Question: Pain and tenderness after intercourse

 dawn11 - Mon Jan 16, 2006 7:16 pm

I am a 27 year old female with pain after sexual intercourse. Upon urinating after intercourse I feel small tears which burn upon urinaiton and my vagina feels bruised and painful to the touch for approximatley 8-12 hours after intercourse (making it impossible to have sex more than once a day). I have been married approximately 4 months, and the pain has yet to subside after intercourse. I have never felt this pain following intercourse with previous partners.

This sounds to me that you are either not properly lubricating or you have some kind of bacterial infection, go see your OB/GYN!!! have them test you. Something is definately off here...! The vagina is designed for painless intercourse so if you ever have pain its your body indicating a problem that must be fixed.

Be careful to get this checked ASAP it could be an STD as simple as Chlamydia (bacterial infection) or as far as HPV( herpes)=> which lies dormit for years and comes out when the vaginal are or body in general is under stress.

Good luck
