Is Sex Painful? 5 Tips To Ease Pain During Sex

Eased down the pain during sex

Whenever sex turns painful you tend to seek out medical assistance. Most of the time your decision might be right but in several cases the whole problem can be traced back to some of your actions made in haste only. When something which was supposed to give you pleasure turns into a nightmare, you tend to get sullen and withdrawn. Most of the conditions causing the pain are easily treatable. Read on below to get some helpful tips on how to reduce the pain and increase the pleasure quotient.

Take it slow - Patience is the key to happiness, be it physical or mental. Don't rush into the act. You should have at least some basic information about what you're getting into. Passion is good but if it is left unleashed it could be very harmful. Don't tense up, it will alleviate your stress level and the enjoyment factor will come down a notch. Relax and get into the mood straight on.

Try After Some Time - For all of you thinking about hitting the ground running without breaking stride there's some bad news. The first time will not necessarily be good, but this does not mean you will lower your expectations. Just take a break. Don't take the incident as a failure. Learn from it then laugh it off.

Lubrication - There is nothing shameful in wanting to reduce your pain! Different type of lubricants are available in the market and just have your pick. Several gynaecologists especially recommend a natural oil for women who have vulvodynia or vestibulitis/vestibulodynia. "A lack of lubrication is hands down the most common cause of painful sex," says Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., associate director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University.

Foreplay - Foreplay helps to set the mood. It distracts you from the pain. Moreover, it leads to arousal. An aroused body secretes enough liquid to lubricate itself. Most women need a good 20 minutes of foreplay to make sure their parts are ready for action.

Discuss Your Thoughts - Share your experience. It will help to solve the first-time problems. Remember that communication is the key to smooth out the process. Seeing a therapist to work through issues such as sexual guilt, shame or trauma could also be helpful in solving the painful intercourse problem.
