Hi everyone. So roughly about 6 months sex started to really hurt and I got terribly sore, mainly around the entrance and just inside. (It's not a deep pain- although I do experience that sometimes as I suffer from endometriosis and polycystic ovaries. I've been with my current boyfriend for a year now- for a few months I was perfectly fine- no soreness but after about 4/5 months I started to get sore everytime we had sex. I have tried about 6 or 7 different types of lubricant and jellys that have made 0 difference. I went first to have a full sti screening and everything came back all clear. So I went to my gp who referred me back to my gynecologist (as I was being seen also by urology and gynecology for bladder and endometriosis related issues) it's not a matter of not being lubricated or wet enough, me and my boyfriend spend alot of time with foreplay to make things easier.
The pain is a awful burning and stinging pain (I don't have thrush) I've been avoiding soaps and irritants too. Have tried thrush treatments just incase, I even take painkillers before and after and have to sit in the bath just to take the edge of the pain. I'm due to go back to gynecology at some point where I will bring it up with them again. But it's absolutely awful. Having sex feels like I've been set alight and I can't stand it.
Does anyone experience this? Not deep pain but at the entrance and just inside? I'm considering trying a numbing agent cream as I don't know what else to do. I've sat with a ice pack on and also had a bath with warm water to soak. I take amitriptyline as a pain blocker, fluxotine for my depression, co-cyprindol for contraception- I don't use condoms and not allergic to latex or anything else.
Advice, suggestions help would be appreciated.
