#3:. Make Note of Discomfort That’s Normal and Discomfort That’s Not
Sometimes pain happens during s éx.
The two primary discomforts you might notice once in a while, Streicher says, are pain from being too dry down there and a deeper sensation that could be caused by issues including constipation, a muscle spasm or your partner hitting one of your ovaries (which is more likely if you’re ovulating, as it temporarily increases the size of the ovary).
However, discomfort every time or most times you have s éx is not normal, especially if the feeling lasts for a few hours and is not commensurate with how, ahem, vigorous the s éx was.
If that happens, talk to your doctor, as it could be a sign of a more serious issue like ovarian cysts, fibroids, endometriosis or, more rarely, gynecologic cancers.
