Feeling bloated and lot of gas. Have sharp pain towards anus during intercourse. Serious?

Hi, about half a year ago I have started experiencing discomforts with my tummy: feeling of being bloated and a lot of gas, however my diet had not changed nor had my life style. To that musts be added that during vaginal intercourses with my partner I often felt a sharp pain toward my anus. All the symthoms went on up to date. I wonder whether I should think of something serious such as cancer.

Hello!

Thank you for the query.

It does not sound like a cancer. However, large intestine diseases can give such symptoms, as well as uterine diseases, ovarian cysts, abdominal adhesions (if there were any surgery done) or even endometriosis.
Bloated abdomen, gas, constipation, can be caused by bad diet (low fiber intake, low mineral water intake), medicines (Ca-blockers, antidepressants), thyroid problems, chronic bacterial infection, inflammatory bowels disease or partial bowels obstruction.
I suggest you to have some diagnostics. If you are younger than 50, stool tests, FOBT (fecal occult blood test), stool culture test, blood work, abdominal ultrasound (or CT ) should be done. Gynecologist consult and transvaginal ultrasound should be also considered.
In case of blood in stool or if you are 50 or older, colonoscopy should be done.

Hope this will help.
Regards.
