Pain During Intercourse Patient Testimonial Transcript

My name is Mike and I’m from Cliffside Park, New Jersey. In July of 2011, I was 24 years old and I was introduced to this woman through a mutual friend of mine and on our first date we had sex. I felt the worst pain of my entire life, like a snapping in my penis, and I instantly knew something was wrong.

A couple of days later, the pain had not subsided. I sought out a urologist. I was given all these courses of treatment that were horrible. I mean, I’ve been poked, I’ve been prodded. I was told I couldn’t have ketchup, I couldn’t eat pepper. I work in television and I was told that I couldn’t drink coffee. This wasn’t like an erectile dysfunction. This was literally a loss of sensation. I would have sex and literally not feel anything. I literally suffered with this for six years and I had countless girlfriends in between.

Now we’re in 2017. This problem started July of 2011 and I still don’t feel anything during sex. I made an appointment with Dr. Ahmed in January of 2018. I get an email with the name, Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine and it was like music to my ears. There was a doctor named Dr. Ahmed who actually dealt with this.

Dr. Ahmed put me on a treatment plan that actually helped and not for nothing, this is an emotional rollercoaster. Dr. Ahmed didn’t give up on me, even when I wanted to give up on myself. She started putting me on a plan that included seeing a sex therapist, going to physical therapy and seeing her, and she would call me and just be like, hey, how’s everything going? I have never had a provider do that for me.

I am so happy to say that I had sex recently and it felt awesome. I hope that somebody out there listening who is suffering will take a stand, will go to the doctor, will be seen, will come here to Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine. Please call Dr. Ahmed. If I help somebody out there, if I help just one person, then I know I’ve done the right thing.
