My name is Danielle and I am 32 years old, married with no children. Sometimes I feel bloated, tired and I am experiencing changes in my bowel habits (loose/soft stools). I also have history of abnormal paps (ASCUS) and the HPV exams are always negative and colposcopy results were normal.
Also, since months ago, I am experiencing painful orgasms, cramps like pain that lasts a few seconds after the orgasm. Even without penetration.
What is that? Can it be endometriosis?
Please help. I did a sonogram last week and my doctor said that I had a small cyst that it will go away by it self. She did not see anything else. Regarding the pain, she said that it could be muscle spasms.
Hi! You might also consider looking at the sexuality and relationships forum.
I think it is entirely possible that you have endometriosis or maybe pelvic adhesions (scar tissue) causing your symptoms. The only way to find out for sure is laparoscopy which is a minor surgery. (Endometriosis and scar tissue don't show up on ultrasound unfortunately). So I would first ask my patient if the problem is frequent enough and painful enough to consider surgery, and if she said yes--I'd take a look in there.
One thing to try might be 200-600mg of ibuprofen 30 minutes before intercourse--How ROMANTIC! But it might help!
