His main interest is treating skin conditions in male and female genital area including warts treatment and various STIs, and specializes in vulvar painful conditions (vulvodynias and dyspareunia).

Dyspareunia is a genital condition that affects both men and women but is more common in the latter’s case, and refers to pain during or after intercourse. Superficial dyspareunia refers to the pain felt in the vagina, clitoris or labia that manifests only at the moment of penetration and stops when the action ceases. The symptoms of dyspareunia consisting in burning or cramping sensations vary in each individual in terms of location and intensity, but all lead to loss of interest in sexual activities.

Superficial dyspareunia has various causes affecting one in five women, including provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) which consists in an impairment element in the nervous system that confuses mild stimuli with significant pain, which is probably a form of vulvar chronic pain syndrome; anthropic vaginitis, vulvar disorder, congenital malformations, genital herpes simplex, postsurgical vaginal narrowing, lack of estrogen which causes dryness or recurring tearing of the posterior fourchette.
The superficial dyspareunia diagnosis is set based on the symptoms you’re experiencing and a pelvic examination consisting in the check-up of the vulvar skin and the outer genitalia, with the possibility to include a PVD test which is performed using a cotton swab. During the consultation, our Consultant specialist, Dr. Amgad R Habib may also ask you a few questions to determine the exact cause of the dyspareunia condition while also assessing your current health condition and both medical and sexual history.

Superficial dyspareunia treatments are also based on the factor that causes this condition and when prescribed, each treatment must be customized to best suit your individual system as well. Such treatments may include antifungal cream for yeast infections, antibiotics, analgesics, estrogen creams or pills for the lubrication of the vagina, especially in post-menopausal period and surgery for the removal of cysts, large fibroids or for the correction of congenital malformations.
