Customer: replied 13 days ago.
i have been physically examined , they said everything looks normal, its just the pain more than anything,I've got no abnormal discharge its just very painful and red, almost like a raw and throbbing sensation. I'd been having non painful sex and no problems untuil about a year and a half ago
