Pain During Sex

Vaginismus. More serious than just nervousness, this condition is the painful spasms of muscles at the opening of the vagina. These spasms may be due to several factors, including painful insertion, previous painful experiences, previous abuse, or an unresolved conflict regarding sexuality. For gURLs with vaginismus, a doctor may recommend behavior therapy, including vaginal relaxation exercises.

    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.
