Stomach and vaginal problems

Hi, I am in need of serious advice, for the past two years my girlfriend has suffered with constant stomach pains usually when/after eating but she has been tested for allergies i.e gluten intolerance and they have all came back ok, she also get constant ulcers and indigestion, another problem is her vagina often hurts usually after/during sex, she has been to the doctors, dentist and clinic over the past two years and they can not diagnose this properly and are showing lack of interest the more often she visits, if there is any advise you can give it would be greatly appreciated as we need to get to the bottom of this and are having no luck.
Many thanks,

I ended up having a colonoscopy & being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis - it's a colon disease that causes a lot of pain, bloody bowel movements if it's flared up, and can cause cancer if untreated.. I was 20 or 21. I'm 25 now & still have some bad days, but nothing like the hell I went through. they thought it was my appendix initially, until a CT scan showed my large intestine was inflamed. -- first things first, see if her primary physician will schedule a CT scan to see if a colonoscopy is necessary.. or it could be an upper GI problem, which may require a different procedure. good luck, I know it *****!! keep me updated.

oh, as far as her vagina.. it could be a cervix problem, or cysts.. she needs to have a pap smear and/or an ultrasound.. I've had 2 procedures done to my cervix also.. not damaging though. I'm currently 8 weeks pregnant and praying all goes well.
