It helps her to become lubricated and for something called tilting. Biologically our bodies prepare to be entered by our uterus slightly tiling to make more space. The lack of space due to a lack of foreplay could be the cause of the pain or discomfort.

The other issues could be a lack of lubrication and even though you might engage in foreplay, rougher sex or longer lasting sex might allow for frication to occur and for you to experience pain.

If this does solve the problem, make sure you consult with a health care professional.
