  2. Dear audreywinnie,

    Pain during or after sex is called “dyspareunia”, and can be caused by various reasons, including:

    – An infection like UTI (urinary tract infections), sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as thursh caused by chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes…
    Vaginismus, a condition in which the muscles ir and/or around the vagina shut tightly, which makes sex painful or impossible in the most severe cases. Read more: What Is Vaginismus?
    – A psychological cause, such as stress.
    – Genital irritation, vaginal swelling, or allergy caused by the use of spermicides, products such as soap or shampoo, or latex condoms (if you’re allergic to latex).
    – Menopause: changing hormone levels can dry your vagina (You haven’t mentioned your age, but I assume that this may not be the cause).

    If the pain you feel comes from the pelvis, it may be caused by conditions such as PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease), endometriosis, constipation, fibroids, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), etc.

    As for the fact that you’re experiencing trouble reaching orgasms, it is a consequence of painful sexual intercourse. When sex hurts, it is more difficult for you to get sexually aroused, which makes it impossible for you to climax.

    My advice is that you see your GP or go see a sexual health specialist to help you find the cause behind your problem.

    I hope I have been able to help,

    Best wishes
