Last during sex with my boyfriend the penatrarion hurt more
Last during sex with my boyfriend the penatrarion hurt more than normal. And after when I was cleaning up I noticed a dark gory substance when I wiped my vagina. Is this something I should be concerned with? It was this only one time I noticed it happening for the rest of the night and day I was okay.
I am 30+ years old, been married years.
.I am 30+ years old, been married for 4 years. I was unable to have intercourse because it was too painful. After seeing a doctor about it, they said it could be vaginismus and they asked me to use vaginal dilators. I moved to as different state due to my job , saw a different gynaec and she did a physical examination and said everything was fine and I just needed to suck it up and take the pain or use dilators. She even forecfully did a pap smear (a very painful one). After about a year or so, my primary care physician also "tried" to do a pap smear and because it was too painful, didn't go through with it. she also just advised the use of dilators. After having had multiple examinations and failed paps and running around in circles with my dilators ( couldn't get far along with those) and occasional use of tampons ( as one of them said that would help) , after 4 years of being married and not being able to consummate the marriage, I decided to go to a new gyanec and get a surgery to " open things up". She did a physical examination and finally told me I had a "longitudinal vaginal septum" and it's no wonder that I could not have intercourse or a pap. She face-palmed at the fact that other doctors had taken a look and failed to catch it. She even showed me what she had discovered. Relieved that the mystery is solved but now I have to go through the procedure of vaginal septoplasty. She has ordered renal and pelvic ultrasounds before that. My questions are : 1. should i get a second opnion? 2. is the procedure safe? 3. are there other implications to a vaginal septum? 4. any undesirable consequences to the septoplasty? 5. will there be any complications to get pregnant or have a successful delivery? 6.any thing else I should be asking my ob/gyn or checking on?Hope other people can learn from my experience.Thanks.

Hi. I have 3 little lumps inside the entrance to my vagina and I am wondering what is the best way to get rid of them? I thought they may have been warts, but they did not hold the freeze twice and so I have been told they are papillae.

He said it felt like somethin was scratching him during sex and my vagina is really tight! Is this normal? How can I loosen up and make our sex pleasurable again?
