Reduce Pain During Sexual Intercourse and Vaginal Penetration
How can a woman reduce or eliminate the pain of sexual intercourse and get more enjoyment from sex?
There are several reasons why a woman may experience pain during sexual intercourse or vaginal penetration. Lubrication and Relaxation may be a simple solution for many women but in some cases the root cause may be more serious and medical attention may be required.
In many cases having stronger pelvic floor muscles will help reduce or even entirely eliminate pain from some of the most common conditions that cause pain during sexual intercourse and vaginal penetration.
- Vaginismus is a condition in which there are muscular spasms in the vagina during intercourse. The causes of this medical condition vary and cause the Kegel (pubococcygeus) muscles to reflexively contract either from fear or as a physical response to vaginal penetration. Kegel exercises with a Kegel exerciser and/or a vaginal dilator or other inter-vaginal stimulator will teach a woman to control and dilate her vagina in preparation for penetration. Better control over the Kegel muscles can completely eliminate the pain caused by vaginismus or reflexive contractions and muscular spasms.
- Cervix Problems if vaginal penetration is extremely deep or excessively forceful the penis can come in contact with the cervix with enough impact to cause pain. Strong pelvic floor and vaginal muscles can help a woman better control the depth of penetration and prevent deep or uncomfortable penetration. A gynecological exam is recommended in cases when a woman suspects there is a medical issue with her cervix.
- Uterine Fibroids and Tumors can cause pain during sexual intercourse and vaginal penetration. Symptoms of uterine fibroids include irregular vaginal bleeding, constipation, lower abdominal pain and pain during sexual intercourse. Any woman that suspects she may have a fibroid, tumor or abnormal growth is encouraged to seek medical attention. Kegel exercises alone will not resolve an issue caused by a fibroid or tumor. Kegel exercises may be recommended as part of recovery or treatment after the removal of a fibroid or uterine tumor.
- Endometriosis is a condition in which the endometrium (tissue lining the uterus) grows outside the uterus. Kegel exercises will not cure Endometriosis.
- Ovarian Cysts may not have any symptoms. Ovarian cysts may cause pelvic pain during intercourse (dyspareunia). Healthy strong pelvic floor and vaginal muscles can alleviate some of the pain of sexual intercourse and penetration. Kegel exercises alone will not treat or eliminate an ovarian cyst. Seek medical attention if you suspect you may have an ovarian cyst.
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease comprises a spectrum of inflammatory disorders of the vagina and female genital tract, including endometritis, salpingitis, tubo-ovarian abscess, and pelvic peritonitis or any combination of these conditions. These conditions are normally treated with antimicrobial and/or antibiotic regimens. It is not recommended to use a Kegel exerciser, stimulator, vibrator or other insertable during inflammation or infection.
- Ectopic Pregnancy is a pregnancy in which a fertilized egg develops outside of the uterus. A woman should seek medical attention to resolve this issue.
- Menopausal after menopause the level of natural lubricating moisture within the vagina can be reduced enough to cause pain during intercourse or vaginal penetration. Artificial lubricants can relieve the pain caused by this. Kegel exercises can also help to reduce or eliminate vaginal pain caused by vaginal dryness after menopause.
- Injury or Damage to Vagina a wound or sore in the skin or a torn muscle from surgery, childbirth, episiotomy or other injury can cause pain during sexual intercourse or vaginal penetration. If the pain and injury is severe a woman should seek medical attention. After adequate healing time Kegel exercises can be an effective treatment in recovery and reduce the chance of future injury.
To reduce pain during sexual intercourse and vaginal penetration I definitely recommend a woman practice Kegel exercises on a regular basis using an internal resistance Kegel exerciser like the Kegelmaster (assuming the pain has not been attributed to a serious health issue or disorder).
The benefits of healthy Kegel (pubococcygeus) muscles goes far beyond simply reducing or eliminating the pain experienced during intercourse and can greatly enhance a woman's enjoyment of sexual intercourse, increase her ability to have stronger more satisfying vaginal orgasm and prevent the occurrence of common health issues including stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse or pelvic floor hernia.
The Kegelmaster Kegel Exerciser is an extremely effective way for a woman to strengthen her Kegel (pubococcygeus) muscles and restore the female pelvic floor musculature.
Conclusion: Painful sex, pain during sexual intercourse and vaginal penetration can be caused by a variety of reasons. A woman should seek medical attention for severe pain or if she suspects there might be a condition requiring investigation and medical treatment.
