Since your partner alone have pain and not you. need to know vaginal pain during sex.
1.     Infection in vagina can be one of the common cause, which leads to dryness. infection can be from bad hygiene from both the partner, public toilets
2.     Dryness – infection, improper foreplay, dehydration, age factor, hormonal imbalance all can cause pain during sex. adequate foreplay and use of Ky gel will be helpful.
3.     Doing Forceful sex can cause pain.
4.     Benign or malignant polyp can cause pain during sex, needs gynecologist review.
5.     Foreign bodies can be caused due to the use of sex toys.
6.     Anatomical abnormalities.
7.     vaginismus - can be caused due to anxiety. few female fear of sex and their vaginal muscle will constrict during sex, making it painful sex.
8.     Eczema can cause pain.
9.     Deep penetration with different position in sex can cause pain.
10.     History of surgery.

Hi, whenever I had tried to have ontercourse with my husband, during penetration that is sharp pain for me. Involuntarily I close in and not allow penetration. While trying fingering, one finger works however when 2 fingers inserted there is sharp pain, very painful. Is this normal? This was bothering and weighing down on us phychologhically too. I decided to meet my gyne and she prescribed lignocaine 2 % gel. However the pharmacy dint have lignocaine and gave me an option to use lidocaine hydrochloride. Here are my questions: 1) can use of lidocaine hydrochloride help me overcome pain. Can this be substituted for lignocaine gel? 2) what steps would you advise for me and hubby for psychologically fell better. We both love each other madly. But intercourse seem to bog us down due to my pain 3) also doc advice me to use dialator with the gel. How many times I can use this ok on me before trying intercourse.
