Question: Extremly Painful Intercourse


 headcasecharli - Tue Jan 13, 2009 1:20 pm

Hello,

I have been married for almost 2 years and was a virgin when married. I have had extremly painful intercourse since day 1. We hardly ever perform intercourse, we mostly use outercourse because of the pain. I feel like it is not lubricated enough, eventhough it is. It feels like it is hitting a wall or some sort of barrier when inserted. I get extremly painful cramps durring periods also. I am planning on going to a doctor once I get insurance. Thank you for your help.

User avatar Hello,
I'm glad you are going to see a doctor when you are able. In the meantime you might even be able to locate a low cost clinic for women, perhaps through a community health center. There are treatable conditions that can cause this problem - vaginismus is one problem women experience. You can get more information on this disorder online at http://www.vaginismus-awareness-network.org/

People who struggle with this share what works for them. This might be a place to start while waiting for your care provider.

Good luck.
