Ladies! Here Are 5 Reasons Why You Feel Pain During S*x


April. 20, 2020

S*xual intimacy is meant to be an enjoyable experience that draws you and your partner closer together. Pain during s*x is a common problem for women. As many as 75% of women will experience pain during s*x at some point. Some women will stop dating or stop being intimate with their partners because it hurts too much. S*x should be a pleasurable experience, and if it’s not, speak up to your partner and your doctor.
Dryness is the most common cause
Dryness is common in menopausal and post-menopausal women, though younger women can experience it as well. Dryness can not only make s*x painful, but it also throws off the vagina’s balance of good bacteria, which can result in infections that contribute to painful s*x.
Tightness in the vagina entrance
In some situations, size matters—if, for example, a male partner has a large penis and your vagina is small, you could experience pain. Keep in mind, though, that a woman’s body size is not related to the size of her vagina.
Bacterial, yeast, or s*xually transmitted infections can cause pain during s*x and usually have other symptoms, like discharge. S*xually transmitted diseases may include genital warts, herpes sores, or other stds.
The muscles at the opening of the vagina become tightly contracted, causing pain during s*x.
Chronic pain at the opening of the vagina, including burning, stinging, soreness, itching, rawness, and pain during s*x.
Just because painful s*x is very common, that doesn’t mean you should accept it as "normal." The occasional minor soreness may be nothing to worry about, but you shouldn’t be dealing with intense chronic pain. S*x should be a pleasurable experience, and if it’s not, do well to speak to your doctor.
