Vaginal Pain or Discomfort

Some women have pain with intercourse due to vaginal dryness. Vaginal lubrication occurs in response to sexual arousal. If you are not sufficiently aroused before penetration, intercourse may be painful.

Even with sufficient arousal, some women still do not produce enough lubrication.

You can try an over-the-counter lubricant such as Astroglide or K-Y Lubricant to help with these symptoms.

This dryness is often especially bothersome for women after menopause.

Are you in or beyond menopause (have not had your period for over a year)?

Yes, I am menopausal.

No, I have not reached menopause.
