Why Sex Hurts

Lulu M

Not enough lubrication

Increase it naturally by increasing foreplay, incorporating Yoni egg exercises using natural lubricants such as coconut oil –be careful coconut oil can break down condoms.

Genital Infections

Infections such as genital herpes and yeast infections can all cause painful intercourse. If you think you may have an infection, please visit your health practitioner for diagnosis and follow their advice or research alternative remedies.


Irritable bowel syndrome is unpleasant and symptoms can include vaginal pain and overall discomfort in the intestinal region. Diet and stress reduction can help to alleviate symptoms.


 Usually people realize they have endometriosis when they stop using birth control, since birth control is a treatment. If sex is painful visit with your physician to cross this off the list. Surgery is often the promoted treatment so be sure to try natural alternatives first such as a combination of dietary changes, nutrient support, emotional healing, and alternative therapies – such as acupuncture (using fine needles to pierce the skin at strategic points and relieve pain) and phytotherapy (the use of plants and plant extracts for healing).

Pelvic inflammatory disease

Inflamed organs including fallopian tubes, uterus and ovaries generally caused by an infection that spreads to these areas. It is one of the most preventable and treatable causes of infertility. If caught early PID is easy to treat. The PID vaccine is being suggested for all young men and women today. Please do you research, I did not get the vaccine, and I have seen research supporting my decision.


Stress produces a toxic chemical reaction in our body and in my belief is the foundation of the majority of our modern day diseases and health issues. If you can only do one thing in your life, learn to manage your stress. You many not be able to reduce your stressors but you can control how you react to them. As far as sex goes- carve out the time for it and make it special. Allow extra time for foreplay, even if it is solo, to reduce tension and anxiety. Meditate with you Yoni Egg and give yourself permission to relax.

 Too tight

This can be the case!

Foreplay, lubricants and using toys to warm up can help. Also, choosing positions that allow you to control the depth of penetration will make a difference for you too.


Vaginismus is defined as painful spasmodic contraction of the vagina in response to physical contact or pressure (especially in sexual intercourse).  It is a protective reflex after a bad experience. Healing can occur after sexual trauma but you must have compassion for yourself and dedicate the time to healing. In my experience, Yoni Egg practice can assist those healing from sexual trauma. It may be necessary to reach out to an experienced therapist. I also provide one on one consultations specifically about how Yoni Eggs can assist you.



Sex should not be painful. If you are experiencing any pain there may be an underlying cause that can be treated. It could also be stress! This is an opportunity for discussion with your partner, healthcare professional or a friend and get on the road to painless sex!
