Hi all-
This question is obviously for the ladies. 🚺 I've noticed in the past year or so that sex has become uncomfortable, and for a day or 2 after, my abdomen is achy and tender. Any ideas as to what the problem might be? My scans and scopes have been pretty uneventful in terms of active Crohn's, so I'm wondering if it could just be hormones or even scar tissue? It's really starting to become frustrating, so any help would be greatly appreciated! I have an appt coming up with my ob/gyn, and I'm certainly going to try and get some answers then as well. Thank you in advance! 💜

Crohn's for 24 years- currently on Entyvio, amitriptyline, bupropion, vitamin D, vitamin B12, fentanyl patch, probiotics, d-mannose, and prn immodium & Phenergan. First resection- ileocecotomy in 2007, no longer have my appendix or gallbladder (a result of Crohn's). I'm in clinical Crohn's remission but am really struggling with other autoimmune issues/symptoms. Keeping the faith!! ?

You could have some scar tissue and adhesions going on. So if he is deeper and your uterus gets jostled a bit, it could be slightly attached to something and things are pulling. How long does it last?

Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities; I take pleasure in infirmities, reproaches, necessities, persecutions, distresses, for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Cor

It typically lasts throughout, and then I'm pretty sore the day after. 😩

Yeah, I think it sounds like adhesions, but I'm not 100% certain on that. Do you get cramping on period? Does it feel the same as this?

Yes, it's definitely similar to the cramping I get on my period.

Then it could also be PCOS or something.

I didn’t have pain during sex, but I always felt like something was pulling on my lower right side of my abdomen. It was annoying. Then I had to have an emergency resection and the surgeon said that my intestines were so inflamed that they were stuck to my right ovary. That’s why I was feeling the pulling. He cleaned it up, and I hadn’t felt that pulling sensation since then.
