Posted on Wed, 22 Aug 2018
Question: Hi. I'm 38 years old and have been having excruciating pelvic pain for years. I have been through many surgeries and tests with no relief. I've had an endometrial ablation, hysterectomy leaving my ovaries, another surgery to remove my ovary and appendix, and just yesterday a cystoscopy. My pain is usually after sex and lasts for days. It's debilitating. I'm getting very frustrated and depressed.

Brief Answer:
Pain related to recent sexual activity.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Pelvic pain can be due to many reasons.
It can be due to gynecological problems or also urinary problems.
It can also be just due to trauma after intercourse.

I suggest you to do the following examinations for a proper diagnose:
-a blood test
-an urinalysis
-an ultrasound
-a colposcopy

Meanwhile I suggest you to use a painkiller for the pain such as Ibuprofen.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have had all of these things done over the years, and non have given me answers. Is it possible that the doctors are overlooking something...nerves?

Brief Answer:
Nerve condition is unlikely to be the cause.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,
Pelvic pain can also be due to nerve conditions as well but this is very rare.
Due to the fact that your pain is related with the sexual intercourse I think that it is a gynecological problem and I strongly recommand an ultrasound and a ct scan for a better diagnose.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
