Painful Intercourse (***) in Women: Causes & Symptoms

Painful intercourse, also known as Dyspareunia, is a problem more common in women. Having pain during *** might sound normal but it isn’t. Little pain occurring a few times may not be something to be worried about. But, pain that arises often (recurrent) and is severe may lead you to avoid having ***. If that’s your case, you must have a discussion with your doctor.

Causes of Pain During ***

Most times, women have painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness or insufficient lubrication. You may be able to solve this problem by extending the foreplay period or using some lubricant like oil or gel. Other causes of pain during *** are as follows:

●     Infection: Infections caused by bacteria usually affect the reproductive and urinary systems.

●     Genital injury: Injuries can happen in any part of your body. Cuts or bruises on or near your vagina can have an influence on your *** life. Plus, internal injuries also hamper intercourse in females.

●     Vaginismus: It is a condition in which your vagina goes through involuntary tensing. When you have Vaginismus, you may feel intense pain during tampon or ***** insertion.

●     Inflammation: People often relate pain with inflammation. Your painful intercourse might have a connection with swelling in the nearby organs of the vagina.

●     Birth abnormalities: Certain birth abnormalities like the absence of a fully-formed vagina in some individuals lead to Dyspareunia. Another reason could be the formation of an extra membrane that blocks the opening of the vagina.

●     Skin disorder: When the skin of your vagina is infected/injured or you have an underlying skin disorder, you may experience pain during ***** insertion. It may last for a few minutes or less.

●     IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome): IBS is a chronic large intestine disorder. Pain or cramping is the very first sign of this disease. Most women face pain during intercourse when initiated after a meal.

●     Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID): It is an infection that impacts the reproductive organs of females. The pelvic inflammatory disease may give rise to several kinds of discomfort including ***-related pain.

●     Endometriosis: If you have endometriosis in the lower uterus, *** may be the most painful activity for you. Other symptoms that denote this condition are irregular menstrual cycle and cramping.

●     Fibroids: Uterine fibroids cause muscle cramping and vaginal bleeding (spotting) in some women. Such signs may have an impact on your *** life.

●     Uterine prolapse: In this disease, your pelvic floor muscles become unable to provide support to the uterus. Uterine prolapse patients often report symptoms like pain in the pelvis and vagina.

●     Interstitial cystitis: It is a chronic condition that causes bladder and pelvic pressure. The pain may range from mild to severe. In some women, it may last for a while after intercourse.

●     Vulvodynia: Any persistent pain in your vulva (opening of the vagina) is vulvodynia. Mostly, this condition is unexplained with no particular cause. Vulval pain may elevate with the use of tampons.

●     Sexually transmitted diseases: Conditions like genital herpes, gonorrhea, and syphilis may be the reason for your pain. Eventually, sexually transmitted infections may get worse and cause deep aches in the pelvis and vagina.

●     Menopause: Decreasing estrogen during menopause arises a number of problems. This is why most women report ***-related concerns in their 40s and 50s.

●     Ectopic pregnancy: It’s a condition that occurs when a fertilized egg grows outside the uterus. Ectopic pregnancy may lead to throbbing pain during ***. In fact, it is one of the symptoms of fatal pregnancy.

●     Chemotherapy: ***** you administer during cancer therapy can have an impact on your body’s functioning. Those medicines also show side effects including painful urination and intercourse.

●     Tumor: Cancer of the uterus, vagina, cervix, fallopian tube, or ovary may cause deep pain during ***. It’s most relevant when you have a vaginal tumor. Though cancer pain may last longer than usual and worsen during/after ***.

●     Anxiety: It’s not always about an underlying disease. Relationship issues, stress, discomfort with the partner, or fear of intimacy might be the reason for having painful intercourse.

●     Surgeries: An invasive surgery concerning the vagina or a related organ may lead to trauma. This gives way to uncomfortable intercourse, itching, or pains.

●     Abuse: There are multiple long-term effects of sexual abuse. Serious pain during *** is one of them. Rape or physical abuse survivors may go through mental and physical trauma, resulting in such effects.

Symptoms of Painful Intercourse

A variety of symptoms increase your chance of getting diagnosed with Dyspareunia. Here is a list of pains you may experience:

●     Painful insertion during intercourse

●     Pain while inserting a tampon

●     Severe pain during thrusting

●     Burning sensation after intercourse

●     Pain only during penetration (entry)

●     Mild pain after intercourse

●     Ripping pain in the pelvis lasting for a few hours after intercourse

Your sexual well-being is worth prioritizing. Discuss your issues with a doctor and ask what leads to such painful experiences.
