Pain AFTER sex?

Posted by on Aug. 18, 2016 at 10:54 PM

Serious tmi but I have this weird burning after sex. I brought it up to my doctor and he blew me off, he said "You're fine, if it hurts bad enough you'll stop having sex." What the heck? Can anyone point me in the right direction here? My doctor has obviously stopped giving a crap.

I'll be 34 weeks Saturday, if that means anything.

I bet lube or coconut oil instead of lube may help. So5metimes being dry can hurt.

Oh, I tend to get the bed all wet when I have sex. Maybe I'll still try it though, can't hurt anything. Thank you!

I get that. I just chalk it up to me not being aroused enough, so it hurts.. I don't enjoy sex at all when I'm pregnant..

I don't have problems getting aroused, but if you don't mind me asking does it hurt very much?? Or just a mild annoyance? My pain can get bad.

Sounds like you need to find a new doctor. Any doctor who doesn't take your concerns seriously needs to be ditched.

Where exactly is the burning? inside? Outside? Everywhere? If you don't use coconut oil during sex you could always try it after.

Doesn't sounds like a big deal to me. I alway had minor pain after sex. All that pressure on your cervix and all that banging around. If you're worried tho I would get a second opinion.

I have a mild reaction to my dh's cum which worsens during pregnancy. It burns. I also have so much tenderness after I have sex that I have to sit on ice. I gave up at 24 weeks. I'm 34 now :( I miss it but it's not worth the pain.

Somewhere between the two. Sometimes I can stand it until he finishes, but I dont enjoy it. Other times it's just a no go.. I mean, I have lubrication down there, that's never an issue lol I just think because I'm not into it everything just like tenses up.. if that makes sense..
