Sex and Even Just Arousal Is Painful with Endometriosis

Sex with Endometriosis Can Be Painful all the Time

Sex with Endometriosis Can Be Painful all the Time
If having pelvic pain and insanely miserable periods wasn’t enough, women with endometriosis often experience extreme pain during intercourse, or even while masturbating. This is due to the endometrial tissue that exists externally, which can stick to organs and increase flexibility.
Even your orgasms can be painful when you have endometriosis, according to Tamer Seckin, MD, founder and medical director of the Endometriosis Foundation of America:
In early cases, intercourse just before your period is painful.
