your doctor finds the problem and is able to help you. Please let us know what your diagnosis is. And sweetie, don't let anyone treat you like dirt. Find someone that appreciates who you are. :)

  • Hi DesertRose, You didn't tell us your age, which is kind of important when it comes to these female issues. At certain age, you are more predisposed to certain things. Pelvic discomfort, especially, during sexual intercourse, is often a sign of uterine fibroids. Fibroids are tumors but are benign and don't become malignant. However, they are extremely annoying with their symptoms: swelling of the abdomen, pain, pain during intercourse, breakthrough bleeding - just to name a few. Your other symptoms may but may not be related. You are right, it could also be Pelvic inflammatory disease as the symptoms match. It could also be Chlamydia. This bacterium initially attacks the cervix and urethra but when they pass to the upper reproductive organs, it may further cause lower abdominal pain, low back pain, nausea, fever, pain during intercourse, and bleeding between menstrual periods. It is extremly dangerous to have Chlamydia pass to the upper reproductive organs as it may cause permanent damage leading to infertility. It could also be Bacterial Vaginosis.Don't want to scare you, but pelvic discomfort may also be linked to one of the reproductive cancers: endometrial, ovarian, etcSo many possibilities. Anyway, I hope you managed to get your diagnosis and that it wasn't anything serious and you cleared it. Good luck with this or any other future relationships.
