What Causes Painful Intercourse (Sex)?

Pain during intercourse is one of the most common causes of problems of sexual dysfunction. The prevalence of such pain seems to be increasing over time. Possible reasons for this apparent increased prevalence include the following:

Changes in sexual behavior

An increase in the frequency of sexually transmitted diseases

Increased willingness to discuss sexual behavior and dysfunction

Due to thinning and dryness of the vaginal walls after menopause, some women report that sex is more painful than prior to menopause.

Vulvodynia is a condition that causes chronic pain in the vulvar area that is not related to a known cause. Women with vulvodynia may experience pain with sexual intercourse.

Other conditions that can cause painful intercourse include

injuries or irritation of the vagina due to any cause,

infections,

vaginismus (muscle spasms of the vaginal wall muscles),

urinary tract infection, and

skin conditions that affect the genital areas.
