Pain on Intercourse

Sexual pain disorders or genital-pelvic pain disorders are defined as the presence of persistent or recurrent pain during sexual activities, whether those involved during vaginal penetration or simply those related to tactile stimulation of the vulva and the vestibule.

The report of the Consensus on Female Sexual Dysfunction included in the year 2000 within the group of disorders to Non-Coital Sexual Pain Disorder, as the name implies, the produced before any type of sexual stimulation without involving penetration. Women with this condition experience localized pain in the genital area before, during or after intercourse; this manages to affect their mental and physical health, modifying interpersonal relationships, work performance, etc.

They can be classified according to the antecedent of appearance, in primary if they manifest with the first sexual intercourse, or secondary if the symptomatology is experienced for the first time after previous sex without pain. An additional classification involves the frequency of occurrence of the disorder in complete, if they occur with each sexual encounter or situational if only occur in some occasions or with some couples but not in all opportunities.
It is common to find that women tolerate sexual pain subject to the thought of sex as a marital obligation, ignoring that the emotional burden acquired against this disorder leads to effects such as decreased sexual activity and distancing and incomprehension of a partner.

On the other hand, a study conducted in Sweden reported that only 28% of women with a history of prolonged and severe sexual pain consulted the doctor for this symptomatology, and the same situation occurs in varying degrees in all countries.

At Harley Street Hospital, we have the best doctors who are trained to diagnose and properly treat these conditions. Book a consultation to get a specialist´s opinion.
