It can cause problems in your sexual relationship and even have negative effects on your psyche and emotions: pain during intercourse. It can be caused by many things.


Here’s a possible list of causes of painful sex:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal infection
  • Menopause
  • A result of operations in the genital area
  • Spasms of the pelvic muscles
  • Cystitis
  • Birth injuries
  • Endometriosis
  • Problems with the uterus


Doing some research

There are lots of causes for painful intercourse. However, vaginal dryness and vaginal infections are the most common causes. Both could be accompanied by redness, irritation, itching and pain inside and/or outside the vagina. These symptoms could get worse when you have sex. Many women are uninformed or not enough informed about pain – including vaginal diseases to recognize them or treat them. So if you want to know how to tackle painful sex, try to determine the causes. Do some research or go see your doctor for help.

Treating painful sex

How you treat painful intercourse depends on the cause. In cases in which there is vaginal dryness, a gel that conditions the vaginal tissue and instantly relieves vaginal dryness like Multi-Gyn LiquiGel can be very helpful. When sex is painful after childbirth, waiting a few weeks before having intercourse could help. In some cases, when there is an underlying medical cause, a doctor could prescribe medication. If here are emotional causes, sexual therapy might work. And last, talk to your partner about it! You might find other options to be more comfortable during sex. Just talk about what feels good or not.
