Two in five women will experience vaginal discomfort or painfully bad sex. Pain can be in the vagina and the area just outside of it, or inside the pelvis too. Pain may be temporary and transient, however for many women it can be a prolonged condition.
Sex should never be painful. Sexual wellness greatly impacts you, your partner and your relationships. Many conditions can cause vaginal pain and painful sex. Dryness is the most frequent reason, but there are many other conditions that impact sexual wellness across women's life stages.
