Pain During Sex

Facts:

  • In the USA more than 9 million women experience pain with intercourse.
  • Women of all ages may be affected
  • In younger women, pain is due to a small vaginal opening and/or a partner with a wide penis
  • As women become older, declining estrogen levels associated with perimenopause and menopause lead to decreased elasticity of the vaginal opening
  • Relationships can deteriorate when there is less intimacy
  • Men continue to be interested in intercourse, while the affected woman may feel angry with their partner for wanting something which causes her pain
