Question
Hello, a week ago I began experiencing excruciating pain during insertion when I have intercourse. It's so severe we can't have sex.
We were able to have sex while I was on the birth control pill, although I had no sex drive. I was on the pill for 2 years, 7 months.
When he tries to insert his penis I get a very sharp pain, not in my vaginal walls but it feels as though my urethral opening is being pulled in and stretched into my vagina. I do have a low sitting urethra and it sits right above my vaginal opening.
I stopped taking my pill on the 19th of July. At the end of my period I contracted a yeast infection in which I properly treated.
I am not swollen or inflamed, but it feels as though his penis is pushing my urethral opening into my vagina, causing a very sharp pain.
My mother had endometriosis if that information may lead you to a better informed diagnosis.
I did not suffer any pain while on my birth control but am now unable to have sex because of the pain I experience upon insertion.

Brief Answer:
Endometriosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. Endometriosis is most common cause for pain during intercourse.

2. Since your mother had the same supports this. You seem to have endometriosis.

3. This pain is unrelated to urethral location.

4. I suggest get an ultrasound scan done to check endometriosis.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Regards

Hello, I have been thinking the same for a couple days now.
What are my chances of being able to conceive if I am diagnosed with endometriosis, as well as treatment for pain during intercourse in order to be able to conceive?

Brief Answer:
Endometriosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If you are diagnosed with endometriosis, laparoscopic surgery can be performed to remove endometriosis.

If endometrios is removed your pain during sex will decrease and you will be able to conceive.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
