Problems in the bedroom? Is discomfort or pain getting in the way?
Many women get to a point in their life where sex becomes a scheduled task. They quite possibly dread it but know they must do it so their partner will continue to feel valued and loved. One worrisome thought is that your relationship could fail or your partner would cheat or leave perhaps if they aren’t getting the “love” or “feeling loved.”That is scary and a huge burden to put on yourself. We never want you to feel like you have to just grit your teeth through sex because of discomfort or pain.
Hormones and psychology do play a large role in sex drive and we will save that conversation for another day. What we want to talk about today is that for many women, especially after babies and after menopause, sex hurts. For some women, they have never orgasmed. For some women, they can’t orgasm anymore. Sometimes this leaves you feeling broken or can leave you feeling guilty. Maybe you just suck it up even though it doesn’t feel good and you just hope that your partner hurries up and finishes because you can barely stand it. You also maybe will fake enjoyment just to ensure your partner doesn’t feel like they are hurting you.
