-- Question: Is Pain During Sex Normal, And When Should I See A Doctor?
Answer: The medical term for pain during sex is 'dyspareunia,' and it's a problem almost exclusively experienced by women. Most cases are simply the result of insufficient relaxation of the vaginal muscles or not enough lubrication and there's usually an emotional component.
However, there are some situations where more serious problems might cause pain during sex. These include pelvic inflammatory disease, infection of the cervix, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis. So if relaxation techniques and improvement of lubrication don't work, you should see your doctor.
