Question: Hi Doctor,
Im writing in behalf of my wife. Its just one month we are married. My wife is experiencing pain and burning sensation while having sex. She is not able to have pleasure while doing intercourse, which leads to loss of interest in it. Could you help us out. Is there any medicine she could take to overcome the pain?

Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

For a better advice you should give me answers to the following question.
1.     Is she suffering from any type of discharge? If yes, then what is its color and smell?
2.     Is there any itching sensation?
3.     What about you? Do you feel any burning sensation during passing urine?

I will tell you about what to do after having these information.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Thanks for the reply.
I did not understand what u meant by discharge.So far, no discharge other than lubrication. She doesnt have any itching problem. Only pain and burning sensation while having sex. I dont have any problem while passing urine and im fully satisfied while intercourse.

Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

I asked you about the white discharge.

Look, this type of pain and burning sensation during intercourse, is seen in some conditions like – inadequate lubrication and any vaginal infection.

In case of inadequate lubrication, this situation can arise due to increased pain sensation. It is the most common cause of this type of situation. What you have to do is just concentrate on the foreplay. It will enhance the vaginal secretion. In women, arousal takes more time than in male. So, just increase the time of foreplay and you will have the result.

Now, in case of any type of infection of female genital tract which is otherwise asymptomatic, this type of situation can arise. Mose common causative organism is candida. In this condition, your wife will experience white discharge, which may be curd like sometimes. This discharge is generally associated with itching sensation near the vulva. Infection due to other organism may occur which may get transmitted from you. As you have told that you do not have any symptoms, then this is not possible.

In my opinion, first you have to increase the foreplay time. If that does not give your wife any relief, then you have to consult with gynecologist for clinical examination in the search of any underlying infective condition and also for ordering required investigations and for further management.

Hope you have your answers. You can ask me if you have any more query.

Regards.

I m 15 and I have been having a weird odour coming from my vagina and some discharge, it is not painful and it does not burn when I urinate. It is not a yeast infection nor is it a water infection so I have come to the conclusion that it must be Bacterial Vaginosis. I am also not sexually active. I have taken medication that was prescribed by my doctor but it never worked so I decided to do some research. I found that inserting plain yogurt into your vagina and eating yogurt regularly helped cure it. Is this true?

Hello Dr, I am having a serious issue about being pregnant or having ovarian cancer. When I am ovulating, I always have pain on my right side. But lately I have been having pain on my left side and cannot sleep on my belly. I had my period on May 21, my DH and I got busy around my ovulation between May 31 and June 2. AF came back on the 14 very light for 2 days (not tampons or no pad but just wiping) and then light for 2 more days. I started with frequent urination very early (don't remember exactly when it started), had some cramps few days later, my boost are swollen (can see my veins now), having some side pains, pain in my uterus (hurt same spot as when I had my laparoscopy for fibroid and endometriosis) bloating, pelvic pain, back pain, tingling near belly button, tummy is hard, nausea, took several HPT test and all negative. Should I be concerned about ovarian cancer. Thank you kindly for your answer.

Hi I want to know if I have herpes
I have been fingered by 3 guys, all whom i presume did not have herpes (but I can't be sure). I am currently with my boyfriend, and he has had no previous sexual partners. We have had genital to genital contact and both have no symptoms of herpes and it has been 8 months since I was fingered by somebody other than my boyfriend. I get occassional itching in my pubic area, having had a yeast infection before, in other instances where i have noticed itching i have applied a hydrozole cream and it has gone away with a day or 2.

I ve recently been experiencing abdominal boosting/cramping not period related paired w/ a foul vaginal/ urine smell, there is no itching or burning or odd discharge . In the past I ve had persistent bacterial/ yeast infectios but these symptoms seem different. My husband has also recenty been experiencing tenderness/redness on his penis lasting over a week and this is worrisome. About a month ago we participated in a MFF threesome and we are concerned we may have caught an STD? HELP
