Hi all, lately I have had what feels like cramps in my abdomen and down my thighs as I become aroused. Sex is always painful and I end up having the cramping sensation for hours afterwards. Even when I don't have penetrative sex I still have these pains. I was diagnosed with Endometriosis 4 years ago and have been on the contraceptive pill for years. I'm thinking that the pains might be caused by the hormones? It's ruining my sex life and my partner is very understanding but it's just upsetting. I might see about getting the mirena coil in the hope that this helps, with this and everything else that comes with endo. Has anyone else suffered the same? Everything I look up is about pain during and after sex. Thanks.
