Reasons for Pain During Sex

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Reasons for Pain During Sex

There are a number of reasons that can cause pain during intercourse. Physical intimacy is one such thing that requires your physical and mental stimulation in order to create a satisfactory environment and peak appropriately.

From sexual interest to stimulation, excitement and even sexual peak - there are four distinct stages in the act of sex and sexual intercourse that inevitably follows, until orgasm. So, it is important to be in the right frame emotionally and physically in order for the four phases to progress properly towards sexual climax. Yet, there are a number of reasons that can cause a decline in sexual interest and drive, as well as a less than satisfactory sex life. One of the reasons includes pain that many people, especially women, experience during the act of sex. This is called Intercourse pain or even Dyspareunia. Following are the reasons behind this pain-

  1. Cervical Problems: Many times, problems with the cervix can lead to dryness which can cause pain during intercourse. This may occur due to infections and other such conditions which cause pain during deep penetration.
  2. Uterus Related Problems: There may be problems with the uterus including fibroids and other such growths in the lining which can lead to pain during intercourse. Also, the presence of Endometriosis can also cause pain during such activities. In this condition, the tissue lining usually ends up growing outside the uterus which can cause severe pain and other related symptoms.
  3. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: This condition is also known as PID. In such cases, the tissue within the pelvic region can get infected to a great extent which causes a variety of painful symptoms and growths including pain during intercourse.
  4. Ectopic Pregnancy: When the fertilised egg develops outside the uterus, it is known as an ectopic pregnancy. In such cases, there may be pain in the region during sexual stimulation and activity.
  5. Vaginal Infections: Pain during sexual intercourse may also be experienced due to vaginal infections and other yeast infections as well as a condition known as Vaginismus which can lead to involuntary twitches and spasms that can arise because of fear of getting hurt.
  6. Lack of Lubrication: Excessive dryness and lack of lubrication, especially during stimulation can lead to pain during intercourse as well, as the opening does not expand or accommodate the male member properly. In such cases, one can use a lubricant.
  7. Stress: Many times, a stressful situation can keep one from enjoying stimulation which creates dryness and pain during intercourse.

Ensure that you see a doctor in case your problem is more than mere occasional pain, as it could also be a side effect of a more serious ailment.

She can take milk. Now some backahe is common but excessive pain needs attention. Do not take drugs without consulting doctors. Maintain correct posture. For leg pain, movement of leg is needed. If severe, consult doctor immediately to make sure that it is not vein thrombosis.

Hi lybrate-user, your ovulation is ok. Your period is normal. But your chance of pregnancy is less due to dysmenorrhoea. That means cycle is not clear and ok. Congestive dysmenorrhoea occurs with brown color of blood. Try to correct your cycle by natural herbal drugs. Your endometrial bed will be ok and fit for implantation of fetus. Ovarian cycle may be normal but uterine cycle should be well.

Homeopathy for Osteoarthritis: Why is it a Good Option?

MD - Homeopathy, Masters Degree of Homoeopathy
Homeopath, Mumbai
Homeopathy for Osteoarthritis: Why is it a Good Option?

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease that affects the various bone and joints health, leading to painful movement and thereby limiting the patient's mobility.  Knees, hips, joints of hands and legs are affected.

Symptoms of OA

The symptoms revolve around the bones and joints including:

  1. Pain and stiffness of the joints
  2. Swelling of the joints
  3. Inability to form a clench
  4. Difficulty holding things 
  5. Stooped posture 
  6. Weakness of legs and hands
  7. Reduced height over time

Treatment options in allopathy are limited to nonsteroidal analgesics to control pain and in severe cases, surgical correction, in case of OA.  However, homeopathy takes into account the triggering symptoms, the associated symptoms, and the status of the immune system before deciding on a treatment regimen.

With this holistic approach, homeopathy achieve the following:

  1. Reduce the pain, swelling and stiffness
  2. Slows the pace of further degeneration
  3. Improves mobility of the affected joint(s)
  4. Improves the body's overall immune system, thereby allow the body to promote healing on its own
  5. Homeopathic intervention in the early phases is particularly helpful, as it will arrest disease progression
  6. It also enable better absorption of minerals and nutrients essential for bone health. This allows healing of existing bone fractures and avoids further bone damage by strengthening the bones
  7. Homeopathic treatment also enables the body's chemical state to withstand stress and illnesses better
  8. It vitalizes the body's natural healing and ability to repair itself, to create a better state of health and well-being

Some of the popular homeopathic medications based on areas and associated symptoms are listed below:

Knee joints:

  1. Bryonia Alba: Pain worsened with movement, relieved with rest; associated with swelling and stiffness of the joints; difficulty in climbing stairs.
  2. Calcarea Carbonica:  Swelling and pain that is worsened when getting up from a seated position. The joints feel cold and painful.
  3. Sulphur: Worse with climbing stairs, prolonged standing, feeling of warmth in the knees. 

