Pain During Sex

There are lots of reasons why it can hurt to have sex. When figuring out what’s making it painful for you, there are a few things to consider:
-Does it only hurt sometimes, and eventually go away? If so, the pain is most likely treatable without the help of a doctor.
-Does it hurt every time you have intercourse, and the pain lasts during? It might be a sign that something medically wrong is up.

Remember, nothing is wrong with you as a person if you experience pain during sex. A good partner will understand that and not blame you for what you’re going through.

Here’s why you may be hurting, and how to stop that pain.

    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.
