Q. Does Sex Hurt the First
The first time a woman has sex, it may or may not be painful.
There may be psychological and physical reasons for it. If you
are not sure about your partner or if you are not entirely
convinced about the timing and place, then you may feel more
pain than you should. If you and your partner truly care for one
another and he is gentle and understanding and will go slowly,
then there may be less discomfort.

is torn. Using large amounts of a water-based lubricant may help. If you
have been using tampons, that may have helped to stretch your hymen.

There may be a host of reasons for painful intercourse. Pain on initial
penetration is often due to infection, spasm of the vaginal muscles or
inadequate lubrication. Pain on deeper thrusting may be caused by
endometriosis, adhesions (scar tissue), a retroverted (backward-tilting)
uterus or fibroids. Pain in only one particular position may simply mean

gynaecologist for a thorough checkup.
Q. I suffer bleeding after
Intercourse. Is it cause to worry?
Bleeding after intercourse (post-coital bleeding in doctor talk) can
occur for several reasons. Infection is one of the most common reasons.
Abnormal cervical cells, including cancer, are also more easily
irritated and may bleed with intercourse. Women who use an IUD or
diaphragm may experience such bleeding from irritation and friction.
Sometimes the bleeding is not from the cervix, but rather from a tear in
the vagina; tears can happen with vigorous sex or if you are dry.
