Hi, My husband and I did have a healthy sex life, but since I got pregnant most of the time we try to make love it hurts me really bad. I don’t know if that’s normal and I don’t feel comfortable talking to my OB/GYN about it.
No, pain is not normal, and it’s important that you talk to a health care professional about it. There’s simply no other way to figure out what the problem is. Pain during intercourse is rarely serious, but could possibly be caused by something potentially dangerous to the health of you or your baby, such as an infection. So don’t let embarrassment to keep you from getting the help you need. Your doctor is there to help you, not judge you, and knows that you didn’t get pregnant by magic. It’s also really important to feel like you can talk openly to your OB/GYN about your health issues, and if you feel like you can’t talk to yours for whatever reason, you might want to consider switching doctors to someone you’re more comfortable talking to.
