Swelling, stinging and redness following intercourse

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 7 1/2 years and have had three failed ICSI cycles. In all cycles, there has been a good response but the embryos display slow development and fragmentation. My clinic have said that we have unexplained fertility and are not willing to look into the reasons why and have basically said, there is no point trying another cycle.

When we have intercourse, I become very swollen, red and painful down below following. However, when I have intercourse during ovulation, these symptoms are not present. Is anyone able to shed light on the reason for this?

During ovulation there is more lubricant mucous down there and less friction. You might have some vaginal dryness. I would go and talk to your gp.
