Expert Q & A Answers About sex problems

We want to have sex for the first time, but it hurts! What’s the problem?

My boyfriend and I are both virgins...but we tried to have sex for the first time a couple nights ago. When he started to enter me, I felt a sharp pain. He could put the full length of his fingers in me comfortably, but his penis caused me pain. So we ended up not doing anything. Do you have any advice?

Why is sex painful after I orgasm?

After I orgasm, if we continue to have sex, I have pain. Why is that?

As my wife goes through menopause, we’re trying to keep a good sex life. What can we do?

I am a 44-year-old male, and my wife and I have enjoyed a very good and regular sex life for about 14 years. However, I’ve had intermittent erectile dysfunction for the past four months...and I think it’s because my 50-year-old wife is going through menopause. It seems like sex is a chore for her and this puts me off. Then I get anxiety and I can’t keep an erection. What should I do? I don’t want to stop having sex with my wife as we get older.
