Does anyone else suffer from really bad pain during sex?

As though TTC with endo isn't hard enough I find it really hard to BD in the first place Sex has never been pleasurable for me, it's always been scary and painful, and I sometimes have to stop as soon as we've started because it's too much. It was easier after having my youngest daughter for a while, which I think might be because I had a VBAC and perhaps was 'wider' down there (sorry, TMI) but after my periods returned it's become more painful again.

I find it especially difficult to BD when I am Oing because I get bad O pain as well and the pressure can become unbearable.

How do you all cope with the painful side of TTC with endo?

I haven't had any pain since stopping BCP in November. I also hadn't had painful AF's either. Not until this last one. I have a feeling the BD pain will come soon though. At one time I found that BD'ing wasn't nearly as painful as orgasms. I would have to take a pain pill afterwards because I was crying it hurt so bad

about orgasms, although bizarrely sometimes an orgasm helps to relieve some AF pain ??? I have no idea how that works.

When you've had pain from BDing did you ever find it was easier at certain times of the day? I usually find it's easier first thing in the morning, I guess because my muscles have had time to relax and loosen overnight.

Morning is less painful. The pain hasn't fully set in yet then. At times by the end of the day I'm in pain just sitting around. The ovarian cysts don't help.

Pain is really most noticeable around ovulation for me, thankfully hasn't been intolerable, just uncomfortable. Right now were using IUI so avoiding any painful BDing near o.

there really isn't much I can do to keep it from hurting. There are alot of ways I cant do it lol. um. I just kinda deal with the pain because I know I have to do it or I wont get pg. Its not as bad as it was ..Although I had lap done in 07 three months later I got pg with my son. Immediately after I got the depo. Ive been off it since March I started Yaz for two months in May when I got my af I quit all bcp to get pg. Still no af..still no bfp

I didn't start having painful intercourse until about December 2008. I had been on BC since I was 16 to regulate my periods, so it kinda kept the endo pain at bay I'm guessing until after being on it 9 years. I had my lap in March and haven't had painful intercourse since. But from December to March we were seriously only having sex like once a month because it hurt so much (poor DH!) He was really supportive though.

That's the other part of it, of course, the guilt when you can't BD My DH couldn't be more understanding but I just feel horrible about it when it hurts too much. And then the pain can drag on for so long afterwards, too.

I used to have so much pain though my teens (17-20) it was so horrible and then I had my 3 lap and had my son 8 months ago and things seem to be better but now I have "messed up" glands because I ripped (6 O'clock tear) and it went through my glands or something like that...
