Pain during sex is a common problem for women.
As many as 75% of women will experience pain during sex at some point, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. For many women, the pain is rare or happens only once, but for others it’s persistent.
“Some women will stop dating or stop being intimate with their partners because it hurts too much”. “It’s important to talk to your doctor and get that pain diagnosed, because it is treatable.”
Here’s what Dr. Anger wants women to know about painful sex:
Just because painful sex 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.
Sex should be a pleasurable experience, and if it’s not, speak up to your partner and your doctor.
Dryness is common in menopausal and post-menopausal women, though younger women can experience it as well. Dryness can not only make sex painful, it throws off the vagina’s balance of good bacteria, which can result in infections that contribute to painful sex.
‘Try using a lubricant if dryness is causing you pain during sex.
Many conditions may cause pain during sex. Dryness is the most frequent reason, but there are many other reasons sex might become painful. Some conditions that can be at the root of the problem:
- Pelvic floor dysfunction: The pelvic floor muscles—the ones you tighten when you want to stop passing urine quickly—can become painfully tight. It can cause an achy pelvis and pain with any kind of insertion.
- Vaginismus: The muscles at the opening of the vagina become tightly contracted, causing pain during sex.
- Vulvodynia: Chronic pain at the opening of the vagina, including burning, stinging, soreness, itching, rawness, and pain during sex.
- Infections: Bacterial, yeast, or sexually transmitted infections can cause pain during sex and usually have other symptoms, like discharge.
- Ovarian cysts: These fluid-filled sacs on the ovaries often have no symptoms. When they rupture, they can cause pain and bleeding.
- Fibroids: These non-cancerous growths on the uterus can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure, pain, and painful intercourse.
