Hello doctor,

I feel pain during sex. I had bleeding for the first time when I tried, so I thought it is easy to take it, but it hurt me. So I stopped him now, I cannot have sex.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Pain during such a pleasurable thing like sex is a spoiler. There are a few common causes of severe pain during sex.

1. Any unhealed injury or abrasion in the vagina.

2. Any infection in the genital tract.

3. Doing sex while the vagina is still dry.

4. Uncomfortable or unrealistic sex position.

First, you need to assure you are not having any injury or painful spot in the vagina. If that is not the issue, you should look for any foul-smelling discharge from the vagina, which is indicative of infection. Thirdly do lots of foreplay before sex to naturally lubricate the vaginal canal and use lubricants like K-Y Jelly while doing sex. Always try a sex position which is comfortable and pleasurable for you. Do not just follow the lorn clips.
