#Dyspareunia

Friends today I am discussing about a problem facing by females known as Painful intercourse (dyspareunia). Painful intercourse can occur for reasons that range from structural problems to psychological concerns. Many women have painful intercourse at some point in their lives. The medical term for painful intercourse is dyspareunia (dis-puh-ROO-nee-uh), defined as persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. Talk to your doctor if you're having painful intercourse. Treatments focus on the cause, and can help eliminate or lessen this common problem. Symptoms If you have painful intercourse, you might feel: Pain only at sexual entry (penetration) Pain with every penetration, including putting in a tampon Deep pain during thrusting Burning pain or aching pain Throbbing pain, lasting hours after intercourse When to see a doctor If you have recurrent pain during sex, talk to your doctor. Treating the problem can help your sex life, your emotional intimacy and your self-image. Causes Physical causes of painful intercourse differ, depending on whether the pain occurs at entry or with deep thrusting. Emotional factors might be associated with many types of painful intercourse. Entry pain Pain during penetration might be associated with a range of factors, including: Not enough lubrication. This is often the result of not enough foreplay. A drop in estrogen levels after menopause or childbirth or during breast-feeding also can be a cause. Certain medications are known to affect sexual desire or arousal, which can decrease lubrication and make sex painful. These include antidepressants, high blood pressure medications, sedatives, antihistamines and certain birth control pills. Injury, trauma or irritation. This includes injury or irritation from an accident, pelvic surgery, female circumcision or a cut made during childbirth to enlarge the birth canal (episiotomy). Inflammation, infection or skin disorder. An infection in your genital area or urinary tract can cause painful intercourse. Eczema or other skin problems in your genital area also can be the problem. Vaginismus. These involuntary spasms of the muscles of the vaginal wall can make penetration painful. Congenital abnormality. A problem present at birth, such as the absence of a fully formed vagina (vaginal agenesis) or development of a membrane that blocks the vaginal opening (imperforate hymen), could cause dyspareunia. Deep pain Deep pain usually occurs with deep penetration. It might be worse in certain positions. Causes include: Certain illnesses and conditions. The list includes endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine prolapse, retroverted uterus, uterine fibroids, cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and ovarian cysts. Surgeries or medical treatments. Scarring from pelvic surgery, including hysterectomy, can cause painful intercourse. Medical treatments for cancer, such as radiation and chemotherapy, can cause changes that make sex painful. Emotional factors Emotions are deeply intertwined with sexual activity, so they might play a role in sexual pain. Emotional factors include: Psychological issues. Anxiety, depression, concerns about your physical appearance, fear of intimacy or relationship problems can contribute to a low level of arousal and a resulting discomfort or pain. Stress. Your pelvic floor muscles tend to tighten in response to stress in your life. This can contribute to pain during intercourse. History of sexual abuse. Not every woman with dyspareunia has a history of sexual abuse, but if you have been abused, it can play a role. It can be difficult to tell whether emotional factors are associated with dyspareunia. Initial pain can lead to fear of recurring pain, making it difficult to relax, which can lead to more pain. You might start avoiding sexual intercourse if you associate it with the pain. Here are a few effective homeopathic treatments that can help get rid of pain during intercourse: Sepia and lycopodium: It is the top homeopathic medicine for vaginal dryness. Sepia and lycopodium are evaluated as the best cures. Sepia is suggested where vaginal dryness occurs along with itching. Pain from vaginal dryness during intercourse also calls for the use of sepia. Bellis perennis: This medicine helps cure the wounded sensation in the vagina, if intercourse is obstructed due to pain and spasms. Cactus grandiflora: This is used when the vagina shuts close during the act of intercourse. Intercourse might be simpler just before periods. Coffea: This may be used when, if the vulva and vagina are oversensitive and you feel heat as well as itchiness. Cuprum: This medicine is prescribed for cramping in the vagina and the legs, during intercourse. Ferrum: When your vagina feels dry and aches, this medicine may be prescribed. Gelsemium: This medicine is used to treat any tension preceding intercourse. These symptoms usually show an inclination towards vaginismus. Lycopodium: Dry, smoldering vaginal pain during and after intercourse may be treated with this medicine. The patient may have varicose veins in the vulva. Platina: It is consumed during solid sexual desire. It becomes hard to have sex as the vulva is to a great degree oversensitive. Intercourse is difficult and causes wounded sensation. Rhus tox: Soreness during and after intercourse, regularly joined by physical fretfulness may be treated with this medicine. Staphisagria: It is a good solution for pain after loss of virginity or in occurrences of assault or rape. Thuja: This is ideally taken when the vagina is oversensitive, making intercourse painful and troublesome. Pains include smoldering, soreness and a feeling of being wounded. It may be useful where there is a medical history of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) as well. Argentum nitricum and sepia: These are the best homeopathic medications for vaginal dryness causing bleeding after intercourse. There are numerous homeopathic solutions for vaginal dryness catering to bleeding during intercourse. The most well known among these are argentum nitricum and sepia. Argentum nitricum is the most reasonable among homeopathic pharmaceuticals for vaginal dryness in situations where sex is painful and bleeding takes after.

Honeymoon cystitis is a painful condition and they usually suffer from pain during intercourse also. Staphysagria has won many laurels in this affection. I've treated a newly married lady who complained of such pain. Staphysagria cured very fast. But I followed it with causticum because it was a constitutional remedy for her.

THE SAME REMEDY IS USEFUL TOO IN PAINFUL INTERCOURSE,DUE TO PREVIOUS EPISIOTOMY WOUND. SUCCESSFULLY TREAT 2CASES IN PAST IN MATERNITY HOMES.
