Painful intercourse

I'm a 22 year old woman who was previously diagnosed with a cervical ectropain. Sex is painful for me, so when I was referred to the gynaecologist, he sent me for an ultrasound as he said that the ectropian wouldn't be causing the pain. the scan came back clear, so i was then sent for a laparoscopy, which also came back clear. is it possible for a cervical ectropian to cause pain during sexual intercourse?as there is nothing else wrong i feel that this must be the cause of the pain, but when i asked to doctor again i was told no.

There are many other causes for having pain during sex. Vaginal infection, irritation, dryness, pelvic disease, uterine mass, and any cyst also can cause pain when having sex.

But i have had all the possible tests (swabs, ultrasound scan, laparoscopy) and the doctors haven't found anything else that could be causing the pain? Ive also tried using lube so it isn't down to dryness! It only hurts in positions where my boyfriend is deep inside me. can anyone help?

Hi, whenever I had tried to have ontercourse with my husband, during penetration that is sharp pain for me. Involuntarily I close in and not allow penetration. While trying fingering, one finger works however when 2 fingers inserted there is sharp pain, very painful. Is this normal? This was bothering and weighing down on us phychologhically too. I decided to meet my gyne and she prescribed lignocaine 2 % gel. However the pharmacy dint have lignocaine and gave me an option to use lidocaine hydrochloride. Here are my questions: 1) can use of lidocaine hydrochloride help me overcome pain. Can this be substituted for lignocaine gel? 2) what steps would you advise for me and hubby for psychologically fell better. We both love each other madly. But intercourse seem to bog us down due to my pain 3) also doc advice me to use dialator with the gel. How many times I can use this ok on me before trying intercourse.

Hello, i hope i can get some help with my question, so last night me and my boyfriend tried getting intimate, this would be my first time, i was relaxed and comfortable with him and felt as if i was ready, so we got in a position and we had difficulties trying to get inside, he pushed really hard but it kept slipping downward and caused a lot of pain, so we just stopped, it was disapointing so he just used his hand, and he was getting rough down there and i went to the bathroom in the morning and it burned to urinate,but i really don t know what to do about getting his thing in me, any suggestions or advice?
