For people bleeding for weeks at a time, make sure to check that your birth control is strong enough. A few years ago, I was changing birth control pills and apparently was put on a higher pill. I ended up having a regular period for almost 2 months straight. I went to the doctor to have this checked and turns out the doctor messed up and put me from a higher dosage to a lower dosage which messed up my cycle completely. I stopped taking the pills completely and my period worked itself back out and I haven't had that issue since.
I have abnormal cells(HPV) for the past few years now which can cause multiple symptoms but have been treated by my gyno for a few years now. I had noticed with my boyfriend of 3 years pain after sex and sometimes bleeding. First of all, I too let the pain go and tried to deal with it myself but it felt like I was giving birth. I had a pushing sensation on my back and cramps within my pelvic area that were almost unbearable as well as the dizziness feeling. Sometimes these pains lasted up to an hour and some went away after rubbing my stomach and staying in one position.
I just went to my gyno yesterday and asked her why this would be happening and what was wrong with me as it happened once in a while within minutes of having intercourse, sometimes even during. The doctor advised me that it actually is normal, she told me that some women's orgasms result in pain.. she said some have the feeling of pleasure where others result in this sharp pain and had advised me to take Tylenol/Advil prior to having intercourse to relieve the pain. Weirdest thing I have heard, but I am glad that its not something more serious. I saw your comments on here and wanted to assure you that I have been told it is normal for some and not to think the worst as I did by searching the symptoms online.
Hello ladies, my name is nataly and I've been suffering from this for quite a while. The only thing that I feel that helps me is, as many of yall mentioned, we feel it coming, so I relax and take a deep breath and let it out slowly, if I hold it in it seems to hurts to most.View Thread

I went to the doctor about a week ago and she prescribed me amoxicillin. I told her my family history but she gave it to me anyway, I've been taking these pills for about a week now and I have vaginal discharge, swelling and itching sensation (I was freaking out when I seen it because I've never had these problems before but then I read the side effects and no longer had a reason to go off on my partner lol slow moment.) Anyway I have maybe a week worth of pills left and I'm contemplating on if I should call my doctor before I go crazy or if I should stick it out and just get the situation handled at my follow-up appointment.View Thread
