Brief Answer:
Madam,seems to be vaginal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.Welcome to healthcaremagic and thanks for trusting us for your health related query.
Whatever symptoms you are saying seems to be vaginal infection.
Well,i will tell you what normally happens and what is the abnormal pattern.

When virgins have sex for the first time or even when couples have sex after a quite long time of gap then this kind of sensation is expected and its normal.Reason being that vaginal structures may not be relaxed properly and when male partner penis tries to penetrate this kind of sensation is triggered.This settles down with time.

But,when this continues for a long time then there is something fishy.This sensation for a prolonged period may be due to infection of vagina,cervix,uterus,in general pelvis inflammation.This doesn't settle down with time,it has to be checked up.

Well,with this small discussion you can try out my suggestions:-
1.Have patience,things will be sorted.
2.Ask your husband to use 2% lignocaine jelly to apply on penis,just 2-3drops before starting the process.Its available at nearby medical shops.
3.If there is no improvement in next month or scenario worsens then visit a nearby gynecologist as soon as possible to get checked up.

Good luck.Get well soon.

Hello, I was on Birth control( Ortho tri cyclen) for about 3 months and i stopped taking them a few days into the last pack. 2-3 Days later i had dark brown spotting and then 2 days after i had a full period that lasted 5 days. i had a heavy flow during these days (5/5- 5/9). Last week I ve been cramping and for the past week and a half i have been extremely fatigued. Not to mention my constant urge to pee all the time when I ve barely had much fluent intake. My uterus feels heavy and cramps come and go. Ive taken several at home hcg strip pregnancy tests and all were negative. What could this be?

I had a c-section 10 months ago. About three months ago I was having weak, fatigue , constipation, severe bloating , nausea, and urge to urinate. Had cat scan and all blood work came back fine. However they took my gallbladder out just cause they saw stones. I was then sent to my OB and she did exam and ultra sound of uterus and all was fine. At that time I was put on Metronidazole and began to feel normal. Now two months later after my period ended a few days later I had they symptoms appear again. Some days are worse than others.This time I also formed thrush in my mouth, and I have had brown stringy discharge for 8 days. It may help to know that in the last 28 months I have had 2 c sections and a gallbladder removed. I am at a total loss. I have been healthy my entire life. I am also 41 years old. Thank you for your time.

Within both ovaries are multiple peripherally located anechoic cysts more than 12 in numbers,each measuring 1cm in size with dense central stroma. there is minimal free fluid in the cul de sac.

4 weeks ago I had a hysteroscopy and laporoscopy under general anaesthetic . I had some endometriosis on the left side and this was removed. However, they also discovered that my left ovary has fused to my bowel. I will be seeing the consultant again in the new year, but just wondered what problems/treatment is likely to occur. My GP said Don t worry, we ll sort it out when it starts causing problems .
