Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me solve a quiery.:confused:

For quite some time now I have been having pains just inside the entrance of the vigina. This seems to be occuring before sexual intercourse, without even being touched! It happens when I get exited, for example...... when there is a slight tightening of a viginal muscle. It feels like the muscles (just on the inside of the enterance of the vigina) are contracting. The pain is bearable although very uncomfortable, even leading to not having intercourse.
I have not had any sexual infection that I know of and there is no swelling, strange smells or discharge.
I have been to see my doctor here in spain, but as you can see I can not explain it very clearly in english let alone spanish, I reaching the end of my tether with it and I´m getting more worried because its happening more frequently lately.
I appreciate any thoughts ideas or help!!!!:(

  • Chelsea Yes I think there are devices that help and kegel excesises too. I don't know anymore than that, sorry. Hope the info helps, and you are able to talk/explain to the DR. Maybe your gyno on your next yearly, if thats comming up, would be able to help.

  • Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me solve a quiery.:confused: Hi Chelsea, I am wondering your age. If dryness is the issue and you are perimenopausal, do not let the doctors tell you that HRT should not be prescribed. Unless you are at heightened risk for heart disease, blood clots, breast or cervical cancer, get it. If you are 40 or over, in good health, but have low serum estradiol levels, 50 pcg per ml of blood and erratic periods, find a good practioner who might consider a low dose regimen of hormonal support (bio-identical). Or try over the counter low dose- 5 mg to 25 mg of pregnenolone every couple of days. I take only 5 mg every other day or so, and this does wonders for libido, lubrication, etc. Too much preg and you will experience acne and hirsutism. I wish you the best.

The pain was like your after sex, or just by getting exited and some days the pain was there all day long, I was living in ***l for 8 months thank God I went to see Urologys and he finally give me a name to my problen is call Intertitial Cystitis { inflamation of the bladder wall) for two months I been feeling like my old self, I am now able to have and enjoy sex with my husband who was very patient during 8 moths that we did not do anything the pain was so intense that I did not wanted to think about sex. Now I feel much better I still sometimes feel the pain, but it happens only once or twice a every two weeks when before it was there all the time. I hope my story helps you in some way. you mantioned that you are living in spain tell your doctor this Mi vagina me duele despues del sexo o con solo exitarme. I hope this help good luck

  • Chelsea, the pains you are experiencing have nothing to do with vaginism/dyspareunia. With vaginism, the pain is experienced DURING PENETRATION, and you experience pain WITHOUT PENETRATION, but due to arousal. I had dyspareunia, a mild form of vaginism. With vaginism ,in fact, any type of penetration is impossible, even with tampons. This happens because the vaginal entrance becomes very tight due to involuntary muscle contraction, and whatever in being inserted just presses on that ring of "skin" surrounding the vaginal entrance, causing the pain.I also sometimes experience the same type of pain as you when I get aroused: it is inside the vagina, it seems to be caused the muscle contraction, and it is not strong and goes away soon. This pain really feels like nothing abnormal, and it has been happening to me for many years though very rarely, so I just ignore it. And I never complained to doctors about it because it does not bother me, because it feels normal, and because I don't want the doctors to find something that is not there. I guess, it can be somehow related to our hormonal dynamics, and I think that in your case, it should go away with time.
