"It hurts when I do it"
I enjoy sex a lot. However, I’ve recently started to experience pain during intercourse. What could be causing this discomfort? – Harriette
I’m so sorry you’re experiencing discomfort during sex. That is definitely something to investigate because sex should not be painful. The fact that it is could relate to one of several things, all of which should be considered and ruled out, until a diagnosis can be confirmed.
Initially, I wonder how old you are? If you are young or youngish, infection needs to be ruled out, especially if you are not using condoms for safer sex with your partner(s).
Periods and fibroids – these can cause discomfort during sex. If you are older, menopausal tissue changes contribute to pain during sex. This can be helped by a variety of things, but you really need to see your doctor and be examined for this.
There are too many possibilities not to take this change seriously. So I urge you to go to your doctor, have some tests run and be treated appropriately.– Helen
