    For the past couple of years I have been experiencing pain on urination during my period and for up to a week afterwards. I have taken urine samples to my gp but they come back normal. Other symptoms include more frequent than normal urination and a burning pain but also a pain sort of in the area of my bladder. I am 34 years old with no children.

    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.

    I'm having a problem with sexual arousal as it is extremely painful. It feels as if the clitoral area is burning and stining. I have had STI screening and had a negative result. I have also discussed this with my GP who suggested that perhaps I had vaginal dryness but this is definately not the issue as I have regular discharge and have to use panty liners for protection on a daily basis. I'm only married for four years and our sex life is already dead due to my problem. Please help.

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

    Hi I'm 19 and although I'm not a virgin you can split the skin "down there" by simple things such as wiping a bit too hard once in a while although u might not realise it at the time...I wouldnt worry about it unless it gets worse or very sore, just be a bit more gentle with yourself. From personal experience it goes away on its own quite quickly. Hope that helps!

    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 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.

    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???

    i have been uffering from pain during intercourse since i remember. i have been treated for endo, however i still have servere pain in the opening of my vagina when having sex. it is a stining, burning pain and it is very uncomfortable having sex. i watched one of your programmes and a lady had the same problem but cannot find the name of the condition, said you can get creams to help, its were the opening of the vagina is very sensitve and inflammed. please can you help me? thanks.

    It sounds like you have vulvodynia. I suffer from this also and it is very hard to treat. It is hard enough in the first instance to get a diagnosis as unfortunately it isn’t a very well researched condition, but there are so many different causes, thus so many different treatments. It ends up being a case of trial and error and something that may work for one woman won't necessarily work for another. There is a book called the volvodynia survival guide which I would strongly recommend you buy if you think this is what you have, and there is also a society set up online which you should look at. Hope this helps a bit.

    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.

    Usually yellowish discharge is a sign/symptom of Vaginosis or.an STD. Foul smells?? Burning sensation during urination or sex??

    Get circumcised, it is the ONLY permanent fix. I had the same problem and after 26 years it was the best decision I ever made. Sex is great, women actually prefer it, and urination is actually easier now.
