Sex should not hurt. If you experience pain during sexual intercourse, it is a sign something is amiss that may require medical treatment. Contact your OB-GYN provider at Ladies First Obstetrics & Gynecology to get evaluated right away.
Painful intercourse – also called dyspareunia – may be experienced in a variety of ways, such as a burning sensation, dull ache, or sharp pain. It may be similar to menstrual cramps. It could occur on the outside of your vagina or feel as if it is occurring deep inside your abdomen or pelvic area. If you repeatedly experience pain before, during, or after intercourse, you are experiencing dyspareunia and should contact your doctor.
