I hope you are able to get to the bottom of it soon! That’s no fun at all. You mentioned tight pelvic floor, that might be worth looking into along with talking to your doctor about all your symptoms… read more

Does Anyone Else Have Extreme Pain With Sex?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

My boyfriend and I cant have sex because it’s so painful. I got reccommended to go to a pelvic floor therapist. Does that help at all?? I feel so alone in this, and I also have no sexual desire. Im currently taking Zoloft and my dosage just increased to 150mg. Could that be why I have no sexual desire? I feel so lost and alone. Any answer helps.

I also have had issues with libido and painful sex. I honestly just haven’t pushed myself or my body to do things I wasn’t ready to do, and tried to lower my stress levels because that also made it… read more

Butt And Lower Pain During Sex
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I just had sex for the third time ever but for the second and third time, I felt a sharp pain shoot from my butt and lower back. I didn’t feel the pain in my lower abdomen though. The pain was worse off when doing the doggy style. Is this normal during the first times you have sex or I actually have endometriosis.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

I have had a laparoscopy and I feel the same way. Doggy Style is a hell no because it hurts so badly. The only way I can do it without pain is on my back and I have to take it slow at first no matter… read more

Pain When Sexually Aroused BEFORE Sex
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I get pain when I'm sexually aroused I've never talked about it but my pain is a dull ache in my cervix and vagina. I guess I want to know if I'm the only one.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

You are definitely not alone in this. I got a lot of relief from seeing a pelvic PT and doing all the exercises and manual therapy she offered. Highly recommend findings good pelvic PT.

Deep And Burning Pain When Aroused
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

First of all, I have to say I have not been diagnosed with endometriosis! I don’t want to offend anyone but this is the only place where I found people who had the same pain as mine, so I hope I’ll find here some answers or at least someone who feels the same as me!! Every time I get sexually aroused, I feel like my cervix and vagina are burning or getting stabbed and my labias instantly go numb! Does this happen to any of you? Thank you, and please, do excuse me if I offended you in any way!!

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

YES! I've had this for years! If I'm not having sex I get horny dreams and wake up with an orgasm forming and if I don't get a cold shower quickly my whole pelvis explodes with intense cramps that can… read more

Is It Normal To Feel "turned On" Following Endo Surgery W Full Hysterectomy?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

So, last week (almost exactly 1 full week ago), I had a full hysterectomy, endometriosis excision, and removal of cysts. I have endo and highly suspected adenomyoisis as well.

I have never really been interested in sex. I've considered myself asexual because it just isn't something I think about and I don't feel sexually attracted to others. However, for the last three days, I have been having a lot of weird, vivid sexual dreams. Like, a LOT. Sometimes I'll have 1 or 2 days during my cycle when… read more

Pain When Aroused?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Before sex, when I'm beginning to get aroused, I get pain in the left side of my stomach, my vagina and also my bum (sorry for tmi). I've had the problem for a while but the pain feels more intense then it used to. Its at the stage where I really am not interested in having sex, because there's pain before, during, and then pain after. Does anyone else get this too? And does anyone know why this happens?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

I cannot believe I’m seeing this! I have had trouble with sex due to pain and anxiety. It was just recently I noticed that now I’m having pain just when I’m aroused.it is exactly the same as you… read more

Pain When Sexually Aroused?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've read that sex can be painful for women with endometriosis but I've rarely heard about women feeling pain when simply being turned on. I'm a virgin so I have no idea whether sex will be painful for me or not, but I feel pain most the time when I'm sexually aroused and I was wondering if this happens to anyone else?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

Yes! Before, during, and after. It's now to the point where we can't cause just being in there hurts..tried a few days ago, after 2 min of trying to get in and 5 min of hope of it adjusting I couldn't… read more

(Warning Possible Intimacy TMI)
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone ever experience pain for getting turned on? No physical touch, when your body gets turned on whether from something visual or audible or mental the feeling on getting turned on gets the stabbing pains I usually experience randomly or in spells. But it's been every time of late.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

I have this as well!! I thought I was the only one.. I wonder if it is related to our endo? Thank you for sharing xx
