Do you ever have painful intercourse? Do you know what it could be from? Well, it may be a sign of Endometriosis or another underlying health issue. Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of cells (endometrial cells) resemble the uterus lining but with Endometriosis they grow elsewhere in the body including your ovaries, fallopian tubes, or bowels. Sometimes, these growths can get in the way during sex… which is what causes that pain!

So, do you have Endomtriosis or something else causing painful intercourse? Let’s run over some of the details so you can see if this might be what has been bothering your body.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Most women with endometriosis have no symptoms. However, when women do experience Symptoms of endometriosis they normally include heavy menstrual bleeding, painful periods, and sometimes, pain during sex. Less commonly, you can also have pelvic pain, painful bowel movements or painful urination.

Best Suggestions to Aviod Painful Intercourse

Painful Intercourse

If you’re still having painful intercourse here are some suggestions to help (though of course scheduling an appointment with an ob-gyn or other health care professional is always important).

1- Take pain-relieving steps before sex

Empty your bladder, take a warm bath, or take an over-the-counter pain reliever before intercourse. 

2- Use a lubricant

Some are sticky and some get everywhere but it’s important, even if you feel wet to make sure you’re properly lubricated. Silicone-based lubricants last longer and tend to be more slippery than water-soluble lubricants. Do not use petroleum jelly, baby oil, or mineral oil with condoms. They can dissolve the latex and cause the condom to break.

3- Don’t rush

Set aside time so you’re not tired or anxious. These things can put you on edge and stress can effect how open you are.

4- Don’t hide your pain!

I can’t stress enough how important it is to let your partner know when you feel pain, as well as what activities you find pleasurable. I know it’s stressful to interrupt a great moment because you’re body is rebelling but it’s not worth it.

5- Try sexual activities

That do not cause pain. For example, if intercourse is painful, you and your partner may want to focus on oral sex or mutual masturbation.

6- Massage

It's nonsexual, but sensual, and it can bring you closer to your partner. To relieve burning after intercourse, apply ice or a frozen gel pack wrapped in a small towel to the vulva.
