Pain During Sex (Overview)

For both men and women, pain can occur in the pelvic area during or soon after sexual intercourse. It can happen at any time during sex -- for example, at the time of penetration, erection, or ejaculation -- or after sexual activity. Eventually, ongoing pain may cause a person to lose interest in any sexual activity. The medical term for this is dyspareunia.

I was on Cerazette for three months to treat endometriosis. Now I am feeling pain during sex again after a week. What should I do?
