Is it possible for a cervical ectropian to cause pain during sex ?

Is it possible for a cervical ectropian to cause pain during sex? I have had other tests and there is nothing else wrong with me apart from this, so i feel that this must be causing the pain. however, when i asked my doctor he told me that it shouldn't be causing pain - but i have since done some research and found things that suggest otherwise!

It is simply Bilateral vertical laceration of the cervix which disrupts the connective tissue and circular fibromuscular fibres leaving the longitudinal fibres of the external cirvical muscle free to act unoposed, the effect is curling of the lips of the cervix upwards. Only per speculum examination is quite sufficent.  but it has to be differentiated from erosion of the cervix. But both the condition don't cause pain during sex. Don't worry!!!

Hello! My name is Lauren and I have a question. My husband and I had sex but I got a pain after he hit my cervix! It felt like bad constipation cramps and it was difficult to use the restroom! The pain only lasted for about 5 minutes and then was gone. We are trying to get pregnant. I have never had a pain like this before and was just wondering what it could possibly be! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Have dull pain on right flank side along the same horizontal axis of the belly button. Pain isn t constant but comes and goes as I walk or laugh and pain gets strong enough to cause me to bend down in an effort to minimize it....which works. The pain is like a punch and doesn t travel to leg.....just stays in right side.

Hi, I have been having trouble with my bowels for years, and I have seen many specialists. The only thing that was ever found is a non-specific colitis a year ago. However, I keep on having lots of nagging pain on my left side, and some days an intense shooting pain in the back, in the area of my kidneys. Do you have any idea what this could be?
