    Putting it in all the way seems to cause the pain.

    sarahogan responded:
    this happens to me as well. when a woman climaxes, often the tissues swell up completely inside causing pain when anything presses on them, this is how my doctor described it to me. I can't keep going after I climax because most of the time it causes intense pain.
    Karen Luster, MD responded:
    Pain with deep penetration can be from anatomical changes such as

    · Fibroids- depending on the position and or size some women can experience pain and discomfort.
    · Retroflexed uterus- which is a normal position of the uterus in some women where it is lying more towards the back. Some women feel pain or discomfort with deep penetration.
    · Pelvic congestion syndrome- a condition like having "varicose veins" in the pelvis. The veins are swollen and dilated. Ladies may experience a dull ache or heaviness just before their periods.
    · Endometriosis is tissue from the lining of the uterus that grows out of place which is anywhere outside the lining of the uterus. If is deposits in any other area in the pelvis ligaments, surrounding tissue pain can be elicited on penetration.

    Any of these conditions can cause pain or discomfort during sex and even outside of sex. Not all women who have these conditions experience discomfort.

    Unfortunately, you didn't state your age. There are some conditions that are more common in women who are premenopausal. Postmenopausal women may be at less risk for some of these conditions such as endometriosis.
