    Okay, here goes. Me and my now ex boyfriend lost our virginity to each other. It was extremely painful of me, and we had to stop about five minutes after penetration. I had pain afterwards, and sitting down was painful as well. I am now in a new relationship and I really want to sleep with him. I love him, and he loves me, but I am very scared in case I get pain again. I bled for about five days after my first time as well. Is this normal?

    I have a pain in my right testicle, mostly, but not only when sitting. It feels as if the testicle is pulling, pain also eminates from above the groin area. I had this same problem around 2000, went to my G.P. who arranged an ultrasound at the local hospital, they didn't seem to find a problem. When I push hard above the groin area, there is some tenderness and occasionally a sharp pain.

    I developed piles in the last month of my first pregnancy and they flared up with each of my 2 following pregnancys. The best thing I have used is Anusol which you can get from your chemist, over the counter. Sounds mad but sitting on a rubber ring if you have one really helps to ease the pain whilst sitting down ! I will get better soon, promise !

    Hi girls! For years I've suffered with pain and discomfort, lower abdominal and back pain from sitting at a slant as it hurts too much - due to go for a laparoscopy soon - I won't be surprised if all the results come back negative as all the other screens etc have done. Was wondering if any of you have tips for sitting more comfortable? And how you sort out your throbbing pains? Painkillers do not touch it at all - guess it's time for another visit to the GP! Good luck girls x

    Hiya! I'm 17 years old. Ever since i started having sex with my boyfriend, over a year and a half ago now, i think i have been suffering from cystitis. It really gets me down. Some days its so painful i can't even go to work! The doctors don't know whats the matter with me. I've been on 3 different types of anti-biotics over the past year or so but nothing works. The only thing that does work is either sitting on the toilet, where i feel more comfortable, sitting on a hot water bottle, or running a bath and sitting in there for hours without any bubble bath in. I'd say on average i get one every month, if not more than that! I've found that the day after me and my boyfriend have had sex, it comes on. Then if i do one of the things i said above, it goes again. But as soon as we have sex again, it comes back on. For days, i put off having sex and my boyfriend thinks ive gone off him, obviously i havent, but it annoys me that he doesnt understand how much pain i'm in! I hope no-one has to experience the pain that i'm in every month!

    I had terrible knees from an early age (about 7-8) and remember sitting with a hoover nossel on my knee pulling the skin away which did relieve the pain for the short while - i also remember having great difficulty getting onto a bus and sitting in the back seat of a car. have you tried a course of cod liver oil? my knees also cracked repeatedly when I moved them.

I have tried everything from Tylenol prescribed NSAIDS. icing them heat whirlpool baths. Pain killers currantlyin physical therapy three times a week. I do the exercises everyday that therapy recommends. Still in pain. It affects every aspect of my life for daily chores to sitting on the toliet. Pain killers no longer work. Sleep is interrupted by pain. I am fed up. Tried everything I know to do & that has been suggested. Come to the point to were I feel I am just gonna have to live with this. Would love to get a job. But fear I will be unable to. Due to the fact that standing too long hurts sitting too long hurts. Just standing to do dishes hurts. Fed up.

    4 years ago I was diagnosed with overactive bladder. 3 months ago I developed severe pain after doing a wee and the pain got worse if I stood or walked. Eventually this led to soreness and pain and swelling and I was given painkillers. Now my only comfortable position is sitting upright in a chair. If I have the pain which feels like its in the urethra, I could go to the toilet again and again. With the pain killers, I hardly ever want to go. I have been told that I may have to live like this but I am now suicidal. I have no life. Painkillers are hurting my stomach and I hardly ever go out. Can anyone help or suggest anything which may help?

    Hi I have had a cold for about 4 days and now im geting over it but whilst I was working as a sculptor with alot of sitting down I have had this pain that would shoot down the left side of my penis then the pain would go then come back then go away again. The burst of pain only lasts for about 10sec and then I would be ok for hours even all night but it would repeat its self. Any ideas?

    I totally sympathise with you. The pain from a fissure is like a hot knife up your bum. I have had days where the pain lasted for 8 hours. Sometimes I think they could be healing as there is virtually no pain when I go to the loo and then within 20 mins its back. I had them about 10 years ago and they took about 6 months to clear up. Can't believe they're back. When you get the urge the pain starts even before you get to the loo. I found a shower after can help. Especially if you direct the water between your cheeks. Also sitting on a warm water bottle.

    I had a bladder cystoscopy and had a biopsy taken 21 days ago, i have alot of pain, discomfort, while sitting or standing. I aslso have the cystitus sensation but my GP has dipped my urine and negative. Why do i still have so much pain?

    Hi I had a bladder cystoscopy as well well actually I have had two! The first one I ha was when I was sixteen and I also had a biopsy taken too! I remember mine hurt for a few weeks after as well! It was a very sore/cystitis feeling! One thing I would recommend that has changed my life is cutting out all wheat from your diet! Now your doc will say its rubbish and one has nothing to do with the other which is a load of rubbish! Once you come off of wheat for a couple of weeks and if it's helping you should go and have electro dermal allergy testing it's none invasive and no needles are used! It's a really effective way of allergy testing! Another thing to do when you get a bad attack is to have a jug of warm water and pour it on your area down below as you go to the toilet it is very soothing! Hope this helps! I have suffered for over 10 years and I know exactly how you feel!! X bex xx

    Have a boil close to my penis and I put deep heat on it thinking it was gonna relief pain and go away quicker but instead I'm sitting with more pain than I can handle and I can't walk aswel. What can I use or should I go for medical help???

    this has only happened to me 3 times before but the most recent time, I was due my period and i took a severe pain in my stomach & got into the shower but had to sit on the floor and crawl out of the shower the pain was that bad, while I was sitting there I started dry heaving with the pain, before i started to stand up then i collapsed and blacked out until someone found me. for an hour after that, the pain was in my stomach and my uterus, it kept getting to a 9 on the pain scale and then dulling to about a 4. the pain fluctuated for about an hour until it went away completely and then i was fine again. Any idea why this has happened? it has only started the past year.
