Discomfort during sexual intercourse

Discomfort during sexual intercourse

Question:

- I have sexual contacts with my husband and during the contact there are strong pains in the uterus area can it be a cyst or an attachment? There are strong pains.

Answer:


The discomfort or pain arising at the time of sexual contact may have an anatomical or functional substrate (the medical term is disappearing).
The most common causes of an disappearance relate to the following aspects:

  • it may be a simple mismatch between you and your partner from an anatomical point of view, or techniques and positions during sexual contact that may cause pain by inducing the onset of inflammation at this level;
  • the lack of prelude or insufficient sexual stimulation at the time of penetration may be the cause of inefficient lubrication at the time of sexual intercourse;
  • an imbalance of the sex hormones may be the reason why you present this symptomatology (mainly an insufficient secretion of estrogens, largely responsible for trophic control and vaginal humidification);
  • the presence of ovarian cysts can cause disappearance both by their simple presence (changes the relationships between the pelvic organs and causes an inflammatory pelvic reaction) as well as by the hormonal disorders that usually accompany it
  • as you have suspected, pain can occur as a result of an infection of the genitals - in this case, the infection once treated causes in most cases the disappearance of pain during sexual contact;
  • there may be other causes not necessarily related to the genitals but to the neighboring organs (eg bladder, kidney, rectum);
  • rarer, it can be an allergic reaction to latex (if you use a condom).
    The etiological diagnosis of the disappearance (specifying the cause of this symptomatology) is made by comparing the result of the clinical observations during the specialized consultation with the description of the subjective accusations and with the result of the paraclinical investigations.
    So I recommend that you go to a gynecological office to evaluate the situation. In the meantime, what you can do with your partner is to approach the sexual act in a more relaxed way, to allow more time for the prelude and any action to be accompanied by the acceptance of each one of you.
