Pain during or after intercourse, called Painful Intercourse, occurs in nearly two out of three women at some time during their lives. Like other sexual disorders, it can have physical and/or emotional causes. The most common cause of pain during sex is inadequate vaginal lubrication occurring from a lack of arousal, medications or hormonal changes. Painful sex also can be a sign of illness, infection, cysts or tumors requiring medical treatment or surgery, another reason why you should discuss the problem with your health care professional.
Painful Intercourse may be caused by the inflammation or infection of the vagina, tumors, insufficient lubrication of the vagina, remnants of the hymen, vaginismus (voluntary or involuntary contraction of the lower vaginal muscles) infection, endometriosis, or other pathologic conditions (including those of the anus—such as hemorrhoids—or in the urinary tract). If you are experiencing pain during sex, your health care professional may recommend a variety of tests including but not limited to blood tests, urine tests and scans to check for possible causes. Painful Intercourse can be cured if treated in a right way.
Diagnosis of the underlying cause of Painful Intercourse may indicate the treatment for infection or inflammation, sexual counseling, and education on anatomy and sexual functioning, the use of lubricants, and, in some instances, surgical removal of tumors or treatment of endometriosis. The cooperation of both partners in treatment is usually desirable. If you’re having sexual problems, your health care professional will try to rule out medical causes first by conducting a thorough medical history and exam, including a pelvic exam and blood tests. If there is no physical or biological cause, you may be referred for psychological counseling. Ask for a referral to the Best Sexologist in Delhi.
