I feel like this question has been asked before but I wasn't able to find any entries about it. Sorry if this is repetitious.
I get a very sharp, burning pain with arousal. It used to be rather light and only linger for a few minutes tops, and it wouldn't happen all the time. Just once every couple of months. I curiously asked a doctor what the hell was going on and I received a partial answer and no recommendations to make it stop. And since it didn't happen too much I didn't worry about it.
It's gotten a lot worse in the last few months, to the point where I don't want to get turned on because it hurts too much. It will now linger for a good 15-20 minutes and it will hurt so bad that I want to cry. I will actually talk myself out of getting turned on or doing anything sexual because I don't want to be in pain.
I don't know specifically why it's worse. In the last year I've run the gamut from chemical menopause to three different types of combined HBC and now I have a Mirena. I know it's likely due to the endometriosis (which is what that one doctor said) and something in the hormonal crap I've gone through has set something off.
I just want it stop. Has anyone else gone through this? Did they find anything that made it go away or at least lessen the pain? This is really starting to get to me.
Thank you for your help.
