Dyspareunia can be described as painful sex/penetration. It may occur at the initiation phase, or after some time of pain free penetration. Penetration includes not only sex, but also use of a tampon, insertion of the finger, speculum, or other. The cause may be due to several factors, including:

  • Muscle spasm of the pelvic floor either at the surface layer, or deep layer
  • Position of a prolapse, if present (even if it is a small prolapse)
  • Endometriosis if present
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease or irrital bowel syndrome
  • Skin sensitivity/ vulvodynia

How Angela Simpson Physiotherapy can help you:

  • Identify the most likely cause of the problem
  • Teach the client how to relax/ downtrain the pelvic floor muscles, if that is the cause of the problem
  • Educate the client on positions that may be less painful for them
  • Teach the client how to desensitize the area that causes the pain
