Question Could PCOS be causing my girlfriends pain?

Apologies in advance, I see there is already a thread very similar to mine started here, but I feel obligated to post my girlfriends problem word for word as she described it. She is suspected to have PCOS, but she is VERY neglectful of going to her doctor when she has a problem.... Before she started with a contraceptive (desogen) her periods were usually constant, but she doesnt show any excess hair.They have been thinking she may have PCOS for a couple of years now, but she hasnt gone in for enough testing to be conclusive, but at this stage in our lives, fertility is not a paramount issue (I am 19, she is 20) However she experiences pain during sex. Moisture doesnt seem to be an issue at all... Her doctor has hinted that PCOS could be the cause, but after a lengthy web search, I can't find any medical site that even makes a passing mention that PCOS caused issues with intercourse. Her description is... "it hurts going in. it burns and feels scratchy during sex. Afterwards it burns and its only inside of me, i dont feel pain when u just rub me and play with me" She says it happens almost every time. Very rarely does sex go without it. The timeframe seems to go as such. She feels a burning when I enter, but then everything is alright for 5-10 minutes, then she starts to feel some pain, which is where we stop. Although on the few occasions where she... *smacks the back of her head* didnt tell me she was hurting, the pain got excruciating very shortly. When we stop at the start of pain she says the pain dies down in about an hour, and then it burns for about 30 minutes after. If we dont stop she says the pain hangs around about an hour and a half, and the burn about an hour and a half after. Sometimes she will be sore the next day too. We are both very sexually natured people, and this is a major relationship issue for us, so we could use any help we can get...

So, now that Im down from my soapbox, I hope my longwinded description is enough. We want to know if her pain is being caused by PCOS, or if her Dr. has us barking up the wrong tree... and maybe where we could find the right tree.....

Thanks for reading.
James & Becca

Re: Could PCOS be causing my girlfriends pain?

This is just my personal thoughts, I'm no doctor though. It sounds like she may have an internal yeast infection. They can be very nasty, painful, burning, and sex just about is the most excruciating thing, the positive side of it is that it can be cured very easily with a prescription which means going to the doctor. This happened to me once, went to my family doctor, he gave me a medication that I took for about a week and it was gone. No problems since. I know you said she hates the thought of going to the doctor but at least this isn't going to the specialist and there really shouldn't be any extensive testing to be done. I HIGHLY recommend that she sees a doctor. If this isn't treated right away it will only get worse. And you are right that there is no corrolation between this and PCOS as PCOS doesn't cause that kind of problems, however having PCOS does make it easier for her to catch the yeast infection, rather than a normally health person.

Re: Could PCOS be causing my girlfriends pain?

How long can a yeast infection go on? This has been pushing a year now, and I would think that it would cause her discomfort all the time.... But then again, I'm no girl, and I dont have a clue what goes on down there.

Re: Could PCOS be causing my girlfriends pain?

yeast infection is a living infection, so as long as there is "food" down there it will survive. As far as the pain down there being all the time, not true. It's kind of like a sore on your leg, it hurts when you first get it, but as long as you leave it alone, no pain. You pick at the scab or touch the open wound it's gonna hurt and it'll take a while for the pain to go away. As long as she has no inner disturbances it's not going to hurt. Now as I said I'm just taking a guess at this being the problem. It could actually be a number of things. Any kind of discomfort no matter what she is doing, is not a good thing. If not treated whatever the problem may be, it'll only keep getting worse. But I don't think it is from PCOS alone.

Talking Re: Could PCOS be causing my girlfriends pain?

There's no hug icon here, so you will have to deal with this cool, wavy grin.... I'll be certain to let her know post-haste. As a side, I've read in other places on HB that ovarian cysts can cause this sort of pain. Different sort of cyst, or just not likely?

Thanks ALOT Dolphin27!

Re: Could PCOS be causing my girlfriends pain?

cyst will definitely cause that kind of pain as well. It wouldn't be ovarian cyst though cause well you wouldn't be hitting them. I'm not real familiar with cyst in the uterus area, so not much I can tell you on that line. Definitely see the doc though. Best of luck to you both!