Hip Joints:

  1. Colcynthis: Cramping pain improved by pressure.
  2. Rhus Toxicodendron: Pain when getting up from a seated position.
  3. Pulsatilla Nigricans: Associated with muscle stiffness and cramping.

Finger joints:

  1. Antimonium Crudum: The pain pain gets worse in cold weather, improved by applying something warm) 
  2. Benzoic Acid: There is an associated crackling sound when the fingers are moved or if there are nodes in the area of joints. . The urine is highly offensive in these people. 
  3. Calcara Fluorica:  There are stony hard nodes formed in the joint area, greatly reducing the mobility.

These medications are safe, completely natural, do not induce habit formation, and are approved by FDA.  They don't just treat the symptoms but help manage the patient as a whole.  This justifies why homeopathy is definitely a good option in treating osteoarthritis.

Yes, it is possible but success depends on tubal condition and Surgery. No one can say no risk as one surgery for reversal and one more Caesarean both have risks. Maximum you can reduce risk of reversal surgery by opting for IVF (test tube baby- Costly and and if does not succeed in first trial you pay again)

I dint get my periods since 20 days. My period date is 17th. N my stomach started bloating. I don't feel comfortable.
If you had intercourse during the above period and if there is a possibility of pregnancy, this is the right time for you, if your last period's last date was 17th May then you can get the pregnancy test done to know the result. If there was no intercourse and if your regular periods are irregular you need not worry. The bloating of the stomach could be due to acidity. So take plenty of water, take regular meals avoid spicy, outside food and junk food. Come back again for further guidance if required. Good luck.

Is it safe to have sex when wife is pregnant of 9 weeks. Also advise safe sex positions.

Yes "Missionary" position If you try missionary position after the first trimester, wedge a pillow under you so you're tilted, not flat on your back. And make sure your partner supports himself so his weight isn't on your belly. 3 / 9 You on top This position can work throughout your pregnancy. Straddle your partner as he lies on his back. That way, there'll be no weight on your abdomen and you can control the depth of penetration. 4 / 9 Side-by-side, from behind Lie with your partner facing your back and entering from behind. Keep some pillows handy for extra support as your pregnancy progresses. Penetration tends to be shallower in this position. That's a good thing, because deep thrusts can become uncomfortable in later months. 5 / 9 From behind, doggy style Support yourself on your knees and elbows as your partner kneels and enters from behind. A pillow can provide needed tummy support. Advertisement 6 / 9 Side-by-side, at an angle You each lie on your side, your bodies creating a V-shape. Wedge a pillow under your back for support as you face your partner, and rest both legs over his hip. This position allows him to keep most of his weight off your belly. 7 / 9 On a chair Straddle your partner as he sits on a sturdy chair. Position the chair near a wall or another piece of furniture to lean on when you're ready to get up from this position. 8 / 9 Edge of the bed Shift your bottom to the side or foot of the bed and lie back with your knees bent. (After the first trimester, wedge a pillow under one side so you're not completely flat on your back.) Depending on the height of the bed, your partner can kneel or stand. 9 / 9 When intercourse is out If sex with penetration is uncomfortable, you and your partner may want to find other ways to be intimate. Find out whether it's safe during pregnancy to use a lubricant, use a vibrator, receive oral sex, and more.

Music - an Antidote for Stress
Music for Stress Management

There are times when you are either too stressed or too pained to feel good about anything. Stress from hectic work schedule and daily life gets you and makes you prone to health issues or feeling depressed and lonely. The resultant extreme mood swings take over your life and you are no longer in control!

One very effective and interesting way to beat the stress is to switch on some Music!

Research has proven that soothing music such as classical instrumental pieces seem ‘melodious’ to us because of the calming wavelengths that they resonate at. These sound waves produce a sense of harmony and well-being in our minds. As we listen, these sound waves ease out our ‘stress’ and relax the nervous system. Stress is your worst enemy and the only way to live life is to enjoy every moment of it!
