Painful Intercourse/Dyspareunia

No matter how much they might love or desire their partner, both men and women can experience pain through intercourse.Women can experience pain when they are not fully aroused, or with some penetration positions. However, pain can also be caused by pelvic infections and other medical conditions.
In men, arousal can be painful if the foreskin is tight.

Provided that the pain is not caused by a medical condition, then sex therapy is extremely good at helping you develop rich, satisfying sexual relationship with your partner.
Vaginismus and vestibulodynia are common types of dyspareunia in women, and there is additional information on this under ‘penetration difficulties’.
