Dyspareunia Q & A
Dyspareunia has far-reaching effects on both the physical and emotional aspects of a woman’s life. Apart from the physical discomfort during intercourse, it may affect emotional intimacy in the patient’s relationship. With this in mind, it’s best to have this condition duly checked out and treated before it progresses and becomes chronic.
Apart from vaginal lubrication, other factors are known to cause discomfort during sexual intercourse include;
Injury- If you’ve had any recent accidents, pelvic surgeries, and any other form of accidents, then these might be the cause of the pain.
Vaginismus- the involuntary muscle spasms of the vaginal tract, which fears of getting hurt can cause.
Vaginal infections- for example, yeast infections are known to cause pain during sexual intercourse.
Uterine complications- such as fibroids which are known to cause intense pain
Endometriosis- a condition where the tissue found inside the uterus begins growing outside the uterus.
Ovarian complications - such as cysts
