Hypochondriac-SOS!

Ok, so I am 22 & have  been experiencing a sensation like never before & cannot not find the answers through my research on the internet. I have never posted on a forum before, but I figured what do I have to lose, hopefully I receive some good feedback because I don't know where else to turn in my penniless circumstances.

I have been with my current boyfriend for little over six months now & after the first few months I started to have weird pains & feeling internally in my vagina, while we have sex. When his penis goes in & out it, while in missionary style, it feels like he's hitting a "bubble" in the back. When his penis rub's it, it feel's like a bubble & I swear I can feel it popping.I thought maybe it could be cysts from us having rough sex because I know a friend who got them from masturbating with her dildo to hard, but Idk for sure because there aren't much ways to tell for those things without an exam & I don't have health insurance, nor the money to go get it checked out.

I tried to put it in the back of my head because I tend to get frantic about things being a hypochondriac, but just tonight I noticed a slight residue of blood after I experienced the 'Popping bubbles', can anyone PLEEEASE shed some light on what this could be, should I worry? am I ok? etc., before I freak myself out to tears!

My best friend has HPV & Herpes, so I'm super sensitive & concerned about getting an STD, since it happened so close to home.

Signed,
Can stop thinking about this every day.

Hi there,

this 'bubble' you are talking about sounds like your boyfriend's penis may be hitting your cervix - don't panic, it's not as bad as it sounds :)

Your cervix is at the top of you vaginal canal (about 6 inches in). Your cervix will retract when you are aroused allowing for more room for your boyfriend, if you are not aroused enough, sometime the penis can touch (or hit) your cervix. Your cervix is what emits the vaginal mucus and lubrication during arousal, and if it is hit it can bleed, but unless the bleeding is severe or you are in serious pain this is not uncommon.

I hope this calms you a little, researching "cervix" may explain further what I have said. If you really are worried and do suffer bleeding or pain it really may be best to check with your doctor.

Good luck.

I would suggest finding a place like Planned parenthood or a free clinic- they usually do discounted or fee STD and pregnancy tests. Most places won't test for HPV unless you get an abnormal pap smear, but you can ask for the rest of  the tests to be done. It's scary, but having that definite all clear is a really nice feeling.

Ok. Breath! I can't say I have an answer about these "bubbles". I am going to assume that this is your first sexual relationship? I seriously doubt you have a cyst that he is popping. Remember that when you have intercourse the penis enters the vaginal canal…and although rarely you can have a cysts within those walls it is rare. Secondly, your ovaries are on each side of your pelvic walls, there is no way he is popping any cysts there either. That aside, maybe you are feeling air bubbles from sex. That is more likely and is completely normal! YAY! :) On the STD subject, Im sorry about your friend. You are completely right to be concerned. Herpes is not fun! HPV isn't either however it is more common and about 75-80% of women will become infected at some point in their lives. That said, all you can do is use PROTECTION! i dont care how long you have been with the guy. Im assuming you are young and lets face it, boys will be boys. Just be smart and careful because the only person looking at for you is YOU! :) Dont freak out. Just be safe. Good Luck :)

(: thank you for the reassurance!

I found your feedback helpful & it makes me feel better that it may just be my usual self exaggerating. It is definitely not my first sexual relationship, but this is the first guy I've experienced this sensation with, hence the freak out. Anything new, especially in regards to sexual health can be scary. I'm not the best with protecting myself and i'll admit that because no one is perfect. I am actually quite disappointed that i'm not and at times hate myself for it, but what's done is done.

My current bf is the first guy I have slept with since I got tested, I was clear of everything, I made sure to get tested after I found out about my best friends circumstances. I guess that's why I'm freaking out, I'm so paranoid about getting something & I swore to myself, with conviction that since I was clean the next guy I would DEMAND  protection, but I didn't. After a couple no's I gave in, but please don't get the wrong idea of him, he is the most caring bf I have had by far, but that doesn't change the fact that he is a guy & guys will be guys. So hypothetically speaking, if he did give me something, could that be a source of this 'popping'? or do you still feel it is just air from intercourse?

I really feel like there it some sort of obstruction when we  have sex, but it could be the pressure from a air pocket.

I plan to get tested again, I just don't have the resources, so for the time being I'm trying to seek comfort from the experiences and advice of others. So thank you, truly, for consoling me.

Oh my, your fantastic!

After reading everything you said, it really puts everything into perspective :D
I have been telling him over and over he needs to "warm me up" because I'm more than often dry when we start & it hurts if he just tries to shove it in, plus I'm used to A LOT of foreplay.

Well, I will do that & see what I can find, but you feedback DEFINITELY made a difference, so thanks!

Appreciate the feed back, but unfortunately their aren't any truly "free" clinics in my area, I've gone to planned parenthood before to get tested, but it was minimally cheaper then other places. I will just have to wait till I have the money.

Glad to be of help :)

And damn straight he should warm you up! Ouch!

This is a perfect physiological reason for a bit of attention and friendly foreplay.
