    georgiagail responded:
    Wouldn't it be a good idea to get a Pap smear or perhaps some STD testing (especially if your sexual intercourse has been unprotected) to rule out problems associated with these problems?

    What is the period disorder? I assume your gyno has checked the anatomy of your uterus and ovaries to make sure there is nothing wrong there--such as a twisted follopian tube or ovary.

    Endometriosis can cause pain and cramping during intercourse. I think due to your age and sexual activity--regardless of symptoms an annual gyno exam is in order. you can request a complete std work-up at that time as well. When you call, I would express urgency in getting in to see someone.
