Sex Is Incredibly Painful

but only after the first 3 or 4 minutes. I haven't been to the gyneacologist cos I'm too scared. Also never had a smear test.

theres nothing to be scared of. sounds like you really need to go...in your position I'd be more scared not to go. you really may want to get checked out just to make sure that there is nothing serious going on...they can help you. they can detect the source of the pain and give you a remedy.

It's time to go to the GYNO, kiddo! (hmmm... I'm a poet and didn't know it!) There are numerous reasons for this discomfort. Most outcomes can be possitive once the prob. is properly identified. If the person is newly active, or has a new, LARGE partner it may just be a case of the body adjusting. Also, if the body isn't properly lubricating driness during sex can occur, and the friction of the partner will compound the prob. Then of coarse, there is the threat of STD's. Also a yeast infection, or vaginitis can cause a prob. Most of these probs can be treated w/ creams, antibiotics,meds, or sometimes procedures of removal (such as a freezing treatment for the cervix for diseases such as some kinds of HPV). There also seems to be younger women developing endometriosis--this needs to be ruled out as quickly as possible-- esp. if you want kids in the future. Bottom line is... it's uncomfy, and even a bit embarrassing, but the alternative could be getting a hysterectomy, tumors removed, or worse in the future because the gal was simply affraid to take early action.
