One in 10 women feels pain in sex, study says
A survey of five universities in Britain with about 7,000 women between the ages of 16 and 74 showed that dyspareunia, or simply pain in intercourse, is much more common than you might think. > Although there are specific treatments for these problems, experts point out that women still suffer from many taboos about sex that prevent them from seeking help. In addition, in general, pain in sex is wrongly associated with other problems, such as vaginal dryness, anxiety, and lack of pleasure. P>
However, the researchers explain that these problems can have physical, psychological and emotional origins, directly reflecting in pain during sex. In the research, it has been found that many women even avoid sex in order not to deal with pain. "Among younger women, the pain may be related to the fact that they are starting their sex life and feel they have to accept practices that the partner wants, but do not excite them, "says research coordinator Kirstin Mitchell. "Another possibility would be that younger women may become tense because sex is new and they do not feel 100 percent comfortable with their partner."
The work done in conjunction with the health sciences departments , gynecology, psychology and psychiatry at five British universities, found that pain in sex was more common among women in their 50s and 60s and among women aged 16-24 years.
Among women who reported pain during sex (7.5%), about a quarter of them suffer from this problem frequently or in all relationships of the last six months or more. For a third of them, sexual life was unsatisfactory.
Because of the various possible origins for sexual problems, researchers recommend that both women and men who experience any kind of pain or discomfort during sex seek help from either a physician or even a psychologist or sex therapist.
Crying in a stressful situation can be a good sign. A study conducted at St. Paul-Ramsey Medical Center in Minnesota found that tears release hormones that represent physical or emotional exhaustion. Substances like prolactin, andreneocorticotrophic, leucine, and enkephalin (which is an analgesic natural) are produced by the body in situations of great stress and, during crying, they are eliminated along with tears.
They say that men are more direct, and that women like coaxing. This does not always apply to the personality of the people of these sexes, but when it comes to pleasure, it ends up being very similar: for the male wing it is much easier to reach an orgasm during sex. For this reason, the female orgasm ends being more studied by scientists, specialists and even by the philosophers of the bar!
