1. Not enough lubrication

Do not self-medicate! In our articles, we collect the latest scientific data and the opinions of authoritative health experts. But remember: only a doctor can diagnose and prescribe treatment.

Although the vagina lubricates itself, it will suffer from dryness if not sufficiently aroused or heavily intoxicated. Just use lubricants!


2. You are allergic

Lubricants are made with various chemicals that can upset the balance of microflora in the vagina. The same goes for things like condoms.

3. Ingrown hair

Sometimes unsuccessful epilation can cause irritation, which will cause discomfort.

4. Wrong positions

Experimenting is always great, but that doesn’t mean you have to try every possible pose. Choose the ones that suit you and are comfortable for your partner.

5. It can be big

No, the penis will never be too big to wear a condom. However, for your vagina, it can easily be too big and cause discomfort.


6. You recently gave birth

Your libido will return to normal only after some time after childbirth. Typically, this takes four to six weeks.

7. Venereal disease

There is nothing pleasant about any of them. All infections and inflammatory processes will give you a lot of trouble, so try to avoid them in any way.

8. You are a virgin

Probably, in this case, some discomfort can be expected, because defloration represents a certain invasion of the body.

9. You haven’t had sex in a long time

If you do not have sex for a long time, the sensations become dull. Of course, you shouldn’t be writing sex in your diary because of this, but just know that if you haven’t done so since the first season of Game of Thrones, you will be uncomfortable.

10. The prelude is too short

Forget all the scenes of sudden and violent sex from the movies. Too much rushing into sex can create unnecessary friction in the vagina and terribly unpleasant sensations, so don’t neglect a thorough foreplay.
