Hi cactuslover – I’m so sorry to hear that you’re still having issues! it definitely sounds like the hormones are having some kind of negative effect, so looking into an IUD sounds like a good idea. I’m 30 years old and I’ve also had to contend with the fact that there are ways my body has changed in the past couple of years that just seem to be a part of aging, so it’s common for something that’s never been a problem to suddenly not work for our bodies anymore, which is VERY frustrating. I hope you’ll keep looking into answers and treatments, because you don’t deserve to be in as much discomfort as you’re experiencing! There can be lots of causes of vaginal pain, from skin irritation to nerve issues to vaginismus to still more conditions, so just because one doctor doesn’t have the answers doesn’t mean none of them do!
