First a quick hello and my sympathies for my fellow sufferers.
I'm currently 28, and origonally was diagnosed with warts at 22. Had LEEP, done to remove them and all was good untill this past september. I had been under the impression I wasn't going to get them back. That fact is neither here nor there right now. (I still think I did fight off that strain and was re-exposed to a new one. My first case was quite prominent and a rather simple external situation, and we'll get to my most recent one. just my feeling, though)
So at my regular 6 month check-up my GYN noticed some very tiny and diffiult to notice warts near my vaginal opening. (That was a little embarrassing in a way, cause how do I not notice something that was on ME). Then my PAP also came back abnormal, no internal warts just some mild displaisa caused by HPV. I don't know the strain or whatever. I was kinda frustrated about the entire thing and just did what had to be done.
My GYN, as he was going to LEEP the warts anyway, burned the offending layer of my cervix as well. Sounded reasonable.
Now the first time, I was seeing his patner whom I love and wish I could still see. (stupid insurance). That procedure, he had warned me would be painful and gave me pain meds and numbing cream, which I never needed, Its was very easy for my.
His partner, whom I see now, I don't love so much. Getting info out of him is like pulling teeth, and his bedside manner isn't aweful, just maybe cold or awkward, but it lacks the reporte thats kinda essential when someone is looking up you're vagina.
The LEEP procedure he preformed on me was so painful. My cervix was sooo sore for about a week, and i guess the location of the exterior warts made it like having the equivilient of an episiemioty (sp?). I had stitches. They hurt for about 2 weeks and I don't if it was because of the anesthesia that I missed this info about the stitches or if he forgot to mention it, but I think my lack of knowledge of their prescence and therefore caution of them made things more painful. I don't think that area ever healed well. It was bad. anyway I moved, whether to lay, sit , stand....hurt equally bad. He also wouldn't give me pain meds. I could really have used them, eben if they only helped a little.
So now you know the backround, leading to the real question. I am having very painful sex. My post op appointment was o.k. I waited the 6 weeks and more to have sex as I wasn't with anyone at the time. I plan to bring this issue up in a month for my 6 mo appointment. I just wanted some feedback.
My pain is like stabbing pain. There were always certain angles that hurt, maybe too deep I guess. I always though that was because I'm a very tiny girl. My current partner is not small either maybe about 8-9" which I don't think helps. The more sex I have in a smaller frame of time the worse it is. Just once is fine. More than that in 24 hours gets increasingly painful to the point were I cannot. It was never this way before the procedure. I have no other kind of pain at any other time.
I do bleed off and on. It's just a dab of bright red blood. I feel certin that that is from my vaginal opening retearing. I'm certain that that never healed properly.
Sorry for the long story, but anyone else experience this pain or know/have an opinion of what it is? Does anyone think I'm taking a long time to heal, or it's a complication of the surgery? Could it be somethng worse (if it was wouldn't I have had this same problem before the LEEP?)
