Pain during intimate relations

Pain during intercourse can be debilitating. Not only does it affect sexual relations but may also create psychological distress and loss of confidence, whose impact may go well beyond the bedroom. Fortunately, in most cases, the pain can be easily remedied. The help required depends on the cause of the pain.
Vaginal Pain: Dealing with vaginal pain will depend on its cause. If the pain is due to vaginal dryness, some doctors may suggest hormone replacement medications. However, because of the side-effects and documented risks to general health, many women prefer to use vaginal moisturisers and lubricants which are widely available from high street chemists.

For women whose pain is due to vaginismus caused either by muscular tension or vaginal stenosis (narrowing), arising from conditions such as cysts, post-infection changes or following radiotherapy treatment, vaginal dilators can be very effective in helping to easy the pain. These are usually available in sets of gradually increasing size, allowing for progressive dilation exercises, carried out at a pace that feels comfortable to you.

Anal Pain: Both men and women report experiencing pain during anal intimacy, particularly when first starting to explore this aspect of their sexuality. Lubrication will help to some extent, but the use of specially designed anal dilators means you can learn to relax at your own pace, enabling you to gradually move from a feeling of comfort to the experience of pleasure.
