Painful intercourse? Red_Haired_Babe 1 child; 3 angel babies; Arizona 802 posts

So lately for the past week its been painful every time we have sex, I have no idea why. We aren't doing any new posittions that might make him go deeper, but it just keeps feeling like hes hitting my cervix over and over again. I try to bear with it, but sometimes it gets so bad I have to fight crying. And also what feels I think is my ovaries have been hurting really bad (like, where they are supposed to be at is hurting) but either sharp pains or a dull ache. Any suggestions on what it might be? I was thinking maybe its a cyst, but it hurts on both sides..

Could that be endometriosis?

Quoting Noelles Mama:" Could that be endometriosis?"


I have endometriosis, and this is exactly what it feels like. Are you about to start? My symptoms would start about 2 weeks before AF showed up, and last until it was over. Ibuprophen and heating pads will be your best friend to reduce the swelling. Unfortunately, if it is, there isn't anything one can do for it, except get pregnant. Not even a hysterectomy (I am scheduled for one after I deliver), can guarantee a "cure", since it can spread to other organs.

Now that I think about it, I've gotten this quite frequently and right before my period starts. Last time it was so bad I thought I had a tubal pregnancy or something, but when I went to the hospital all they saw was that my mirena was half way out so they pulled it out and figured that was the problem. But I still had the pain for a week afterwards until I started my period... I'm due for my period in a week and a half... :(



Well crap. :/ sigh

It's horrible, I wasn't diagnosed with it until several years after giving birth to my daughter. I also have IBS, so figured, my cramping was because of that, since it also fluctuates while I am PMSing...



Wasn't until I was in the hospital with agnonizing pain, that a GYN came in and did an exam, shoved his hand up my crotch, and asked if that hurt. I said, "Well, yeah it does, you just shoved your hand up there!"



Started to ask me about my symptoms, and when they were relation to my cycle, he said, "You, my dear, have endometriosis. Most women have it, never know it, some women have it, and in small amounts, and its agonizing. Like I said, no "cure", but if your complaining a lot, your GYN can do whats called an Endo-scrape, (not a technical term), its what I had. He made an incision in my belly button, and used a laser to 'scrape' off the endometrium.



It grows back, so this isn't a cure all, but it helped. Now that I am pregnant, I obviously have no pain, but both have agreed, since I don't want any other children after this, and I am 30 years old, to go ahead and have the hysterectomy, my endometrium is started to spread and attach itself to my intestines.



Ask your GYN the next time your due for an exam, they can verify for sure, (since usually a laproscope or ultrasound is the only way to verify 100% if you have it), and not something more serious like PID.

This is what my Endo feels like. Turns out I had lesions on my cervix and pelvic floor and that's why it hurt. But it could also just be that your cervix is very low right now. During ovulation my cervix gets so low that I'm very limited on what positions I can handle. Only way to know is to see your gyno. Maybe see the dr around the same time the pain usually is that way if it is just a low cervix or even a cyst he will be able to see it. I also get cyst with almost every ovulation. The only way to prevent them is pregnancy or Bc. Same with Endo.
