I get pain during sex, not straight away but after a while. Around my g-spot it is the most sensitive and i always make my boyfriend stop because it even hurts when he is still in there but not doing anything, like it stings. (Inside, about an inch or so in, is sore)
I am definitely lubricated enough. I have only recently been feeling the pain.. about a year but during that time i had an 8 month break from sex as i changed partners. i lost my virginity a few years ago and my boyfriend says i am tight.
So i originally thought it was because of that, but now that its been a few years that I've been sexually active and the pain has only just begun, i am concerned that maybe it's because i have slight tears or something? but i have noticed the pain only really occurs straight after my period. Could it be because after a week i have tightened up again? i don't masturbate so should i start? so that i can enjoy sex again.. i also do not have a history with STI's, i am on the pill too..
The symptoms described as pain during and after intercourse can be indicative of vaginal infection,cervicitis,pelvic infection or sexually transmitted infection.
A pelvic examination and Pap smear test would help in giving a better idea whether there is presence of any infection or not.Since it has been present for quite long I would advice you to get a evaluation done by a Gynaecologist and also required investigations.
It is not related with the masturbation.
Till then follow simple measures as:
1)Wear cotton clothes and underwear and avoid wearing any coarse or synthetic material. When doing exercise wear athletic tights or cycling shorts.
2)Wear clean and dry clothes and use a mild detergent to wash them.
3)Wash the area with tea tree oil mixed in water.
