My wife and I just became sexually active 2 weeks ago.She complains of pain without pleasure during sex. What could be the cause?

Many reasons: There many reasons for a woman just starting to be sexually active to have pain during sex. It takes a while for her body to accommodate the penis and she can be very sore and raw from the process even if it is very gentle.

I can not feel any pleasure during sex, what seems the be the problem?

Sex at 17: Your info indicates you're only 17 years old. Sex at that age is likely to be accompanied by all kinds of anxieties which can affect how you experience intercourse.

Did you start at 14 or 16? Either might have brought these worries. As you mature emotionally, it's possible your confidence will grow and your relationships may build trust (a BIG part)! Be optimistic - have fun. ...Read more
