but when I had sex it would hurt really bad, I found that lutera can dry out your vangina is that true and its been atleast 2 weeks since it started hurting and it still does, but only during and a little after, but im not sure if the bleeding was from me starting my period or if it was because my vagina was dry and sex tore skin inside my vagina, but it still hurts during sex really bad at first and then it goes away alittle is there anything I can do at home or buy myself to help this or do I need to go see a doctor?
I recommend that you see your Dr. Sex shouldnt be that painful. You can certainly try lubricants in the meantime. Birth control pills can sometimes make some women more susceptible to "yeast" infections or you may have BV (bacterial vaginitis) and this can cause painful intercourse. Another one that causes a lot of pain during intercourse is trichimoniasis which is a sexually transmitted bacteria and this one can harbor a while before it shows symptoms. It needs to be treated because it can cause PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) which can scar and render you infertile.
