Usually, when you're aroused, everything feels fucking fantastic—especially when you know you're about to feel sweet release soon. But if you've ever felt any discomfort, aches, or even an actual sharp pain in your vagina shortly after being turned on, don't fret. It's common among women.

You know how men experience "blue balls?" Well, it's the same concept. When you're horny, blood flows to your vagina, and that can result in pelvic congestion. What does that mean? If you're horny and you don't orgasm, it can stay there for almost an hour.


Additionally, all the blood that's clogged up there stretches the walls of your vagina. The pain you feel when you're aroused is because you feel when your vagina's expanding. Dr. Nicole Prause, a sex researcher, notes, "It makes sense that the vagina provides feedback to the brain that it is engorging and stretching and, sometimes, experiences this process with some initial discomfort, especially in the form of an aching feeling."

Some women, however, also experience pain during and after an orgasm. Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh confirms, "Vaginal contractions are generally an involuntary muscular response to sexual stimulation, including sexual arousal, and are commonly most intense during sexual intercourse and culminating in orgasm."
