Recently I started feeling a pain deep inside the walls of the vagina during intercourse. It started as a little area of the wall.. so it was painful if it was touched during intercourse, but I could still have sex in other positions where this part was untouched. However, now the pain has spread to the whole wall, and I cannot have intercourse at all anymore. Can anyone please help?? what can it be? just soreness or maybe something more serious?? I dont know what to do...I called a dozen gynos today and they are not available until a month from now... should I go the emrgency? I though so, but it doesn't really hurt unless there's intercourse!!! pelase some light please!!!!!!! thanks so so much

  • you might have a yeast infection, is there itching in your pubic area? Is there any white discharge at all?

  • Thanks for answering. I guess is not that.. my discharge is pretty normal. I guess it is some sort of soreness inside...I stopped having intercourse bacause of the pain, some days later I tried again and it hurted only in the same spot. Now I wonder wheter I just have to let time pass and let it heal or whether I should do something about it. I don't know how common these soreness are... and if they need treatment!

  • I too have these same symptoms that have started within this last year. Years ago, it was suspected that I had developed endometriosis after stopping birth control shots. At that time, my husbansd and I were newlyweds, the pains started to increase internally and I was unable to have any intercourse. Then came the lower back pains and stress from not knowing for sure. I soon decided to have laproscopy, but then discovered I was pregnant with our first child. Endometriosis can be corrected naturally, from pregnancy, as it increases your estrogen. I was in remission until after my second child. Then the pains started again slowly and I was able to manage the pain with over the counter medications. I discussed my possible endometriosis with my OB for the next year and kept putting off invasive procedures or birth control pills. I had, after all, tied my tubes and didn't want to start pills again. Increased levels of synthetic estrogen can make me very emotional. When the pains increased to a level of visiting my OB, receiving prescription pain medications and birth control pills, I then began to consider laproscopy again to see if I actually have endometriosis. I thought after 8 years, it would be nice to finally know what I am fighting. This past year, my pains had changed and started with one sharp area, during intercourse, inside. My cramping had increased not only during my cycle, but also while I was ovulating. So every two weeks, I was having high levels of pain for at least a week. My internal pains eventually spread to other areas and the last change was an internal warm/burning feeling. Well, having all this and loosing a connection with your spouse is a very terrible thing, so I finally grit my teeth and started birth control pills for four months. I was feeling much better, so I took the fifth month off, and quickly discovered that was a mistake. I took it for two more months and decided I was tired of side effects from my pills. I now only have an occasional cramping, burning or pain inside. I know the birth control pills helped as I was taking them back to back, trying to get my body not to ovulate. My body never took this new concept very well, as was another reason I had stopped. I still considered laproscopy for the next two months, but I was starting to feel much better so I have not proceeded with the surgery. I also contribute my remission to my health. My family has required a special diet change, as of Jan. 2007, for food allergies and their immune system. We use a lot of fresh organic foods including fruits, vegetables, honey, free-range meats/eggs and raw cow's milk. I have also been using a liquid vitamin to help my body absorb the nutrients better. I believe stress is always a factor to keep at bay. I search daily for a way to de-stress and often find myself reaching for my essential lavender oil, taking a hot bath, reading, taking a short walk or something. Most recently we decided to take a colon cleanse and would like to follow with a cellular cleanse. I didn't feel it would hurt to rid my body of any stored toxins. We are now planning on visiting a Nutritionist to direct as we stive for better health. I pray that I can keep my body healthy, so I don't ever have to consider pills and surgery again.On another note...my friend's wife was unable to get pregnant with a second child and asked a general MD if she could take out complex carbohydrates and processed foods to help her conceive. He immediately said "No". She decided to take them out of her diet anyway, and soon became pregnant. My biggest piece of advice is to be your own advocate and do plenty of research. You are already on the right path, just keep going.Blessings to you. KS~

  • im 23 years old and for the past year ive been suffering with vaginal pain during sex and its gotten to the point where i cant even think of having sex because i know how painful it is. ive also been on birth control since april 2010, it is now sept 27, 2010 and my symptoms are still worsening. ive been tested for my estrogen levels and even though the results didnt match the chart my OB still insists im fine and stupid for thinking i could have perimenopause. i have a history of hormone imbalances and nothing i do helps my pain. the emotional pain is by far the hardest to deal with. ive lost all sexual drive toward my fiance because i know it will leave him with false hope even though i know he doesnt mind because he rather me not be in pain it is still draining emotionally for me to "let him down". im at a lost and dont know what to do. the OB keeps trying to tell me im just affraid it will hurt so therefore it hurts... im sorry but thats a load of crap to me. im an optomistic person and whenever i feel up to the challenge to try to have sex i dont focus on anything and make sure that im not anxious or worried to prevent me from psyching myself out. does anyone have any suggestions on where to go from here? i was told by the OB that on a regular nonmenstrating day that my estrodiol level should be at least 20 and that the day before my period i should be no lower than 43. on a normal day im 11.8 and right before my period im at 19.5. someone please tell me how thats normal? i dont know what to do anymore. no one will or has helped me.

  • Even if it takes a month, make the appointment. I suffer from the same thing and I am going to make an appointment with a gyno in the morning. I suggest you look up Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. See if your symptoms are similar. You can also look up a few other possible reasons on links from the website. Don't put it off! The sooner you go, the better it will be for you in the long run...!

  • Hello so sad to hear about your problem. One of my friend was suffering from this problem. She tried natural supplements and they became very beneficial. These supplements are very beneficial for good sex life.

  • Two-thirds of women sometimes experience pain during or after sexual intercourse, but ongoing pain is never normal. Although sex might not always lead to a climax for you, repeated painful episodes aren't something you must endureAberdeen homes for sale

She said everything looked healthy...no odor, no discharge, etc. So her guess is vulvodynia or neuropathy. Basically chronic pain that comes and goes for unknown reasons. I'm starting research on this and I'll post back if I find anything new. I did read something about using lidocaine to numb the area during sex...he'll get a bit numb, too.
