painful intercourse and irregular mensturation
I have been experiencing irregular periods and painful intercourse. I have a thirteen-month-old (my first and only child)and stopped breast-feeding gradually, finally stopping altogether when she was 10 months. My period returned about 3 months post-partum but my periods have been becoming increasingly irregular, with a pattern of having one cycle that is as long as 32 days, then another that is only 23 days.  It seems if one cycle is short, the next will be long.  Is my body still trying to recover from a pregnancy that ended over a year ago?  This alone would not have me worried if it were not combined with recent pain during intercourse.  It is a deep pain, during deep penetration. I have been experiencing stress, but this stress has been off and on for a year or so and has been some what alleviated as of late and so I doubt this to be a culprit.  I only add this as I read that if a woman is not relaxed and aroused, then the vaginal mucles do not relax and this might cause pain, but would this pain be of the deep kind?

  I am looking for possible causes and wondering if these two symptoms could be related and could be symptoms of a more serious problem.

Menstrual irregularities are common disorders of a woman's reproductive organs, including the uterus and/or the ovaries. Menstrual irregularities include a variety of conditions in which menstruation is irregular, heavy, painful, or does not occur at all.One type of menstrual irregularity happens when a woman's menstrual period does not occur for more than 35 days after the last menstrual period. This menstrual irregularity is called oligomenorrhea. Another type of menstrual irregularity happens when the menstrual period occurs less than 21 days after the last menstrual period.
