Most women, at some point in their lives, will experience painful sexual intercourse, which is also known as dyspareunia. It is believed that inexperienced females are more likely to suffer pain during sex, whilst women who have just experienced childbirth may also suffer pain following intercourse. While females in the fifties are less likely to experience painful sex, they could suffer discomfort due to hormone problems.
There are various reasons why some people might suffer with pain and discomfort during sex, as they may have a small vagina, suffer from unusual dryness caused by a hormonal imbalance or they could have vaginal atrophy due to menopause or ageing.
Women may also complain of different pains during intercourse, as some may endure discomfort in the vaginal opening area, while others may experience a deep pain within the vaginal walls or in the vulva. Dyspareunia can also affect the bladder, lower back, uterus or pelvic area, and many women often report a burning sensation or spotting.
Dyspareunia can have a significant impact on a person’s relationship with their partner, as well as denting their sexual confidence and self-esteem. A couple may struggle with guilt, embarrassment or frustration, which can result in a lack of physical and emotional intimacy. It is therefore essential to find a way to alleviate painful sex once and for all.
Fortunately, there can be numerous solutions for dyspareunia. If you experience pain during painful intercourse, you should book an appointment with your doctor to discuss the problem and identify a solution.
You can also consider a cosmetic surgical procedure, which can relax your vaginal diameter to eliminate pain during sex. Dr David Ghozland specialises in vaginal reconstructive services, including Los Angeles Labiaplasty or Vaginal Loosening, which can potentially decrease the pain caused by intercourse.
Pain during sex can sometimes be due to a small vaginal opening, and Vaginal Loosening can therefore enlarge the size of the opening with a precise laser, and will be performed under local anaesthesia.
Another reconstructive surgery that can alleviate painful sex is a Labiaplasty, which is a minimally invasive surgery that removes excess or uneven labia tissue from the labia minora (vaginal lips), which can cause discomfort during intercourse or exercise. The procedure can therefore improve a woman’s sex life whilst boosting their self-esteem. By opting for a surgery, you could potentially enjoy a more intimate relationship with your partner within a matter of weeks, in most cases, whilst boosting your sexual confidence.
It is important to remember that most people, at some point in their lives, will suffer from a sex issue, which could be problems such as a lack of libido, erectile dysfunction or lubrication problems. Many people often blame themselves when suffering from a problem in the bedroom, when there is a simple explanation.
There is a solution for a dyspareunia, so speak to an experienced professional to identify a safe and effective option to experience a more enjoyable sex life.
