Painful intercourse is a very common complaint of women and can be caused by many factors. First, as women age, estrogen levels slowly decline.The decline of estrogen is significantly expedited for women who have experienced menopause, a hysterectomy, or chemotherapy. A lack of estrogen results in thin, dry, and even inflamed vaginal walls, which leads to vaginal discomfort and decreased lubrication.
Women who had an episiotomy (a surgical incision in the perineum made to enlarge the vaginal opening prior to delivery) may also experience painful intercourse due to the scar tissue that forms when the episiotomy heals. In some cases, an episiotomy may not heal properly, which can significantly contribute to painful intercourse. Do you want to get back your more confident, sensual self? Call us today!
