Pelvic Pain/Sexual Dysfunction

 

Dyspareunia

Persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. These symptoms can occur because of pelvic floor muscular spasms, structural problems or psychological problems.

Vaginismus

Involuntary spasms of the muscles of the vaginal wall (vaginismus) can make attempts at penetration very painful.

Vulvodynia

Chronic pain in the area around the opening of your vagina (vulva) for which there is no identifiable cause. The pain, burning or irritation associated with vulvodynia may make you so uncomfortable that sitting for long periods or having sex becomes unthinkable.

Vulvar Vestibuliits

Severe pain on vestibular touch or vaginal entry; erythema in vestibule and bartholin gland openings.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the female reproductive organs. It usually occurs when sexually transmitted bacteria spread from your vagina to your uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries. Symptoms of PID include lower abdominal pain, fever, painful intercourse, painful urination, foul smelling vaginal discharge, irregular menstrual bleeding, and pain in the right upper abdomen.

Chronic Pelvic Pain

Persistence of unexplained pain in the lower abdominal and pelvic region without evidence of active disease, this can last for up to six months or longer.
