Pain during intercourse is called dyspareunia. It is very common with 3 out of 4 women experiencing painful intercourse at some time during their lives. For some women, the pain is only a temporary problem; for others, it is a long-term problem. Painful intercourse has many possible causes. Successful treatment depends on finding the right cause and sometimes trying different treatment options.
To understand what causes painful sex, it first helps to know about female anatomy so that you can describe the exact location of the pain. You may feel pain in your vulva, in the area surrounding the opening of your vagina (called the vestibule), or within your vagina. The perineum is a common site of pain during sex. You also may feel pain in your lower back, pelvic region, uterus, or bladder.
Lack of desire, arousal, or both can lead to painful intercourse in women. Pain during sexual intercourse can be a warning sign of many gynecologic conditions. Some of these conditions can lead to other problems if not treated.
I suggest you make an appointment with your healthcare provider. Working together, you and your doctor can find the cause of your pain during intercourse.
Please keep us posted.
