I am 22, my girlfriend 21. We have what seems to be a physical issue getting intimate. She complains of general pain and discomfort when we have intercourse. This has been going on for a couple of years now and she still is hesitant to see a doctor. We were both virgins at meeting and I know her first time was very painful, so much so we could not continue for a week or so. I am not sure if that would be involved or not. What should we do?

Hi sapphire,

Have you had a chance to take a look at this article?
From OW! to WOW! Demystifying Painful Intercourse

Also, if she is having pain and discomfort during intercourse? Then you should stop having intercourse until you work out a way for it not to hurt.

Thank you for the quick response and link. I was looking for a post on here before, and just couldnt find it. We have stopped for now, but she still will not go to the doctor, and I know that she should, for fear there is something wrong. Thanks again!

You're welcome. Whether or not she decides to go to a healthcare provider is up to her, although if she is having pain in her genitals at times other than during intercourse, then she should definitely go.

However, as you saw in the link, painful intercourse often has more to do with arousal and lubrication issues than with more sever medical causes. So it might be worth exploring those causes as well, and she may want to do so on her own via masturbation.
