What is Sex Pain?
Sex pain is defined as any type of discomfort that you experience on a regular basis during intercourse. The clinical term for this type of pain is “dyspareunia,” and it affects almost 75% of adult women. Many women feel uneasy about discussing sex pain, as they feel that it may indicate that their genitals or vaginal area have some type of abnormality. At National Pain Institute, we work with women who experience sex pain and provide discreet and personalized care services to help them overcome the condition.
What Are the Symptoms of Sex Pain?
The most common types of sex pain are:
- Persistent pain in the reproductive organs.
- Feeling as if the skin is being ripped or torn during intercourse.
- Burning sensations.
- Aches in the genital and vaginal region.
- Pain in the tailbone.
- Rectal pain.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Sex Pain?

What Should I Expect After Treatment for Sex Pain?
After our pain management physician performs the recommended procedure, you may have an immediate reduction in sex pain symptoms or the treatment may take a few days. You do not have to limit your activities, and you can have intercourse after 24 hours. If the pain returns, please contact us to schedule an appointment for an additional treatment. We do recommend that you discuss your sex pain with your gynecologist so as to determine the underlying condition that is causing the discomfort.
