(18+)11 reasons why sex is painful for some women

Sex is not meant to be painful.
However, sex is very painful for some women, for a number of reasons including size of the penis/vagina, health challenges and mental readiness.
Pain during or after sex, medically termed dyspareunia, can happen during or after sex and could be felt in the vagina or the inner pelvic region.
However, all women should know that experiencing pain during or after sex
could be the body trying to say something is wrong.
The best reaction once you notice it is to see a qualified doctor.
Here are the reasons for dyspareunia:
  1. First time sex – it is normal and common for a woman having sex for the first time to feel pain because the hymen is stretched abnormally. It can be very painful too.  
  2. Dryness, no lubrication – when the woman in dry in the vagina, penetration is more than likely to bring sharp pain and even tears. Using a lubricant will help.
  3. Mental block – sex could be painful when the woman is not 100% ready for it. She needs to be emotionally and physically involved for it to feel good.
  4. Infections – some sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like chlamydia, gonorrhoea and genital herpes can cause sex to be painful
  5. Menopause – when a woman reaches the menopausal age, her changing hormone levels can make her vagina dry (atrophic vaginitis), leading to painful sex. Lubricants will come in handy
  6. Vaginismus – this is a condition where muscles in or around the vagina shut tightly and make penetration very painful or even totally impossible
  7. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) – this condition is an infection of the female upper genital tract, including the womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries. It makes sex painful
  8. Endometriosis – this is a common condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb (the endometrium) is found outside the womb. It leads to painful/heavy menstrual periods, lower abdomen, pelvis and lower back pain, and painful sex
  9. Fibroids –  non-cancerous growths that develop in or around the womb (uterus), near the vagina or cervix can also cause painful sex
  10. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – this common, long-term condition of the digestive system can cause painful sexy, stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and/or constipation.
  11. Constipation – this common condition that affects people of all ages causes stools to be hard and lumpy, as well as unusually large or small. It also causes painful sex
Unless it’s first time sex, don’t ignore pain during sex because it may lead to even bigger health challenges in the future.
The bottom line is that painful sex is not normal and can be treated once you reach the health experts and explain.
You doctor is your best friend
