  • Thank you for doing a video on this, I have really severe endometriosis and for years I was told it was normal when I was in unbearable pain every day. I’m on the pill now and it’s helped a lot. It’s good to see awareness and information about this. I really want to get a laporascopy but I was told I shouldn’t get one unless I really have to

  • I’ve been to the ER 4 times in the last month from pelvic pain during intercourse and this last visit they did an ultrasound and found that everything looked normal. My primary doctor is only doing video chat calls and I can’t see a OBGYN because of COVID and don’t know what I should do. This pain began 3 months ago and was very sudden. From one day to the next the pain started during intercourse and has been intense pain. Should I get a second opinion? A vaginal ultrasound? Can this pain effect me negatively in the long run? I need help and no one will!:(

  • hello, My question is having sex with your partner and there is some pain during that moment not in stomach but in your vagina. what is it caused by?

  • its disturbing when people interrupt eachother, but its even more disturbing when its men interrupting a woman that is explaining something that they obviously dont know yet, thats just painful to watch

  • I got menarchy during the time of my 7 nth stndrd.After 4 mnths I have pain in every month, the first 4 hours I can’t tolerate my pain and cannot do anything even cannot stand frm my bed.But the pain lasts for only 4 hrs in the frst day only. I getting my prds in correct cycle.During the frst day I can’t go in school now Iam 23 and even I can’t do my daily routine.I consulted so many doctrs and scanned.But there is no prblm in the scannings.I tried allopathy,homepathy,ayurveda etc but no result ☹

  • Less pressure against the vaginal wall, increase rubbing type motion. Though too frequently desensitization, increased pressure to achieve expected stimuli, and back to problem one… Some people focus on cervical stimulation which is somewhat pointless without relocation of nerve endings and hyper concentration of the nerves in a specific region.

  • I really wanted her to speak more. Very dissapointing to see Dr. With such rude manners when they should know better. Could at least have respect and let her finish

  • As a woman I can relate. What she said makes sense. I personally feel like it is important to stop your partner and expel the air. Otherwise it’s uncomfortable and you can spend the whole time waiting for the activity to end….:-(

  • The only time I’ve ever had air escape (which let me know air had snuck up there in the first place) was with an ex of mine and he was…smaller than my previous but it still wasn’t bad but I think he wanted to do. dare I say, alot of big dick positions…and yeah, I try to forget that one night we were in the middle of it and ALL OF A SUDDEN I heard the loudest longest queef of my LIFE and if I was dying on the inside, soon as I saw his face I could just tell his ass was embarrassed. Now it was never painful during intercourse so that woman may need an ultrasound to figure out what’s wrong with HER but I definitely know that yes, this female Dr is spot on how air can travel up during intercourse and it was really pissing me off that how they not only kept interrupting her but also undermining her every time she spoke. But yeah, needless to say, ol dude felt kinda ashamed about his package deal lol

  • I think the lady had gas in her stomach before sex….not from sex, a man’s penis isn’t a air pump…maybe the meal she eat before sex…lol

  • Am so happy watching dis video, cos am facing de same problem i cnt enjoy myself having sex at all. i feel so much pain. can Doctor please tell me Wht to do?

  • In conclusion: No matter how old or educated a male is, the one thing he can’t shake off is the immaturity & fascination with the VAGINA. Sing it a thousand times a day guys! You will not feel the pain of hearing “it” anymore. )I( Eventually.

  • why do they keep interrupting her? she’s say really interesting stuff and they’re just raising their eyebrows at her and butting in.

  • I get exactly what she is talking about. Just bend over and spread em, suck in your lower stomach and push that air out. ������girl struggles.
