Trying to figure out the cause of pelvic pain, getting nowhere!

Posted , 7 users are following.

For quite some time now ive been experiencing pain during sexual intercourse with my boyfriend. its quite a deep sharp pain in my lower stomach. at first the doctor gave me a weeks course of metronidazole to treat BV, thinking that may have been the cause but it wasn't. i was tested for sti's, had bloods taken, and still nothing. sometimes the pain can be in my bottom aswell but like deep almost as if its bowel pain, even just jiggling my bottom can cause this deep pain (sorry) its ruining my sex life and its really worrying me, ive been looking up endemetriosis and allsorts. i have extremely painful periods and do get clots sometimes (sorry again) going to try and book a dr appointment tomorrow. i just dont know what it could be, anyone else dealt with this and got a diagnosis? my biggest fear is not having children. i had a bad case of pelvic inflammatory disease a couple of years ago also sad would appreciate any input x

    This is not easy for far-distant ideas.

    Jumping to mind are:

    - adhesions (from your pid or endometriosis)

    - pelvic congestion syndrome

    adhesions are hard to see in imaging. Sometimes can be seen in some MRIs. (please search internet)

    but only proven via laparoscopy (same with endometriosis)

    pelvic congestion syndrome is easier to diagnose: ultrasound, MRV, CT

    best of luck.

    also exclusion is peace of mind.

    Hi, do not worry about that, I suggest you to go to the hospital to confirm what disease you got, and I recommend the fuyan pills to you, my frend vivian has the same symptoms and she is fine after take fuyan pills.Hope helpful to you.

    sometimes u have to have more than one swab to determin the cause as sometimes the bacteria thats collected dies before it gets the the lab some bacteria die within a short space of time your local hospital should be able to swab and get the samples straight to the lab with mabe a better change of collecting the bacteria alive just a thought
