Pain During Intercourse, What Causes It?

Have you and your partner ever felt something during intercourse? Pain during intercourse, such as something stuck, sore, uncomfortable, and so on. It will interfere with your and your partner’s sexual activity. But do you know what causes it and why it happens? Is pain during intercourse is something dangerous? Check out the explanation below!

Causes of Pain During Intercourse 

When having intercourse with your partner, the pain caused can be natural as long as the pain does not interfere with these activities. See a doctor immediately if it bothers you and feels something is up.

In general, there are several reasons why you feel pain during intercourse, like something is up. What’s that? Let’s identify the cause. Some of the causes below you may experience that cause pain, like something is stuck during intercourse. Here are some of them.

1. Vaginal Lubrication

The cause of pain during intercourse, as if there is a block first, is the lack of sufficient lubrication in the vagina. Your reproductive organs are poorly lubricated or dry. This situation could be due to a lack of perceived stimulation.

You usually feel pain during intercourse, as if something is stuck after giving birth.

In addition, feelings of nervousness and tension can be one of the causes of dry reproductive organs. It is because these feelings make penetration difficult.

2. Vaginismus

The next factor is vaginismus. What is vaginismus? It is a condition in which the muscles of your reproductive organs are closed during sexual intercourse. This condition makes it difficult for your partner’s penis to penetrate for intercourse.

3. First Sex

The next cause of pain during intercourse is your first sexual intercourse. Usually, the hymen will be difficult to stretch for those of you who are having sex for the first time so that Miss V will feel like something is up and pain during intercourse.

4. Psychological

This factor influences those of you who want to have sex. Conditions such as fatigue, stress, and being in poor taste can make your reproductive organs tense up. These conditions make your vagina dry and will make it difficult for the penetration process in sexual intercourse.

For this problem, relaxing and communicating can be a powerful weapon for you and your partner.

5. Having Polyps in the Uterus

Uterine polyps are a condition where tissue grows abnormally in the uterus lining (endometrium). This condition is initially benign and can become malignant or cancerous.

Therefore, it is highly recommended that you consult a trusted obstetrician immediately if you feel related pain factors, such as something that is blocking this.

Types of Pain During Relationships Women Feel

In addition, women suffer several other pains during intercourse, such as pain in the lower abdomen and during pregnancy. Let’s discuss them one by one.

1. Pain in The Stomach During Intercourse

Abdominal pain during intercourse is usually felt in the lower abdomen. What is the cause of this abdominal pain? Is it more dangerous? Here are some of the causes, including:

2. Endometriosis

The first factor is Endometriosis. It is a tissue similar to the lining of the uterus but grows out of place or outside the uterus. If this tissue grows excessively in the endometrium, you can be sure you will feel pain, like something is stuck, especially in the lower abdomen and pelvis when having intercourse.

3. Ovarian Cyst

Furthermore, the pain in the stomach that you feel could be a cyst growing in the ovary. Benign ovarian cysts are usually small. However, cysts are malignant and large and cause abdominal pain during intercourse.

4. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Infections of the female upper genital tract, including the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, are a hallmark of pelvic inflammatory disease. This condition is caused by a bacterial infection that spreads from the vagina or cervix to the higher reproductive organs. It causes pain in the lower abdomen during sex.

5. Uterine Fibroids

The uterus also does not escape the pain as if there is a block if there is a disturbance. These disorders are called fibroids, benign growths of abnormal cells inside or outside the uterus. Symptoms of fibroids experienced by women feel similar to PMS or premenstrual syndrome, such as pain during menstruation, lower abdominal pain and pain during sex.

6. Urinary tract infection (UTI)

Urinary tract infections are caused by bacterial infections affecting certain parts of the urinary tract. This infection can cause abdominal pain during intercourse.

7. Wrong position

The last factor is the wrong position. There are several sexual positions that will cause discomfort because the male reproductive organs will go deeper into the vagina.

Pain during intercourse is like something is up when pregnant

Have you ever felt like something was up when you were pregnant? Do you know what causes it? Let’s look at some of the causes, including:

  • Changes in body shape
  • Presence of infection
  • Worried
  • Growth in the uterus
  • Weak cervix

In pregnancy, you will feel a lot of changes in the uterus during intercourse. Your partner’s reproductive organs will penetrate the cervix to the maximum, causing something to block.

When Having Intercourse Feels Like Going to the Toilet

Don’t panic if this happens to you during intercourse, as this is common. Most women who experience this are newly married women who do not understand intimate relationships.

This is caused by the pressure the penis puts on a woman’s colon during sexual intercourse. This has to do with the close distance between the large intestine and the woman’s vagina.

This will decrease or disappear by itself if you and your partner communicate and understand more about the position and how to have sex. Those are some of the conditions and causes that you can feel, such as pain during intercourse such as something stuck in the stomach during pregnancy, and wanting to defecate during intercourse. Immediately consult a doctor if the pain you are suffering interferes with sexual relations and your daily life so that there are no problems that you and your partner do not want and for the health of your family.

Here to keep in touch and informed.
