Intercourse can be painful for a variety of reasons, ranging from structural issues to psychological concerns. Many women have painful intercourse at some point in their lives.

Dyspareunia (dis-puh-ROO-nee-uh) is a medical term for painful intercourse. It is characterised as persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during, or after intercourse.


In postmenopausal women, dyspareunia, or painful intercourse, is a common problem. It can affect both men and women, but the latter is more likely to be affected.


Dyspareunia in postmenopausal women usually occurs because of vaginal dryness due to fluctuating hormones.



1. What are the symptoms of dyspareunia?


Dyspareunia pain can vary. Pain may occur:


• In the vagina, urethra, or bladder
• During penetration
• During or after intercourse
• Deep in the pelvis during intercourse
• After pain-free intercourse
• Only with specific partners or circumstances
• Particularly with tampon use
• Along with burning, itching, or aching
• With a feeling of stabbing pain, similar to menstrual cramps


However, it is effectively treated with a cream or drug which releases small doses of oestrogen directly into the vagina.


2. Dyspareunia home remedies include:


Simple steps can be taken at home if you have dyspareunia.


These steps are best taken before you have sex.


You can do the following:


• Fully empty your bladder.
• Take a warm bath.
• Take an analgesic pain reliever (painkiller).
• Use a water-based lubricant
• An ice pack should be applied to the vulva.
• Talk to your partner about how you're feeling and also communicate your pain to your partner.
• Modifications to your typical sexual routine, such as changing positions, can also help to alleviate dyspareunia symptoms.
• Longer foreplay gives more time for stimulation and encourages natural vaginal lubrication


3. What’s the outlook for dyspareunia?


You and your spouse may need to find alternative methods to be intimate until vaginal penetration becomes less painful. Alternatives to intercourse like as sensual massage, kissing, and mutual masturbation may be more comfortable, fulfilling, and enjoyable than your regular routine.
