Reduce the pain of sexual intercourse with treatments that improve lubrication plus other helpful therapies.
Treatments to Improve Vaginal Lubrication
If sexual intercourse is painful for you, we offer a number of treatments that can help. This includes treatments that improve lubrication as well as a number of other therapies that help with dyspareunia.
Your doctor will determine the best treatment plan after an initial consultation, including changing medications you are currently on. This is because some medications are known to affect lubrication of the vagina which results in painful sex. You might also have an infection or another medical condition which is affecting lubrication levels and causing you pain. In this situation, your doctor will treat the condition directly.
Other treatments for dyspareunia involve applying estrogen directly on the vagina to increase levels of lubrication. This treatment is often suitable for women past the menopause. Certain medications can also help, as can other types of therapy. This includes vaginal relaxation exercises and other desensitisation therapies. Emotional and cognitive therapies can also help if you have negative thoughts or feelings towards sex. This includes counselling.
The benefits of our treatments include:
- Identifying the cause of the problem so the correct treatment can be applied
- Increasing levels of lubrication in your vagina
- Making sex pain free
- Improving your relationship with your partner
