Butt And Lower Pain During Sex

Butt And Lower Pain During Sex

I just had sex for the third time ever but for the second and third time, I felt a sharp pain shoot from my butt and lower back. I didn’t feel the pain in my lower abdomen though. The pain was worse off when doing the doggy style. Is this normal during the first times you have sex or I actually have endometriosis.

Sex should never be painful but there’s so many things that can affect it. I’m guessing you have a male partner? I’m also guessing you have not had surgery to diagnose Endo?

First thing is whether you were sufficiently aroused. If there’s not enough foreplay, the vagina might not open and lubricate enough. If that’s not the problem, then it definitely could be Endo, as that can cause painful sex. Often it’s from Endo implants, which commonly live between the vagina and red Tim. It can also be from pelvic floor muscle tension from years of clenching against pelvic pain.

Talk to your doc and consider excision surgery along with pelvic floor physical therapy and maybe sex therapy. Nancy’s Nook on Facebook is a good resource. Lots of articles and a list of excision surgeons.
