Do you rise in ecstasy when you are getting down with your partner or do you squeeze your face in pain? Pain during and after sex is something most women experience. Why this pain? Let's find out:
Causes of vaginal pain during sex
When having sex, it is common to feel a subtle pain especially if your partner penetrates deep into you. But when there is no such deep penetration and you feel pain even when he is still trying to penetrate, then something must be wrong and it may be one of these reasons
Infections such as vaginal thrush, urinary tract infection, and sexually transmitted disease could be the cause of the pain you are feeling down there. Other inflammatory conditions such as endometriosis, blocked Fallopian tubes, cervix inflammation could also cause pain during sex.
Thrush is common with women who are pregnant, and those who wear tight clothing. Other causes of thrush come from antibiotics medication or products that irritate the vagina.
Sexually transmitted diseases will cause symptoms such as heavy vaginal discharge followed by itching, and general pains.
Lack of lubrication
You are probably experiences a dry spell down there due a messed up hormone, some medications or birth control pills you are taking or simply because you are not aroused but your sex partner wants sex at that moment.
Lack of lubrication can be as a result of vaginal dryness caused by menopause or thyroid problems.
Birth control pills can cause vagina dryness and subsequent pain during sex in even a younger woman of 25 years. New birth control pills that are currently made do not have sufficient estrogens; the hormone responsible for women’s feeling of sexual arousal. They also contain a type of progestin which is capable of lowering testosterone in women.
Vaginal structural problems
If you have just delivered a baby or you went through great difficulties to give birth and probably had vaginal tearing that is still trying to heal, then you might feel great pains when getting down with your partner. Other structural problems include female circumcision, uterine fibroid, a cyst or an abnormal hymen.
Vaginismus is a condition where the vagina and the pelvic floor muscles tighten for no apparent reason. This condition can make sex painful especially when there is a forced penetration. Vaginismus is caused by a lot of thing such as sexual abuse, using tampons etc. Vaginismus can be so severe that sometimes the vagina does not even get to open. It makes the vaginal muscles clench so hard you cannot even penetrate a little. And because it can happen anytime, some women experience it during sex which makes sex painful.
Vulvodynia is a chronic pain condition that causes pain around the vulva region. Anything can trigger these pain even minor things like sitting or riding a bike. As long as it puts pressure on the vulva, you are likely to experience pain. The cause of this chronic condition is unknown but can cause pains during sex.

The importance of healthy nutrition to the body cannot be overemphasized, it can especially help you stay fitter, healthier, and keep out unwanted fat deposits from the body. An excellent nutritional plan will also significantly improve your bedroom life, it can induce a tremendous physical and emotional health which can promote high sex drive. You don't have to hit a slump in your bedroom life before you pay attention to the things that you eat.
It is essential to focus more on the whole, natural food choices that are rich in fiber and have low to moderate calorie content. An excellent selection of diet should include vegetables, legumes, fruits, lean meat, nuts, non-fat dairy products, fish, and whole grain. These foods are known to increase your metabolic rate, increase satiety, improve cognitive performance, enhance blood and nutrient circulation, and ultimately give you a better sexual life that you can be proud of.
Studies have shown that foods that improve general heart health and improve the circulatory system are very potent in promoting sexual health. Just as impaired blood flow to the brain, heart, and limbs can have serious medical complications, decreased blood flow to the genitals can cause severe erectile dysfunction. In any case, there's bound to be a significant improvement in your sexual health if you make an attempt to improve on your nutrition and incorporate healthy choices of food into your diet.
Here is a selection of great food choices to include in your diet in order to have a healthier sexual lifestyle.
· Lean protein (Meat)
Proteins are very essential for muscle contraction, repair, and formation. Lean proteins, such as pasture-raised beef, and chicken, contain vital amino acids, e.g., L-arginine and carnitine, which can enhance blood circulation that is in turn, crucial for sexual arousal in both sexes.
Apples, along with cherries, berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries), grapes and onions, are laden with antioxidants such as quercetin, a type of flavonoid. Quercetin helps to guard the sexual organs against infections, such as interstitial cystitis (associated with genital pain, low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, and genital pain) and prostatitis (causes inflammation of the prostate gland and can lead to painful ejaculation and testicular discomfort).
· Onions and Garlic
Onion is an excellent source of plenty of minerals that can help strengthen the organs, regulate blood sugar, stimulate the release of testosterone, increase libido, encourage the production of good HDL cholesterol. Garlic is known to improve sexual stamina, it's anticoagulant property will enhance circulation and ensure blood flow to the sexual organs.
Salmon is also a good choice of food to incorporate into your diet in order to improve your sexual life. Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids which are fundamental to sexual health. Omega-3 fatty acids effectually enhance blood circulation and prevent plaque's buildup in the arteries. Salmon also helps to cut the risk of prostate cancer.
While diets alone may not be sufficient in reversing severe instances of sexual dysfunction such as impotence, severe sexual pain, lack of sexual desire, among others, it is always recommended to seek help from your healthcare practitioner in order to enjoy your sexual relationship with your partner.

Men might not admit when it occurs, but they feel romantic at particular moments in relationships, just like women do. Sure, society has trained us to “man up” and not get too emotional about things — good luck overcoming those feelings. But honestly, it’s not healthy to hold all those emotions in. Men, you recognize you want to let those feelings out, especially when you’re with a lady who can get your romantic side to come out. So ladies, if you think you don’t know how to make us melt you’re probably not giving yourself enough credit.
A friendly, inviting smile is a surefire way to seduce any man. Flashing him these pearly whites of yours is probably the primary reason he got caught in the first place. Next time you’re with your man, smile at him while gazing deep into his eyes, bat your eyelashes, and coyly ask “What?” When he halts like a deer in searchlights, that’s when you know you’ve got him. (Most ladies already do this, by the way.)
2.) Looking At One Another From Afar.
Whether it’s a restaurant or a cookout or a bar, it’s great when you’re a slight distance away from your other half but still close enough to see each other’s facial expressions. It’s the kind of glance where you two share a smirk and know precisely what the other is thinking. That mind reading type of chemistry is astonishing when you find it. It’s also remarkably distracting, especially when those glances are packed with sexual purposes. Is it time to go home yet?
3.) Sending Sex Appealing And Naughty Texts.
The “I miss you” are adorable and all, but it’s the sex appeal “I can’t imagine we’re alone later ;)” texts that get a guy’s attention. The timing of those texts adds to the moment, too. Having a distressed day at the office or sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic — getting a well-timed saucy text from the girl you’re dating can brighten up the darkest day. There’s nothing hotter than a woman who talks the talk and walks the walk. These texts are mental foreplay that give you and your partner some sexual stimulation.
4.) Sharing Intimate Aspects About Herself.
It can be difficult for women (and men) to initiate a conversation about personal stories. Revealing intimate aspects of her past shows, she trusts you with her emotions, and more precisely, her heart. If she starts a convo with “I haven’t told too many people this,” it indicates you’re not just another guy. Intimate details help develop rapport, which quickly leads to a healthier sexual relationship. If you feel relaxed opening up to him, do it – he’ll feel honored that you aren’t holding back, and you’ll be well on your way to a stable bond.
5.) Giving You A Unique Gift That Relates To A Conversation You Once Had.
When she surprises you with something you talked about for only a second a few weeks ago, it shows that she’s intensely listening to what you have to say. She also wants to show you she cares and that even the tiniest detail matters to her. It’s not about the cost of the gift; it is the thought that counts here, sometimes the least gifts speak the loudest. Don’t forget to say thank you — and pay it forward with a return gift of your own.
