  • No clue but you need to see a doctor about that. That is not normal.

  • My one girlfriend had this same problem and she ended up having a cyst. I had that problem and it was a torn ligament (didn't know you could do that) in my vag from "aggressive sex"! Who knew!?

  • Talk to your Dr. But in the mean time, have you tried using lubrication? Sex can be pretty painful when you're too dry.

  • Are you on the pill? I had a awful time having sex when I was taking the pill. The gyny had no idea why. It only stopped after I stopped taking it. If your using condoms it could be a latex allergy. Go see your doc, i would look at the birth control method you are using and maybe think about changing it.

  • It sounds like a herpes outbreak. It feels like very painful almost like chards of glass are going in against your skin.

  • I use astroglide lub. It's water soluble. I have uterine fibroids which can cause pain. I also have a cyst on my ovary which hurts but it's more of a throb and nausea. I'm not sure about PID (pelvic inflamatory disease). I know you don't want to hear this but have you done a search online for symptoms of STDs? It could be something simple but I'd still call the doctor.
