Vaginal wetness issues are common among post-menopausal women as well as women who are breastfeeding, due to low levels of estrogen which can cause problems with vaginal dryness throughout the day and not just during sex. Certain medications can also make it more difficult to produce sufficient vaginal lubrication for sex.
Sometimes medications – such as low-dose estrogen birth control pills – are thought to contribute to difficulties with vaginal lubrication. Other times, certain medical conditions may play a role. Depending on the situation, a healthcare provider may recommend the use of a vaginal moisturizer to help maintain a sense of vaginal wetness and comfort.
Some women experience vaginal dryness after taking low dose birth control pills. Also, it’s common for women to feel more dry if they start having sex shortly after a warm shower or bath, if they’re taking allergy medications such as antihistamines, or while they are breastfeeding.
There are many different causes for pain during sex. Sometimes, women and their partners spend very little time in foreplay, not leaving the vagina enough time to lubricate naturally, which can be painful. If a woman has a male partner who has a large penis, or is she has a small vagina, the genital fit can be painful too.
Some women who lubricate quite a lot enjoy it or look to it as a sign of their sexual excitement. Other women find that it may be enjoyable up to a point but that too much lubrication can interfere with vaginal sensation or their ability to “feel” their partner during intercourse.
Sometimes men wake up in the middle of the night and notice that they are feeling aroused, that their penis is erect or that they have just ejaculated. Other times, men don’t notice anything while they are sleep. They simply wake up the next morning and realize, from their underwear or sheets, that they ejaculated some time during the night.
A woman may be more likely to experience vaginal dryness if she is stressed, taking antihistamines or if she has just taken a warm shower or bath. Women who are breastfeeding also tend to be more prone to vaginal dryness.
Although sperm are quite small, they typically do not make it through most types of clothing unless, of course, both partners were wearing mesh clothing or other clothing with large holes in it, or if they pushed their underwear to the side or were wearing thong underwear and thus somehow had direct genital contact.
My girlfriend says that she can’t feel anything when I’m in her. I never had this problem with women before, and am pretty sure it’s not a size issue as I’m at least average size. What are the reasons why a woman wouldn’t feel anything during sex?
For years I was with a man who had a very large penis. We broke up and now I have met a man who does not have as big of a penis. Although we haven’t had sex yet I feel like that when we do my vaginal size will be much looser to him. Is that true? Will my vagina be stretched out from my ex?
My boyfriend and I are in our twenties and have been dating for a few years. On two occasions recently I noticed that he got an erection when he saw an attractive woman. I got mad and upset. Is it normal for me to feel this way? And can’t he control his erections?
