Yes!!! i have been having the same issue and i do not have medical insurance. i go to the neighborhood health care but its not as helpful as a primary doctor. I have been sexually active for about 12 years now (in birth control the whole time) and never had any issues with pain during sex till recently. I was on lorstrin 24 for about the last 1 half to 2 years. I was dating my ex at the time and didnt have pain during sex but would have some light bleeding. well we broke up few months ago and now am dating someone new and not trying to be graphic but he is alot larger than my ex. the bleeding is not just light bleeding but heavy bleeding and pain. The pain is more so near the opening of my vagina, not pelvic pain. I feels like burning and cuts. I went to the neighborhood health care and she switched my birth control to low ogestrel bc she had said the loestrin wasn't enough hormones to hold my uterine lining intact therefore causing bleeding. Took the low ogestel for about a month and the bleeding and pain continued. i went back and She suspected I had a bacterial infection so prescribed me monistat. That didbt help either. I've been on low ogestrel for about 2 months and nothing has changed but told me the birth control takes about 3 months to get into my system. I am so worried though. I have never had this issues ever and I feel so helpless. I am a nurse and have been researching and cnt find anythjng else than. I hope near the 3 month mark of my birth control the problems will start to subsideView Thread
