# What causes vaginal discomfort during intercourse?
A: Usually, when women complain of pain during s*x, we try to understand exactly the cause. We always try to differentiate ourselves if it happens with the penetration or with the pushing motion in the actual sexual intercourse that causes the pain in s * x.
Sometimes, positions can make the difference, and if someone feels pain in one position but not in another, it may simply be related to the orientation of his pelvis during that particular position.
There is a difference between painful s*x because it’s rough sex or pain because it is painful and something is wrong.
Something to consider is the frequency with which this pain is felt and the frequency of the pain. If you find that every time you have s!x or change your position, it does not really change the pain you feel during s*x, so it is more likely that this is the reason why it occurs.
A good indicator is that the pain is due to what we call vaginismus, which is like spasm of the vag!na. If someone used to have a history of sexual trauma in the past, it could suggest more pain during s*x.
If someone is suffering from endometriosis, which is a pelvic pain disorder, this can lead to painful intercourse that needs to be assessed. In addition, fibroids can grow on the pelvis and cause pain during intercourse. If someone has a sexually transmitted disease and their cervix is inflamed, it could cause some of the pain during intercourse.
In all these cases, you will definitely want to talk to your gynecologist to make sure you are tested and treated for any STIs or other problem you are having.
