Why Does Sex Hurt?
If sex hurts for you, you’re not alone. Thankfully, treatment options are available so you can get back to enjoying the sex you deserve.
In fact, a large percentage of women of reproductive age experience pain during sex. While it’s a common problem, it’s a very individual problem and can be confusing and worrisome. Not only does a woman experience physical pain but oftentimes, suffers with emotional pain.
It can be confusing when sex seems to hurt out of the blue, especially if you haven’t previously been diagnosed with any pelvic issues. That’s why it’s very important to talk candidly with your OB/GYN. While we know it may be uncomfortable for you to discuss these sensitive issues, our OB/GYNs hear these issues from their patients on a regular basis so again, you’re not alone.

- Bladder infections
