Sex Q&A: Why Does It Hurt When I'm on Top?

Q.

The Nest Q&A

Why does it hurt sometimes when I’m on top?

A.

Pain during intercourse is common and can easily occur during sexual positions that allow for deep thrusting. Generally, the woman-on-top position is a solid choice; it allows you a little more control (which can help you achieve an orgasm). But if the sex is vigorous, it’s possible to tear the tissues that support the uterus. Go without sex for a couple of weeks—if the pain persists, see your gyno and describe your situation. You might also want to try having sex in the side-by-side position, so you can hold your guy’s penis and control how far he goes in.
