Pain with penetration
Posted on: 04/12/2010
When having intercourse with my boyfriend, I experience a lot of pain upon penetration. The pain is more of a burning/stinging sensation. It happens about four out of six times that we have intercourse. Is this normal? Why does this happen?
Well first make sure that there is enough lubrication. Get a water-based lubricant to use. Just a couple drops on the outside of the condom. If you are not using a condom and there is plenty of lubrication, I suggest seeing the doctor to be screened for sexually transmitted infections.
