Customer Question
I keep crying after me...
I keep crying after me and my boyfriend have sex. I can't figure out why and it scares me a bit. I love him and he wouldn't do anything to hurt me but i was curious as to whether there was some sort of explanation to it.

Hi, thank you for writing. My name is ***** ***** crying after sex is not too uncommon. May i ask, do you feel like generally, you are mentally healthy and "in a good place?" It is okay regardless of your answer.Ii just want to know if this is isolated or if there is a lot going on in general in your life emotionally.

I've been pretty ill and run down, so I've had a kidney infection and tonsilitis all within the space of three months and my boyfriend and I have had a fair few ups and down but we're pretty steady now. But to be honest, the issues between us probably would have had a large effect on us, but I was doing this before we began to have issues.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
