Pain in my...Vagina
Someone...Please help me!! Approximately 6 or 7 months ago, I started to experience this weird pain in my vagina. I guess the pain can be considered close to my cervix opening. Accompanied by the pain, was a weird dryness---no lubrication. What's so strange is that at first, immediately after my menstrual cycle, I would develop Bateria Vaginosis. I went to my GYN and was given medication. The next month, I got "BV" again, and once again, was given the medication. This happened for two consecutive months. I was using tampons at the time, but have since stopped the use of tampons b/c of this(I have been using tampons since I was 15). The third month, no tampons and no "BV" after my cycle, but then something weird started to happen. After my cycle, I would have pain in my vagina and I would be completely dry. Normally, after(and before) my cycle, I would be VERY lubricated. I told my GYN about this and he thought that it might me endometriosis, but since I don't have "unusual" or "extreme" pain when I am having my period, he ruled this out. I logged onto WEBMD and read that there could be little to no symptoms, or symptoms are not always pelvic pain, but also lower back pain. Since approx 2004, I have been experiencing an increase of lower back pain. I don't know if this is associated with endometriosis or not. I do not know what to do. Recently, I used a tampon just to see what would happen. What I noticed was that when I used the tampon, my period would just stop---no blood flow at all and the tampon would be completely dry. This on the second day of my cycle--one of the heaviest days. I do not know what to do. I want to talk to my GYN about giving me a D&C, but don't know if he would perform one. If anyone has ANY suggestions, please please help. I hope that this is not an unusual problem and someone out there can provide some insight. Please help me.
