General Q and A Answer A61806
Post coital discomfort is common for women who have recently become sexually active.

Lack of experience, possible fungal infections, tissue abrasions and contusions due to lack of proper lubrication are the most common causes of such soreness.

In most cases, the symptoms would subside on its own without treatment.

But in case, it is intolerable, use of antiinflammatory agents (Ibuprofen), use of proper lubrication can help ease the symptoms and help in faster recovery.

If in doubt, you may consult with your doctor and seek a proper opinion.
