I am desparate and scared. I have been experincing stabbing vaginal pain eversince shortly after my second child was born 3 years ago. I complained at my 6 week appointment and they told me to give it time. It has gotten both better and worse as time has gone on. When ever I do any excercise or walking for a moderate period of time the next day I get these excrutiating pains stabbing in my vagina. I also have lingering pee problems. If I have to pee I need to go immediatly or I have an accident. I pee often.

I finally got an ultrasound. The only thing it showed was an enlarged uterus. My GP has made a referral back to my ObGyn. I am terrified that something serious is happening to me. The appointment is not for 2 months.

If you have any insight let me know.

  • Obviously I'm not a doctor but I think that if it were something "serious" or life threatening that after 3 years it would have killed you by now, or there would be something showing up that even doctors couldn't miss? :confused:That said I have been through 9 months of constant abodominal pain that was misdiagnosed as endometriosis, but when I finally convinced an OBGYN to do a hysterectomy he found two huge fibroid tumors in my uterous. You mention that the ultrasound showed your uterus was slightly enlarged, you could have something similar or I know one thing that was considered with me was that the inner lining of the uterus was growing thicker each month instead of sloughing off with your monthly period. This is supposed to be very painful. I've also heard of a diagnosis called "acute abdominal pain" that is used when doctors can't figure out why you are hurting. You need to put pressure on the medical community to get you an answer ... the squeeky wheel does get the grease ... keep the pressure on them and they will help you just to get rid of you!!!
