Question: Pain right side lower abdomen during intercourse


 mina417 - Wed Jan 28, 2009 2:58 pm

I had a DNC about a year ago due to a miscarriage, and ever since the procedure I have had occasional pain during intercourse (maybe one in four times). Recently, they pain has increased and I can feel a hard "lump", about two to three inches long, in my lower right abdomen during intercourse right where the pain is radiating from. I only feel the lump during intercourse. The pain can sometimes last for hours after the intercourse, as a dull ache. The pain does not feel as though it is in my vagina, but higher than that, and specifically on the right side. There was a very similar pain in the exact location during the DNC procedure. I have not been to a doctor about this. I would appreciate any ideas/information regarding this pain. Thank you.

User avatar Hello,
I doubt this is related to the D&C but probably is coincidental that it occurred at this time. You could have ovarian cysts or even endometriosis - both of which can cause pain with intercourse. You should speak with your doctor about this.

Best wishes.
