I have had a pain in my left side of my vagina for about four years give or take. The pain is very rare but it does happen. Well the pain has become more frequent the past couple of months and Around one to two months ago I had my period. Well I took the plan b pill and a week after my first period ended I had another one and I haven't had one since. My gynecologist has also switched my birth control twice since that last period. I have taken multiple pregnancy tests and they all come back negative. Could the pain and the period be related? What's going on with my body?
If you're feeling a burning sensation, and it's localized to one area... the same area... each time, it makes me wonder if you're having some kind of muscular contracture or seizing. There are conditions, vaginismus being an example, where a woman will experience uncontrollable and painful contracture of the muscles. In the case of vaginismus, the contracture keeps a woman from being able to receive penetration, even from a tampon, or a Pap test. Just a shot in the dark at some things you can look up on the internet until you can speak with your doctor. I recommend you try doing some pelvic floor exercises (kegels) and see if that brings it back. At the very least, kegels will give you awesome muscle control in the sack. ;-)
