    any answers yet to question?

    Hey all, I have experienced the same thing as Karen 64. Definitely after orgasm I get pain or cramps in the vaginal area and rectum. It is distressing and lasts for about 20 minutes. So I was wondering if Karen 64 found an answer yet as this is worrisome.

    hey

    sounds fishy,i would get a second opinion.pain like that isnt normal.if your ob thinks it is..... does she? that would raise a red flag with me.i have cists and nothing like that has happened to me,though every womens body is different.it sounds like endometrious,but i am no docter.just remeber to take notes of when where and what you were doing when the pain comes even whre you are with you cycle.

    I do — but I'm so prone to UTIs (thanks, menopause!) that I'm afraid not to. I USED to skip underwear years ago, but it's been a LONG time.
