Why Lovemaking Becomes Painful?

There is a story in Hindu Purana.... Once, among gods, there sprang up a quarrel, rather an argument. Who enjoys sex more, man or women? No one could answer this question as women knew not how men feel lovemaking and men could never measure the amount of satisfaction women enjoys from sexual act. But... There was a person who could clear the doubt of gods, a 'Maharshi' who had to live for a particular duration as a women because of a curse and had enjoyed sex in both forms, as a man and as a woman.

The Maharshi gave an answer to the satisfaction of gods... The answer was 'Women'. Yes, it is a proven fact that women enjoys lovemaking than men do. If lovemaking a physical need to men, women most of the times see sexual act as an emotional symbol. At this point it is relevant to ask this question; Is lovemaking always pleasurable for all the women? Does anyone experience pain instead of enjoying the moments?

Pain during intercourse is a problem that is so emotional and sensitive that many women find it difficult to consult a physician. But it"s important to seek treatment, and in many cases the cause is a physical illness that can be treated. Recommendations to prevent painful intercourse include using a water-based lubricant, a vaginal moisturizer and Kegel exercises. Any women experiencing pain during intercourse should consult a physician or a trained sex therapist. The first step towards treating the pain related to intercourse is to understand this as an illness rather a disability. There can be various reasons behind the pain and most of the times it could be easily curable. Therefore speak openly to your partner and seek the proper treatment from the proper person. It is a misconception that if anyone experience pain during intercourse, she is disinterested in sexual act or disabled to enjoy sex.

Painful intercourse can often have a destructive emotional effect on a relationship. Sometimes couples split up because of it. Therefore it is necessary that one should get the problem sorted out as soon as possible and seek treatment if needed. It is emotional obligation of both the partners to join hands to solve all the issues related to sexual life.
