Hi Bees! I apologize in advance for the length, but y’all should know I’m a rambler by now.
So a few months ago, my SO and I were having sex, and all of a sudden it became very, VERY painful and we had to stop. I literally curled up in a ball in bed and started crying… I’ve always considered myself to have a fairly high pain tolerance, so it was a very disorienting experience. As I was laying there I felt very nauseous and couldn’t really move without hurting more.
Of course, my SO’s immediate reaction was thinking he hurt me, and (while crying my eyes out!) assured him he hadn’t hurt me. He asked if I wanted to go to the ER, and I told him we should wait a couple of minutes to figure out what was going on.
I used my two most valuable tools: Google and my mother (she’s a nurse, so I figured “what the heck.”)
One of the things it sounded like was that we may have ruptured an ovarian cyst. And honestly, the way it was described online really made me think that that’s what happened. My mother was leaning towards us just being too rough (which is where I realized maybe I shouldn’t have called my mother right away about something sex-related. Haha). I wasn’t bleeding, so I decided we could wait to go to the doctor.
I scheduled an appointment with a gyno for the following week and my boyfriend tagged along (is that weird? I didn’t think so, but I just realized that might’ve looked strange from the outside…).
I explained that I thought I had ruptured a cyst to the doctor. She examined me pretty much like they do for a PAP, and then just kind of felt around inside of me before telling me there was nothing wrong, and if something was wrong it’s gone now.
I’ve had a couple of incidents since that felt like possible mini-bursts, and just kind of shrugged them off since they were nowhere near as bad as the first one.
I guess what I’m wondering is: Should I be worried? Google and my doctor weren’t really super clear, not to mention my doctor didn’t really seem to care all that much for my questions. I know that she went to school for this, and I didn’t question her judgement at the time, but now I’m just worried that maybe it is something to worry about in the future.
I’m 19, I don’t know if that changed things at all (:
