Pain During Sexual Intercourse (Dyspareunia)
One after-effect of atrophic vaginitis is dyspareunia – pain during sexual intercourse. An atrophic vagina is thin, fragile, lacks elasticity and above all is dry and unlubricated. This causes pain during sexual intercourse with a series of negative consequences regarding the couple’s relationship which lead to a lack of sexual desire and uneasy feelings during intimate moments with your partner.
Dyspareunia can also be caused by pain in the perineal region caused by scarring of the episiotomy or after a laceration from a spontaneous delivery.
Understanding the cause of the pain and using the latest generation laser treatment on the tissue is now the most effective way of resolving this symptom.
