Hi Simone! When I first became cured I, too, experienced pain during penetrative sex for quite some time. And I think it came from the disconnect between my head and body. My muscles were under my control but the fear and anticipation of pain made me tense up and caused me… pain!! So frustrating! I would definitely get checked out, to rule out anything and make sure you’re healthy! But it also could just be anxiety. Maybe it’s not enough lube, or the wrong lube, or no lube? Or maybe you may even want to dilate before sex to help prepare your body.
