Pain or Discomfort During Sexual Intercourse
Your monthly period is not the only thing affected by uterine fibroids. When left untreated, fibroids can adversely affect your general well-being and sexual health.
The pain experienced during sexual intercourse is frequently reported as a fibroid symptom. Nearly 15 million women report having symptoms of fibroids every year in the U.S. Recognizing how fibroid pain affects sexual health is crucial to maintaining overall wellness and eliminating fibroid-related discomfort.
Let’s look at the intersection between fibroids and pain during sexual intercourse.
Why do fibroids affect sexual intercourse?
First, we would like you to know it is not normal for you to experience excessive bleeding, pain, or pressure during or right after sexual activity.
When you experience pain during sexual intercourse, abdominal pain, or overly long menstrual periods, fibroids might be the cause.
Many factors contribute to fibroid-related sexual pain, including the following:
- Cervical proximity
- Putting pressure on fibroids during sex
- Positioning during sexual activity
- Pressure placed on fibroids during uterine orgasm contractions
Having good communication is essential. We urge you to openly communicate to your partner any issues you may have about your comfort during sexual activity.
It’s important to receive treatment for pain or other issues that become worse or persist after sexual intercourse.
