    I have pain during sex due to the length of my boyfriend's penis. I suspect he's hitting my cervix, but I read that it should move out of the way during arousal.

    All advice I've read says that pain during intercourse means you're not relaxed enough, lubricated enough, or aroused enough. This definitely was not the case, we went slow, and (after a few seconds adjustment) the only place it hurt was far in back, at the end of the vagina. I would've thought this was common among couples with unusually long penises or shallow vaginas, but the only explanation I've found for isolated deep pain are ovarian cysts or other major infections. Information please? READ MORE

    There are a lot of other reasons, but the first place you need to go, is your doctor for a physical exam to determine if there is a physical basis for the pain. Don't be worried about speaking frankly with the doctor, they have dealt with this before. They are interested in keeping you healthy in all parts of your life.


    You probably have read a lot of literature already, but here are two more.


    The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists put together a long pamphlet about the different causes and areas of pain, called Dyspareunia, experienced by many women.


    The Mayo Clinic also did an article about Painful Intercourse. I doubt it is due solely to the length of your partner but it may be aggravating a problem. I hope you try for the exam and that the doctor can help.
