Sex does not always feel good

Burning, irritation or cuts, some parts of pleasure can quickly turn into a fiasco. How come those who are unfortunate, feel most of the time, painful sensations when having sex which can turn us off from sexual acts?

Dyspareunia, a frequent pathology

This unusual pain that you feel during penetration and which prevents you from continuing intercourse, is called dyspareunia. Rest assured, this pathology is very common and affects all age groups. Women are not the only ones to suffer with it: men too can be affected. Sometimes the feeling of discomfort only appears in certain positions and vanishes in others. It can also be felt before penetration, at the entrance of the vagina or the clitoris; In this case, it is called superficial dyspareunia.

The causes of dyspareunia are often psychological

These pains that throw you even if your libido is high can be extremely disabling in your daily sexual life, and become a real embarrassment for you, not to mention the frustration that this can cause for you and your partner. But dyspareunia is far from being a long term issue. For, as often happens, the cause of these sometimes painful pains is, first of all, psychological. Do not hesitate to talk to your gynecologist or even consult a sexologist. However, hormonal causes (problems of vaginal dryness), infections (fungal infections) or dermatological disorders should not be ruled out. Doing a smear is also a good way to know if physical causes can be ruled out. In any case, do not leave and live like this, you have at your disposal only solutions, go seek help!
