Why Do I Feel Pain During Sex

WHY DO I FEEL PAIN DURING SEX?

Something Common but not commonly discussed!

Pain during sex or dyspareunia is something that almost 75% of women go through at some point in their life. For many women, this pain is roughly once or twice in their lifetime, but for some time, it lasts more than just once and twice. Some of the women even report that it is so painful that they also stop being intimate with their partners. 

Widespread thinking that many of the women go through is taking the pain as a normal phenomenon or even thinking that it is untreatable, which is why many women leave it untreated and accept it to be as normal.

Every woman should be aware of the fact that chronic, intense pain during sex is something that is not normal, and a doctor should be consulted in order to identify the root cause so that the painful experience could be turned into a pleasurable one.

Why does it happen?

            Several clinical conditions are considered to be the possible cause of painful sex.

  1. DrynessWomen of menopausal or post-menopausal stage suffer dryness in their vaginal region, something that is also reported in women of a young age as well. Dryness makes the sex painful and puts off the balance of good and bad bacteria in the vagina. It leads to infections and may cause pain during sex.
  2. Vaginismus – Most common condition due to which the muscles of the vagina become highly contracted. It may be due to fear or anxiety.
  3. Infections – Infections caused by yeast or bacteria can irritate the vaginal lining which may cause pain during sex or even urination
  4. Uterus Issues – Infections of the uterus or fibroids in the uterus may cause pain during penetration.
  5. Vulvodynia – pain at the vaginal opening may cause pain, itching, irritation, and pain during sex.
  6. Endometriosis – Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissues which are the same as the lining of the uterus may grow outside the uterus.
  7. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease – An inflammatory infection in which the tissues of the pelvis become inflamed and result in a feeling of pressure during sexual intercourse, which eventually leads to pain.

Silence is not an option

If you are experiencing pain during sex and the pain is so severe that you are thinking of avoiding having sex altogether, then it is the time that you see a doctor or, more specifically, a gynecologist. Many women are hesitant to talk about these issues even with their family or friends or even with their partners and often end up bearing the pain or silence or avoiding the act altogether, it is, therefore, essential for you to know that you are not alone in this and the condition is actually treatable by the use of medications or remedies.
