why does it hurt when i get turned on
Okay guys, I have the answer but it isn t something you ll want to hear! I know what pain you re talking about because it started, for me, right during/after my first pregnancy. Doctor initally called it endometriosis which is what I went with until after my third child. The pain is VERY bad during pregnancy and is because of the blood flow to all your wonderful lady parts. One day I lucked out and went to see my gyno when I was having the EXACT Blue Balls feeling and--are you ready for this? --he was shocked and immediately able to CORRECTLY diagnose this:
Ladies, I have varicose veins. In my vaginal area. He said he hadn t seen them before, even though I d been having the pain for years, because I have never seen him WHILE in pain. If you have varicose veins anywhere else (like the legs) you ll know the exact deep aching un-ignorable pain that it causes. and that it s the exact same horrible pain in your crotch/upper-inner thighs. The worst part? They can t do anything for me until I m done having children. which is who knows when.
And it s very difficult to diagnose unless you re in the midst of the pain because, frankly, who wants to see your OB when you ve got all that blood flow to your groin in the first place? Hope this helps!!! If you're finding sex painful, you're not alone: a whopping 30% of women reported pain during their last sexual encounter, according to the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behaviour. Here are the main reasons why it happens, and how to reduce it: 1. Vaginal dryness due to lack of arousal We've all been there: you're not in the mood and simply aren't getting turned on. Lack of arousal is an extremely common cause of painful sex. , social psychologist, sex researcher and agony aunt at The Telegraph says that lack of arousal is by far the most common reason for painful sex. "I'm asked about vaginal dryness and pain due to lack of arousal every single day. Not a day goes by that I don't get asked about it. " When you're not getting turned on and you don't produce enough fluid for lubrication, the rubbing will cause friction, heat, and burning.
This pain can last for hours, or sometimes days. Petra explains that women may get wet during foreplay but they don't necessarily stay wet during penetration, and on top of that oral sex could even be making things even worse "Oral sex can cause even more irritation and often people find that strange as they think saliva can be used as lubrication. In fact, it's not very good because it just dries and makes it sore. But the penetrative sex, either the rubbing of chaffing, dries you out. Or all the things that got you wet have stopped and although it may be enjoyable it may not necessarily be what women want. " So what's the solution to something that so many women experience? Petra suggests doing the things that you enjoy more, which may not be the penetration. "There are always good reasons to why you are not getting wet and to change that requires you to find a bit more about your body, and for you and your partner to talk about it.
It's a barrier many women face. " A simple remedy in this case may be the use of lubrication, which many don't consider. "Many women think that if you're using lubricant you're failing, like you're cheating because it isn't an organic response. Quite often I hear a lot of women say I was turned on but wasn't wet enough and in that situation using a lubricant makes sense. " 2. Menopause and post-menopause A survey by, said that a staggering 88% admitted to experiencing vaginal dryness, and many are uninformed or too embarrassed to ask about it. During the menopause many women experience changes in the vagina (the blood supply, support, elasticity, sensitivity, lubrication and responsiveness of the vagina) that can cause a lot of discomfort. This is due to the lack of estrogen, which causes dryness and thinning of the vaginal tissues making sex uncomfortable and painful. Karen Morton, gynaecologist and obstetrician at says, "If you're taking HRT, you shouldn't really need anything else.
But if for one reason or the other you aren't, then put some estrogen cream, or an estrogen pessary, into the vagina twice a week. This will be plenty to keep the tissue well-nourished and healthy and resistant to germs. " 3. Breastfeeding Your body goes through so many changes after childbirth and having sex may be the last thing on your to-do list. You may be tender from stitches after childbirth or just more tired and understandably not so keen, but Karen says many women don't realise that when you're breastfeeding you're essentially menopausal and that's why you don't have periods. "Breastfeeding effects your hormones, the levels of estrogen will be lower just like during menopause. So the vagina will be dry and undernourished, a bit like sandpaper. This can easily be treated by rubbing some estrogen cream to nourish it. In this case, lubricant will work as well. " 4. Vaginal tear
