Painful sex, or dyspareunia occurs for many reasons. Lack of lubrication and tight muscles are two problems that can develop due to physical and emotional issues.
When estrogen levels decline at menopause, the vagina may become dry, less elastic, and more fragile, which leads to painful intercourse. This condition, called vaginal atrophy, affects as many as half of all postmenopausal women. Other times, it may be that more time or stimulation is needed for the body to respond and lubricate. Schedule an appointment with us and we’ll figure things out. You’ll receive the appropriate treatment for any underlying health conditions. If your physical health is fine, our physicians will find the solution that improves your sex life, from behavior modification to medical options.
