Pain After Sex| Causes of Lower Abdominal Pain After Intercourse

Although sex can be enjoyable, some women are turned off by the idea because of the sharp stab of pain felt along the abdominal area. Pain after sex is not uncommon and can actually be linked to several causes. Medically, the term used is dyspareunia. If you are currently having this problem, following are some possibilities on how to address and solve the case.

Emotional Problems

Dyspareunia can also be linked to stress or emotional problems that cause the vagina to clamp up and experience pain. Studies show that stress makes it hard for the vagina to lubricate, therefore causing pain upon and after penetration.

Improper Lubrication

Although a woman may not be stressed out; her vagina might not be lubricated enough to facilitate intercourse. This is often due to very little arousal on the female, hence causing an abrasive penetration. The use of a lubricant might be necessary at this point. Extended foreplay is also crucial, allowing for sufficient secretion of vaginal fluid.

Surgeries or Medical Scarring

Pain After SexIf a person has gone through surgeries involving this body part, the pain can be caused by the penis rubbing on the scarring or some other body part. Even some medications can cause changes to females, leading to sexual pains even if they have never gone under the knife. Treatment for cancer is one of the most common culprits for this type of problem. Traumatic accidents and female circumcisions have also been pointed out as possible reasons.

Vaginismus

These are involuntary spasms by the vaginal walls, causing difficult penetration. This can be the symptom of another problem that needs to be addressed medically.

Eczema

Eczema and other skin disorders can also be a cause for the pain. With the penis rubbing in the affected area, this causes a “burn” which eventually starts to throb and become painful at anytime during and after penetration.
Some couples find that changing positions during intercourse helps with the pain. Remember however that sex should never be a painful experience regardless of your sexual position. Note that dyspareunia is not a problem itself but rather a symptom of something else. Hence, having a check up with a doctor is the most ideal course of action for sufferers regardless of the severity of the pain.
Patients are advised to take note of exactly when the pain starts. Does it happen during penetration or after repeated thrusts? This will help doctors narrow down the problem and hopefully prescribe the best way to deal with the condition.
