Pain When Having Sex When Pregnant?
Sorry to bother you, I want to ask, am I pregnant at the age of 4 months, a further 5, but when I was in a relationship with my husband when I was in pain, I felt a little numb to the pain, then right after I made the hub I would disappear in a few hours, and my question is when I want to defecate, my vagina hurts, is that the effect of pregnancy or how can I ask for help?
Sexual intercourse during pregnancy is actually a safe activity and may be done during pregnancy in a healthy condition. However, in some pregnant women may experience complaints of pain or pain during intercourse. The pain can be caused because the vagina is drier or less lubricated and also more easily irritated. There may also be anxieties in pregnant women which causes the body to relax less so when intercourse becomes uncomfortable.
But in addition to the above, complaints of pain during intercourse can also be influenced by the following conditions:
Injury or injury to the vagina
Infection and inflammation of the vagina and cervix
Currently in the period of treatment with chemotherapy and radiotherapy
Certain medical conditions: ovarian cysts, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, cervical polyps, hemorrhoids, sexually transmitted diseases
Is there bleeding after having sex? If there is bleeding, or the pain does not improve soon, I suggest that you see a gynecologist directly so that further testing can be done to ascertain the cause of the pain you are feeling. You will get the treatment given by the doctor according to the results of the examination.
For the time being while waiting to see a doctor, you can do the following tips:
Get enough rest
Warm or cold compresses (which are more comfortable) on the painful area
Double check whether there is bleeding or not
Manage stress well
Discuss with your obstetrician about the safety of intimate relationships in your pregnancy
Do a longer foreplay
Only penetrate when you feel ready
Find the position that is most comfortable for you when having sex
Routine control with an obstetrician
Hope it helps you,
