I am a 18 year old female. I have not gone for my first pap yet but I have a appointment set. I do know from previous ultra sounds that I have ovarian cyst and my uterus has shifted to the left. So that being said is it normal that sometimes after sex or during sex my lower abdomen in the uterus area has pain? Usually it goes away quickly but this time it seems to be lingering. Should I be worried and consult with a doctor or should I be ok until my appointment with the obg/yn on the 7th. Please answer if you can help. I'm a little worried. My mom thinks it's normal and I should not worry but I am worried.
Pain in lower abdomen after sex. Should I be concerned?

I don't know if this is true but I was told woman who have been raped could experience this due to the trauma they experienced I was raped when I was 15 years old could this be related?
I had hemhorragic ovarian cysts before my hysterectomy. I can tell you that they can be quite painful with and after sex. The fact that you were raped and that your uterus is shifted would only compound the problem. If the pain becomes unbearable or if you experience a heavy blood flow when you know it is not time for your menses, contact your gynecologist right away. You should be OK until your appointment. I think your Mom is probably right for you not to worry. She certainly knows you better than any of us on this site. Feel better soon.
