Interviewer: There is pain when you have sexual intercourse. Is this a normal thing or should you be concerned? That's coming up next on The Scope. We're talking today with Dr. Kirtly Parker Jones. She's the expert in all things woman. Jones, we got an e-mail asking about pain during sexual intercourse. That doesn't sound normal, but again, I'm not an expert, so you tell me, is that normal?
Jones: Well, let's talk a little bit about pain with intercourse. It's got a fancy named called "dyspareunia. So first of all, one always needs a little bit more information. My guess is that every single woman on the planet has had dyspareunia, pain with sex, at least first, and that was the first time. It's not uncommon. In fact, it is common for women to have pain with sex the first time.
Now, having said that it probably is normal doesn't mean that it's nice. So let's back up a little bit and talk about why women might have pain with intercourse. Other than the first time, when tissues are getting stretched with intercourse the first time, one always worries about, one, if there's an infection.
So certainly, women who have a yeast infectionsome women with sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea and chlamydia, those are situations where someone could have pain with intercourse. And if it's new pain with the same partner, then one begins to worry about, is it something in the vagina like a yeast infection, is it an infection in the pelvis like a sexually transmitted disease, or do you have an ovarian cyst or something in your pelvis that, when it gets bounced around, hurts a little.
The second concern is for women who are post-menopause or post-partum. So women who are nursing after they give birth have very low estrogens during the time that they nurse, and if they nurse for a long time, meaning more than six months, they might find their tissues get quite thin. And women who are post-menopausal, their tissues, their vaginal tissues, are quite thin, and that hurts. So if it's a post-menopausal woman, we have good reasons to understand that painful intercourse could happen, and we have good treatment.
three, new partners, new positions, new anxieties, is there something about this particular intercourse or this new partner that makes you uncomfortable so you're having sex when you're not actually well-lubricated?
So one begins to say, "Is there something new in your life, a new partner, a new position? Are you using something different?
Are you allergic to some of the sex toys or lubricants that you're using? So are you normal to have pain with sex? And the answer is, yes. Is it nice? And the answer is, no.
