I know this is going to sound really strange. I 've been with my partner for over 3 years and recently everytime after sex i feel really ill and sometimes even physically sick. :(

As you can imagine this is worrying both me and my partner, i've been to the doctors and so has he and we're both healthy in all parts of the body. But i cant help but feel absolutely terrible after sex, its really getting me down and i feel as though he might end up getting really annoyed with me and go off with someone else.

Please has anyone ever experienced this? :cry: Or can anyone offer me any advice?

I'm not sure about this at all but if your doctor says you're both fine physically maybe it has a psychological effect.
I wouldn't worry about your partner going off with someone else, if he's been to the doctors he's taking this seriously, if he didn't care i'm sure he'd have just refused and put the problem all down to being your fault, he'll just be worried about you.
Maybe you could go back to your doctor and ask if they could refer you to a sex therapist or something because this will need to be sorted for the sake of both yourself and your boyfriend.
I'm sure you're not alone in this.
Good luck x

I've had this. It could be that you're hyperventilating.
Sometimes during sex you can 'forget' to breathe, or breathe so rapidly (panting) that you hyperventilate. Try to remember to breathe deeply and more slowly and see if that helps at all.
It could also be due to the positions you're in, have you tried varying them so you're more comfortable?
Well done for going straight to the doctor, it's amazing how many people would rather worry about it than see a doctor and have their fears put to rest!

Hiya, :P . I can clearly understand that this is worrying to both you and your partener are sick with worry or maybe you are feeling stressed be for sex that your stomach muscles tighten up or maybe you are hyperventilating??

I really am not sure but if your doctor says you are healthy then I would be happier. Keep trying, the pain might go away!!!??? *rolleyesheart*
