Pain during intimate relations

Dyspareunia, or pain during intercourse can be debilitating. Not only does it affect sexual relations but, more often than not, creates a great deal of psychological distress and loss of confidence whose impact goes well beyond the bedroom. Fortunately, in most cases, dyspareunia can be easily remedied. The treatment required depends on the cause of the pain.

Whilst doctors often prescribe hormone replacement medications, particularly to treat vaginal dryness, these carry a number of side-effects and documented risks to general health. Because of this, many women choose to opt for non-pharmaceutical treatments. These non-drug treatments generally fall into two categories:
  • Vaginal lubricants or moisturisers – for women whose pain is caused by vaginal dryness. These are applied just prior to intimate relations;
  • Vaginal dilators – for women whose pain is due to vaginismus caused by muscular tension or in diagnosed cases of vaginal stenosis (narrowing), caused by problems such as cysts, post-infection changes or radiotherapy treatment. Vaginal dilators, come in sets of gradually increasing size, allowing for progressive dilation exercises, carried out at a pace that feels comfortable to you.
