Pain During Sex

The good news is, some treatments for painful sex in gURLs do not require medical intervention. A lot of the time, gentleness, patience, and confidence are all it takes. You should seek a doctor’s care if you’re experiencing really bad pain, bleeding, genital lesions, irregular periods, or vaginal discharge following intercourse.

And know that you’re not alone! It can be embarrassing and humiliating to go through sexual pain, and even mess up your relationships. Don’t give up on yourself, because with the right treatment, things really can get better.

    The second time I ever had sex (with the man who is now my husband, but was my boyfriend at the time), he slipped out, but not all the way out. For a while afterwards, we couldn’t even have sex at all, as the pain of him even attempting to put his penis inside me was just too much. I found that putting a pillow under my lower back and butt and using some lube until my body was used to sex solved the problem. Occasionally I do still have some pain during sex, but that’s mostly from my lack of physical abilities.
