Sex should never hurt, of course. But painful sex is a common enough issue that it actually has a medical name. Dyspareunia, or painful intercourse, is any persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs before, during, or after penetrative sex, and it may affect 8% to 20% of women according to some studies.

8 Types Of Discomfort During Intimacy To Be Aware Of

Heather Jeffcoat was asked to contribute to an article at the popular website Bustle about the possible causes, prevention, and therapeutic treatments available for various issues surrounding pain and discomfort during and/or after sexual intercourse.

The article begins with:
