Dyspareunia Treatment from miVIP

Obtain Fast Relief from Painful Symptoms

While many women suffer from dyspareunia symptoms, very few know what it is called, or that there is help available to improve your sex life. Dyspareunia is defined as any pain during sexual intercourse, and the surgeons here at miVIP are highly qualified to help you determine where the pain is coming from, and decide the best course of action to treat it.

The medical definition of dyspareunia is the chronic or recurring genital pain that happens before, during or after intercourse. Our experienced gynecologists can help you pinpoint whether or not you actually have dyspareunia symptoms.

Diagnosing Dyspareunia

When diagnosing this condition, your doctor may ask you questions and perform certain tests. You can expect to:

  • Answer questions about your sexual and medical history
  • Undergo a physical exam
  • Provide samples for laboratory tests
  • Undergo a possible pelvic ultrasound to determine underlying conditions

Many women are embarrassed of their condition and fail to seek treatment that can improve their lives. Be direct and honest with your doctor about your symptoms to ensure that you are getting the treatment you need.

Causes of Dyspareunia

Pain during intercourse may be caused by a variety of things:

  • Irritation
  • Trauma
  • Sexual abuse
  • Stress
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Vaginismus
  • Surgical scarring
  • Insufficient natural lubrication

Regardless of the cause, our women’s health care specialists can treat your condition and ensure that you are enjoying every aspect of your life.

Dyspareunia Symptoms

Women with dyspareunia suffer from pain during intercourse ranging from a dull ache to intense pain when the partner is thrusting. Pain may also be present during any type of penetration, including tampon usage.

Treatment Options for Dyspareunia

Treatment for dyspareunia symptoms is often aimed at the underlying condition causing the pain. For example, a laparoscopic endometriosis resection may be used to treat endometriosis that is causing pain during intercourse. During laparoscopic surgery, your surgeon makes a small incision below your navel and inserts a lighted viewing tool to remove the misplaced endometrial tissue.

A perineoplasty procedure may also be necessary to treat dyspareunia caused by trauma to the perineum.

Dyspareunia may also be treated with non-surgical treatments including:

  • Topical anesthetics
  • Antiviral medications
  • Antidepressants
  • Individual, couples or behavioral therapy

Treating dyspareunia is often a matter of determining what the underlying problem is, and our surgeons won’t rest until we have the answers you need.
