It hurts me to have sex with my partner - he's gentle but the first few minutes are really painful (like a knife), it seems to ease a bit then.I had a pap smear last year and it was agony - I had to tell the nurse to stop, and she had to try a second time which was really painful but I had to bear it or it wouldn't have got done.I've told the dr and she said it may be dryness, or me tensing up.Has anyone got any suggestions - I want my sex life back :(

  • It could be vaginismus. Its when muscles inside the vagina contract making penetration/intercourse painful or even impossible. Vaginismus.com is a great website to look at for this. It is almost always curable. Hope everything works out for you!

  • I had the same problem. Incredible pain every time my husband and I had intercourse. My son was born C-Section, my 2nd child vaginally. Yup, you guessed it, the vaginal birth fixed my problem. It must have stretched things out. No reason to get pregnant though, please. Just thought I would tell you about my problem.
