    Aparantly its due to the glands its verry comen aparently but is not a sexual transmited desise see your dr for creams and treatment

    I have a few concerns that I don't know if I should worry about or not. Please help me. -Painful Intercourse. Me and my boyfriend can't have sex because it hurts me so bad. It burns very bad. And it's gotten worse. I am not too dry and neither of us have any STDs. -Bleeding during Intercourse. I bled really bad a few times very randomly. One time it was just him fingering me. Two times after that was during sex. Not to rough or anything. Wasn't related to my period. -Painful Urination. When I pee it hurts. But it's not the urinating itself that hurts towards the end of my pee there's a needle sharp pain that comes from my vagina. Not every time but most of the time. -Bumps in vaginal canal. I don't know if this is normal or not. I've read that it is but also that it could be a concern. Both my boyfriend and I have felt bumps in my vaginal canal. They are decent sized bumps and are higher up in the canal. (We just discovered this recently which is why I'm worried) -Vaginal Discharge. since I was younger I've always had discharge. Don't know if it's normal or not, assuming it is. But lately it's a lot more and it has a sort of yellow tint and a strong odor. -Pain in ovaries. I have been having bad pressure pains near my ovaries. Sometimes it's sharp pain. -Frequent Urination. I have been peeing a lot! Like 5-10 times a day and that is not normal for me! I'm not sure if all these symptoms are related but all I can think of is cancer cancer cancer. And id like to get this out of my head. Should I be worried?

    I would see my GP as soon as possible. You seem to have a lot going on and are very worried about it. Even just to put your mind at rest you should see someone...And don't be palmed off. Be assertive tell them all of your symptoms and ask lots of questions. No one should have to endure all of the discomfort you describe, but if you don't have it investigated you will just continue to worry. Please see your GP soon and let them put your mind at rest. Thoughts are with you.

    My vaginal entrance feels sore with any form of penetration, not even able to use tampons.. It gets worse if I have sex and the burning often worsens after urination (it feels less painful if I drink a lot of water and stay away from alcohol or other drinks), also the burning after urination lasts for about 20-30 minutes. I have had UTIs and taken antibiotics and now I test negative for any bacteria that causes UTIs, I have also taken treatment for thrush however I am sure it is not thrush due to the lack of itching. these symptoms have occurred for months now and also appear to worsen during my period, I am also only 18.

    Hi, I have red pin sized spots on my penis tip, they don't hurt or cause me any physical trouble or pain and I have no trouble with urination. They appeared in one spot and a few near it, some disappeared and then I tried masturbating the other night and they showed up in a different spot. Anyone have any ideas?

    you can have chrons in any part of your body so i would get checked out properly before you make any decision bout leaving the army yet x

    Hi. I have recently been diognosed with early signs of mild crohns. The only symptom that i had was vomiting. Every day for ten months..vomiting..after the first couple of months i was vomiting anything up to ten times aday everytime i ate or drank. No pain or aches other than thoses aches caused from being sick ie sholders aching slight headaches etc. No problems going to the toilet and it didnt seem that it was anything specific causing the sickness. . I had previously taken part in a crohns research test as my mum has crohns. My sister and i both had a capsual endoscopy..my results came back that there were ulcers in my small intestine..this was not to say it was crohns they said but could do further tests.. which i meant to look into but didnt get round to it.. afew months later i started to be sick daily..looking back on it i had been sick every now and then but at the time didnt think anything of it. After being referred to the gastroentology (may have misspelt that!) I had many tests common to looking for crohns.... throat endosopy, colonoscopy, barium meal, xrays, mri scan, ultra sound.. the endosopys were meant to pick up any signs of crohns especially in the first part of the large intestine i believe, where biopsys were taken but all the results came back clear. Eventually i had another capsule endoscopy and the results came back that i had crohns ulcets in my small intestine that were not picked up by any other tests. Ive gone a long way around telling you but i have found that the "standard" things about crohns that you hear are not the only signs of chrons..there are so many different symptoms and levels of severity. I would suggest you get referred to a specialist..and when you book in for the appointment , if you can,ask to see the specialist themselve and not one of their junior doctors. As good as the junior doctors are..the senior doctor will have a greater knowledge. If they send you for tests, ask also to have a capsual endoscopy, these take 3 radial type pictures a ssecond for 12 hours!! So the camera pretty much collects a video from top to almost bottom.. I hope you get sorted.. and i hope this many help you even if a little. If you get pushed aside slightly call the doctors secretary and pester pester pester! Call for cancellations if you can. I didnt like to make a pest of myself..but if id of pestered before i had of got further quicker. Either way you need to get it diagnosed and treated or dissmiss it. Hope you get to the bottom of it.

