Physical causes of painful intercourse differ, depending on whether the pain occurs at entry or with deep thrusting. Emotional factors can be associated with many types of painful intercourse.
Pain during penetration may be associated with a range of factors, including:
Insufficient lubrication. This is often the result of not enough foreplay. Insufficient lubrication is also commonly caused by a drop in estrogen levels after menopause, after childbirth or during breast-feeding.
Certain medications are known to inhibit desire or arousal, which can decrease lubrication and make sex painful. These include antidepressants, high blood pressure medications, sedatives, antihistamines and certain birth control pills.
Injury, trauma or irritation. This includes injury or irritation from an accident, pelvic surgery, female circumcision or a cut made during childbirth to enlarge the birth canal (episiotomy).
Inflammation, infection or skin disorder. An infection in your genital area or urinary tract can cause painful intercourse. Eczema or other skin problems in your genital area also can be the problem.
Vaginismus. Involuntary spasms of the muscles of the vaginal wall (vaginismus) can make attempts at penetration very painful.
Congenital abnormality. A problem present at birth, such as the absence of a fully-formed vagina (vaginal agenesis) or development of a membrane that blocks the vaginal opening (imperforate hymen), could be the underlying cause of dyspareunia.
Deep pain usually occurs with deep penetration and may be more pronounced with certain positions. Causes include:
Certain illnesses and conditions. The list includes endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine prolapse, retroverted uterus, uterine fibroids, cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and ovarian cysts.
Surgeries or medical treatments. Scarring from pelvic surgery, including hysterectomy, can sometimes cause painful intercourse. Medical treatments for cancer, such as radiation and chemotherapy, can cause changes that make sex painful.
Emotions are deeply intertwined with sexual activity and may play a role in any type of sexual pain. Emotional factors include:
Psychological problems. Anxiety, depression, concerns about your physical appearance, fear of intimacy or relationship problems can contribute to a low level of arousal and a resulting discomfort or pain.
Stress. Your pelvic floor muscles tend to tighten in response to stress in your life. This can contribute to pain during intercourse.
History of sexual abuse. Most women with dyspareunia don't have a history of sexual abuse, but if you have been abused, it may play a role.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to tell whether psychological factors are associated with dyspareunia. Initial pain can lead to fear of recurring pain, making it difficult to relax, which can lead to more pain. As with any pain in your body, you might start avoiding the activities that you associate with the pain.
A woman is considered to have an infertility or sterility problem when she is unable to conceive a child after at least one year of unprotected, regular, well-timed intercourse.
Infertility also includes an inability to maintain a pregnancy or carry a child to live birth, as described by the World Health Organization.
Female infertility accounts for approximately one-third of all infertility cases, according to the American Pregnancy Association. In fact, it affects an estimated 48 million women worldwide.
In women, fertility can be affected by various health problems, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine fibroids, anemia, thyroid problems, blocked fallopian tubes, Candida and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Other factors, such as heavy drinking, smoking, age (older than 35), obesity, excessive stress, a history of irregular or painful periods, a poor diet and intense physical training, can also increase a woman’s risk of infertility.
Experiencing infertility is emotionally painful for any woman and can lead to anxiety, isolation, extended periods of depression, and an inability to concentrate on daily tasks.
With techniques such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or surrogacy, many women struggling with infertility are eventually able to have a child. However, these techniques are very expensive and some women simply cannot afford them.
There are natural and herbal treatments that also can help fight the root cause of infertility and increase your chances of getting pregnant. Lifestyle factors, such as regular exercise and following a healthy diet, can also help.
Your first time needs to be special. After a lot of soul-searching, you are finally prepared to take the plunge and make love to the man of your dreams. Be it your wedding night or not, the first time you have sex has to be an experience you cherish for the rest of your life. Worried that inexperience might be a killjoy? drop your worries outside the bedroom, as we tell you the best sex positions for a passion-filled first time.
Man on top: the very first time you have sex, it's always better to take it slow, and sensual. Spend time on foreplay and when you are finally ready, lie on your back and lift your legs. Let your man slide into you slowly and feel the passion rise. Move rhythmically while in the missionary position and you are sure to have one of the best nights of your life.
Ballerina: like the spooning position, this sex position is intimate and has your partner holding you throughout the act. Lie beside him and lift your top leg, holding it outstretched in the air. Let him put his leg between yours as he enters you from behind and start the slow move.
Fine dine 69: lubrication is the key to great first-time sex. The 69 position ensures that this happens. Stimulate each other long enough with oral sex, and then let your man change his angle and enter you as you lift your legs in the air. It will be a night to remember.
The soft rock: lie on your back and let your man lie on you facing you. Instead of him resting on his elbows, ask him to hold you and put all his weight on you. Make sure your feet are touching as he slowly enters you. Now both of you move rhythmically. As you rock him up and down, get ready to go to pleasure heaven. (warning: try this one only if you can take his weight.)
The dragon: lie on your stomach and spread your legs. Place a pillow under your tummy and let your man lie on you. Ask him to stretch his body as he lies on top of you. This position requires slow and rhythmic, circular motions rather than the usual faster movements. A steamy night guaranteed!
Magic mountain: arrange a big pile of pillows and rest the upper half of your body on them face first. Arch your back. Now let your man lie on you with his chest glued to your back. Use the soft pillows for support and kneel as your man enters you.
On the edge: sit on your man while he sits on the edge of the bed with his feet dangling. Put your hands on his shoulders and let him rest his back on a stack of pillows. Kneel over him and let him enter you slowly. Brace your hands on the pillows behind his head for support.
