From your symptoms it appears as though you are experiencing some uterine spasm that is radiating to the cervix and then on to the vagina. As the uterus should have involuted by now, after contractions cannot be expected to be the cause. As your doctor feels that you need to get a scan, you better go for it to clarify the situation. If at all you have some retained products, you will usually have persistent pain and/or discharge along with fever. Without any of these, it is unlikely that you have some retained products. Hope this helps.

Hi, how do I home remedy pain after sex, not during but after. It feels like my cervix was maybe hit. It has been close to 36 hours later and it is still sore inside, and feels like cramps. Do I apply a heating pad? What can I do to relieve this pain? Ugh, i have no money to pay, so I guess I can t get help. If I can t pay I can t get help, right?

Hi, I m 20 years old, lately I ve been having really bad periods, extremely heavy flows, excruciating stomach cramps to the point I can t continue with normal daily activities, the doctor sent me to have an ultrasound as this has been going on for nearly 7 months and my ovaries were slightly abnormal ( enlarged in size ). Doctors though I had poly cystic ovaries after a blood test to look at hormone level, this came back normal so was ruled out. Unfortunately I m stuck with this problem - although now after a brief summary, after another horrendous time of month, I m nearly off my period, although my vagina over the past couple of days has become very immflamed, red in colour, warm to touch and generally very uncomfortable? Being at University and not swooping doctors yet and being so far away from home, I ve become rather concerned. What should I do? Are there any home remedies to ease the pain?