    when i go to the toilet it seems fine to begin with, but at the end of urination (while i'm still urinating) it hurts. it's been going on for weeks and i've recently noticed blood at the end of urination when it hurts. i'm pretty worried, does anyone know what it might be? my doc. took a wee sample and said it was a uti but it's still causing me problems. Help!

    You could have a narrowing somwhere along your pee tube (cant remember what its called). But i went to my doctors for AGES!!! they tested me for sti's, liver diease everything you could amagin so i left it and the pain and the blood wer still there soooo i went back and demanded somthing was done about it instead of testing me for the same things over and over again....they sent me for a cystoscapy(?) which i basically...they shove a telescope/camera up your pee hole and check for strictures/narrowings. I had one and the choped it open and heypresto!!!!!! Problem sorted!!!! =D

    My pee is normal colour.. light pale… apart from some of the mornings, 1st urine in the morning is bit dark coloured. AT work I go to loo very frequently, every hour, the amount of urination is normal, I don’t find any difficulty in urination. But I feel as if my blabbed gets filled quite quickly, I don’t feel any pain, but its just frustrating some times going for pee every now and then, during the day. I can sleep without going to toilet for 8 hrs at night but then 1st thing I do in the morning isgot to toilet as my bladder is so full. Is this normal! Can you please comment.

    I am 24 and have been having painful urination for about 7 years now. When this all began I saw my GP who did tests. This sharp, stabbing like pain when passing urine would happen monthly and each time a MSU was completed with mixed results. After about 3 years of suffering I was sent to a urologist, nil found so a preventative course of antibiotics was started. I took a small dose of antibiotics every day for 2 years. I didn't want to stay on antibiotics for the rest of my life. So when I changed cities and spoke with a new GP, I was encouraged to stop my antibiotics. Since then I haven't had as many periods of painful urination however more recently it has started up again. I use the cystitis sachets, warm baths and hot water bottles to relief symptoms along with pain relief. However I have found I experience painful urination within a day or so following intercourse, and intercourse itself can be extremely painful. I am yet to go speak with my GP. I have been with my partner for the past 7.5 years and have been finding the thought of intercourse frightening due to the the thought of suffering afterwards. I have read around and ensure I go to the toilet Pre-intercourse, washing, urinating afterward, etc. but nothing seems to work. I need help as I am worried our relationship may suffer due to the symptoms I experience now following intercourse. Does anyone have any advice??

    Try Waterfall D Manose - also called Sweetcure. Just Google it to find the website - it is refined in Yorkshire. Sweetcure is a white pure powder - a natural sugar that picks up the bacteria in the bladder and soothes the burning too. I had cystitis constantly but it stopped within 3 days of taking a teaspoon of Sweetcure daily in warm water. I still take a teaspoon at bedtime to keep cystitis at bay. Like you I had been prescribed antibiotics - but they gave me thrush so i was in constant discomfort. Sweetcure saved me - I wish doctors would prescribe it.

    My husband has been having a difficult time ejaculating, a hard time keeping an erection, difficulty keeping a steady urine flow. He has to struggle pushing to urinate and the flow will stop and go, with the same struggle each time to restart the flow of urine. He has a few of the the symptoms as far as frequent night urination. I've heard a lot about the problems a prostate can cause with urination. ..but does it also cause the issues I've mentioned sexually

    My gynae polyps and painful periods hid another condition of Interstitial Cystitis. After laparoscopy and hysteroscopy I was told the constant excrutiating pain was in my head and to try relaxation etc and to stop 'obsessing'about my pain! After 3 years when the pain eventually manifested as burning on urination I got a bladder op which found the Insterstitial Cystitis. The suffering I have been through I dont want others to expeience the same. This cystitis is not treatable with antibiotics and shows negative for infection. While I was not treated properly it left me suicidal as it was relentless. The clue came when I couldn't pass urine.

