Painful Sex

Dr Rosie King is a specialist in the area of painful sex/intercourse.  Painful sex or intercourse, also known as Dyspareunia, is where you may suffer sudden or ongoing pain during, before or after sexual intercourse.

Painful sex includes:

  • discomfort, burning, stinging, tightness or pain when you attempt intercourse?
  • When you try to have intercourse have you found it difficult or impossible for your partner’s penis to enter your vagina?
  • Can you get the penis only part of the way in?
  • Does it feel like your partner’s penis is hitting a brick wall when penetration is attempted?
  • Do you abandon attempts at intercourse because of pain?
  • Do you find Pap smears painful or impossible?
  • Have you had difficulty inserting a tampon into your vagina?
  • Or are you too scared to even try to have intercourse?
