The reason why some women feel intense pain during s*x has been explained.
Many women have been prevented from enjoying intimacy with their partners because of pain during intercourse. Here are some of the reasons for the pain.
For some women, pain during s*x is common and easily fixed by either changing positions or using lubrication during s*x. However, when it goes beyond that, something is really wrong.
If the pain continues or gets worse, it may be a sign that something is wrong internally. For instance, physicians say, deep pain during s*x can be a symptom of endometriosis, while a sudden, sharp pain during s*x could be a ruptured ovarian cyst.
Again, doctors say, fibroid or cervicitis — that is the inflammation of the cervix caused by sexually transmitted disease or other infection can also make s*x painful.
If the pain is more of a burning or stabbing around the opening of the v*gina, it could signal a condition called vulvodynia (a chronic pain syndrome that affects the vulva area and occurs without an identifiable cause.)
If you sense pain during the insertion of penis into the vagina — or if you can’t even tolerate the insertion of anything into the vagina, it may be due to a condition called vaginismus (a painful spasmodic contraction of the vagina in response to physical contact or pressure, especially during sexual intercourse).
Some people experience vaginal swelling, itching, and/or pain after sex, especially if they use condom. If the pain only lasts for about 36 hours, you might just be allergic to latex.
If you have a latex allergy, you can use the polyurethane condom as an alternative and avoid this allergic painful reaction.
If the symptoms last longer than a day or two, or don’t go away after switching condoms, seeing your doctor will help you figure out if an underlying problem, such as vaginal infection, is responsible.
