Worse pain during intercourse because of BC pill

I'm 19 and have no stds or infections.  I just recently started having sex when I married my husband.  We used condoms until I got on birth control.  I noticed everytime we had sex I had a burning and stinging feeling in my vagina during and after sex but it was bearable.  I also felt some deep pain during sex my guess is in my uterus but I don't know new to this stuff.  I did get an exam by the gynecologist which caused the deep pain for the rest of the day.  I didn't say anything to the doctor because I figured it was suppose to hurt some.  Then I got my birth control I've been on it for two weeks and I've noticed I have no more orgasms and can't get aroused.  Somehow  I still produce plenty of lubrication its amazing.  The only good thing from the birth control is it has cleared up my awful acne.  Sex on birth control pills hurts way worse and is not bearable with same pain as before just intensified. Also, what is the point of being on birth control when you can't even get aroused and sex is too painful.  I don't like the idea of using birth control that requires me to have to stick something up inside me. I see me messing that up and getting pregnant.  Should I just quit the pills and hope I don't get pregnant. I'm so annoyed.

Hello, I doubt your increased pain is caused directly from the birth control. I have tried many different kinds of birth control, and I didn't start experiencing painful intercourse until I started having Ovarian cysts, each month a woman has normal functional cysts, and these can sometimes get larger due to different types of birth control, what kind are you on? You can try switching pills and seeing if the pain becomes less. I have experienced tons of pain over the years, I'm 28 now, and it can also depend on where you are in your cycle.

Hello, I'm taking Lutera right now and its suppose to be a low dose hormone pill. It's also my first time using birth control pills.  The worst pain during sex was the last time I had it which was in the middle of my cycle.  I'm thinking about switching to the non-hormonal IUD since there are no hormones. What do you think about IUD's?  How did you get over the pain?

Birth control pills in my opinion are horrible! I was on the iud for five years& never had any complications. I tried out two low dosed bc pills & I couldn't finish either any of the first month packs. Minestrin had me breaking out and made me bloated with some chest pain. Lo loestrin seemed like it was working, I felt nauseous but it was bearable, it cleared up my acne also. The only thing that made me stop taking it was that I was getting a leg pain on my calf I immediately discontinued it
