My boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year, and sometimes when we have sex, we decide to do it again maybe a couple hours later or the next morning. Or the next night.
Most of the time everything feels great the first time and then if I try to have sex again within about a 24-48 hour period, it hurts! It doesn't really hurt all the way inside, but maybe the first inch or two inside my vagina. No matter how much if I want to have sex, sometimes I have to stop because the pain is terrible.
My boyfriend is great, he stops if I tell him I can't do it because he doesn't want to hurt me, but he says he's worried because he doesn't really understand how some days I can be ok and some days it's unbearable.
I can't really explain it either? Does anyone else deal with this? Sometimes I have to refrain from intercourse for a day or two just so I can "give my vagina a break." I feel like the inside of it swells up and gets sore so it makes insertion hurt like crazy. I've been on birth control for about 9 years, but we don't use condoms or lubricants/spermicides, we both get regularly checked and are free from infections.
I guess it's something I will have to deal with since it's been like this throughout our relationship, but maybe someone can explain it with more scientific detail on what's happening?

My suggestion would be that you start using lubricant. If this is only a problem with second round of vaginal entry, then it's very likely due to you being sore from the first round. Using lube should help make you feel less sore.