    Debbie i think if you prolapse is classed as servere it is different, uterine prolapses from what i have read seem to be more problamatic than cystocele, do you remember how yours was graded??? Mine has been deemed as moderate cystocele. I think i will try get a second opinion from a women consultant, maybe more sympathetic, as over time prolapses tend to over increase in size! Can i ask how if the results from your surgery have been worthwhile going through with it? Thanks for the comment Mandy, i dont see why you cant use the cones, as they are are used to strengthen the muscles i think. My physio seemed to think this weekend that i may have an over active bladder, as she thought my frequent urination very bad for just prolapse. Does anyone else really suffer with frequent urination from their cystoceles???

    Hi Baz, did your Doctor/Urologist do the PSA tests because they didn't even offer or mention them to me before they even suspected Prostatitis. All I had was the DRE test which I'm sure triggered off other symptoms as well. Now that I have confirmed Chronic Prostatitis I asked about the PSA test and all I got was they wouldn't be worth doing because they would be high due to my chronic prostatitis!!! My symptoms are still numerous and vary from time to time: urinary frequency, urinary urgency, pain in the pelvic area aggravated by long term sitting, pain or discomfort during or after ejaculation, discomfort with aching pain radiating from the rectum, feeling of golf ball size mass in the pelvis or rectum, discomfort/pain in penis, supra pubic pain, pain between scrotum and anus radiating to tailbone, lower back pain, groin pain, pain during urination (disuria), frequent urination at night (nocturia), reduced stream, incomplete emptying of the bladder, hesitancy, discomfort or relief after bowel movement, clear discharge from the penis during difficult bowel movements. Secondary to the persisting symptoms, anxiety, depression, loss of self-esteem, loss of sex drive and social withdrawal can develop. Had antibiotics: Ciprofloxacin, Doxycycline and put on Flomaxtra. All didn't seem to work and made me feel worse; being light headed,nauseous and even blacking out on the odd occasion. No bacteria or blood has been found in the urine test. Just on pain killers and taking Saw Palmetto at the moment. I've had CP/CPPS (chronic prostatits, chronic pelvis pain syndrome) for 10 months now and my urologist mentioned he wants to do a Cystoscopy and prostate drainage for further investigations. Having to go part time at work due to symptoms, Damn this PROSTATITIS!

    Hey. I am 20 years old and I recently went to the doctor for pain in and around my vaginia. I thought maybe it was a yeast infection but the doctor could not do a pelvic exam becauseni was on my menstrual cycle. She gave me the pills for bacterial vaginitos because she was sure that is what I had. I did have unprotected sex with someone but they have swore they dont have anything. This last week I feel better but I went and got tested the doctor said it looked like bv. Now I am waiting for my results. How long does metronidazole usually take to fully clear it up? Ive been on it for 5 days and I still sm having pain at sometimes during urination and during the day. Any feedback would be awesome!

    When I was younger 18-19yrs old I had the same problem. Back then I was a virgin so I knew it couldn't be STDs. After a while of pain and discomfort I went to the ER. Outcome was Epididimitis. Bacteria in the testicles caused by daily events (urination, masterbation etc.). Anyone could get it. Antibiotics can help but can return. See a doctor just to be sure.

    I have not been sexually active for months and was just recently checked for STDs and a UTI because i had painful urination... all testes showed there was no problem but the pain is still there!!! has anyone had a similar problem? I drink loads of water and juices and and all around healthy other then this...

    Pain or burning on urination is a classic symptom of cystitis. I have had these symptoms the last week or so, and it is worrying as I am male, have Diabetes Mellitus Type 2, along with itching, nausea, bladder and back pains, and a constant urge to go to the toilet. I am seeing my doctor today to get it checked out, but for those also with these symptoms, you have my every sympathy-because it can be agony!

    If you havent been using condoms, you might want to see your GP to test for chlamydia and various STIs. However, it might be something as common as cystitis (inflammation of the bladder causing burning during urination) or thrush (overgrowth of bacteria candida albicans) which are very common and uncomfortable (!) but not necessarily caught through sexual activity. Pain during sex may also be due to insufficient lubrication or stress.

    Semen allergy must be much more common than doctors think, simply because us women are too embarassed to report it. I'm positive I'm allergic to semen. As soon as my partner ejaculates inside me, I get the worst burning pain that last for hours, and urination makes it worse. When we use condoms, or when he ejaculates outside of me, there are no problems. What else could it possibly be?
