7 causes of painful sex for women

09 August 2016, 19:00 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Sex can be painful. Here are some causes.

Not enough foreplay=no lubrication

I could have just said no lubrication but some people are clueless that foreplay actually helps. It depends with the woman though, some are ready at the drop of a hat while others need the foreplay. And if you cannot make the time or effort, neither of you will enjoy it because she will be dry. Dry sex is what will cause friction, that will cause burning, that will cause pain for her and finally her not looking forward to it anytime soon.


The minute as a woman, you spot something different going on down there, you need to go get a check-up. Don’t self-medicate or go natural- it might not be what you think or what Google says. That area is very sensitive- just get a check-up. Sores are major culprits in painful sex.


If you have had rough sex, too much sex, 10 hours sex (for the ninjas) - you have had inflammation. Unless you are special. This is when a woman tells you she is too sore. That means she will not enjoy it, it will be painful.

The other cause of inflammation is infection, in this case; get a check-up!


Medication that cause the vagina to dry up which leads to no lubrication and you guessed it, painful sex.


If you see a different climate down there, get a check-up. It might actually be an STD. Herpes, although it takes ages to spot it, is one of those culprits.

She is not into it, turned on

If she is not there, you will know but you will insist and you will not enjoy it because the woman’s brain is very powerful. It controls her emotions and directly her sex life as well.

Child birth

You have to wait until you heal. Your husband might persuade you differently but if you have not healed properly, the pain will kill you.
