Sex Can Be Great Again
Intercourse Doesn't Need to be Painful
Pain experienced during sexual activity, also referred to as dyspareunia, can not only affect a couple's relationship, but can also have negative emotional effects. Dyspareunia can be caused by not waiting long enough after childbirth, menopause, emotional distress regarding sexual activity, and more. Where in some instances painful intercourse can be resolved through either waiting (in the case of childbirth) or using a lubricant, there are cases in which a doctor's help may be needed.
Fortunately, you don't have to abstain from sexual activity or deal with dyspareunia. The Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health provides several treatments that can not only reduce discomfort during sex, but can also make it more pleasurable.
