I think we need a little more information in order to help you. First, I’m assuming you’re female, is that correct!? Also, how old are you? What kind of pain are you having? I know that as women get older, the vaginal tissues become thinner & are more likely to be injured. Many women neating menopause complain of pain during intercourse. It’s been said that without frequent sexual activity, the situation gets somewhat worse because there’s no lubrication. I believe there are hormonal (estrogen) creams that can be applied to the vaginal area that help restore the tissues. You can try that & if still having problems, see your Dr or Gyne. Hope this helps...

OK - that kind of confirms for me what I was suggesting. You could try looking online for estrogen creams to be applied to the vaginal area that make the tissues more elastic & possibly less dry & that should help. Also use a good lube fairly generously & te-apply during sex if needed. I’m sure your partner won’t mind a little extra slipperiness, should feel good for him too!

If these self-help solutions don’t give you relief, you may need to see a Gynecologist to confirm diagnosis & possibly some stronger Rx-strength meds.

Good luck, and just remember, as long as you still have a healthy ‘appetite’ for sexual activity, there’s no reason you can’t continue it for many more years. And if it ever gets to the point that intercourse is just too painful (even w/ the meds), remember that there are many other ways for couples to please each other.
