Timi and Adaku have been married for two months. They are both in love with each other and looking forward to a happy ever after.

The duo has been saving sex for marriage and just like every couple, they are expecting to have a fulfilling sex life.

This expectation however, does not appear to be realizable – Timi and his wife have not been able to consummate their marriage.

As much as they desired each other, were attracted to each other and wanted so much to have sexual intercourse, they couldn’t.

Adaku found every attempt of penetration so unbearably painful. Even though Timi had done everything right and was as patient and gentle as he could be, yet it felt like he was “hitting a wall”.

The couple spoke with their doctor friend and also consulted some of their married friends. The advice they offered were followed but with no result. Timi and his wife are both frustrated. They definitely need help.

Here are important things every couple should know about sex:

  • Sexual intercourse is not meant to be painful. If you are having pain during sex, you should stop. Sex is meant to be pleasurable and pain indicates that something is wrong
  • Painful sexual intercourse can be caused either by emotional or biological factors. There are however times when the problem does not have an identifiable cause
  • Physical causes of the condition in women include: infections, too little vaginal lubrication, problems with the cervix or uterus, sex too soon after childbirth or surgery and ectopic pregnancy
  • Certain infections or inflammation affecting the penis can also cause the condition

If you are experiencing pain during sexual intercourse, it isn’t something to be ignored. You should see your doctor as soon as possible.
