Superficial Dyspareunia is a term that refers to a medical condition that manifests during or following sexual intercourse and is not caused by a lack of lubrication or by vaginismus, the medical term for the muscular vaginal contractions. While this condition is generally associated with women, as up to 1 in 5 women are reported to experience superficial dyspareunia at one point in their lives, it can also manifest in the case of men. There are several factors that can be conducive to the appearance of dyspareunia, including vaginal septa, hypoplasia of the introitus, ovarian cysts, thickened hymenal tissue, infections, tumors, vulvar vestibulitis. The Renew Skin & Health Clinic team realizes how important and sensitive this issue is for those who present it and is ready to provide effective superficial dyspareunia treatment.
Before developing a comprehensive treatment regime, it is very important to accurately diagnose dyspareunia in order to select the proper course of action. If you choose to undergo the superficial dyspareunia treatment at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we will make sure you will undergo a detailed medical examination prior to any final decision being taken. During this phase of the process, the causes of the genital pain will be identified, explained to you and, finally, decisions regarding the treatment will be made. It is generally recommended that the patient joins the medical consultation with his/her relevant other since both of their cooperation will probably be necessary for an effective treatment. Depending on the particular cause of dyspareunia, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic medical experts will recommend either hormonal treatment in order improve the endometriosis, local injections of corticosteroids or local anesthetics, hormone replacement therapy or different forms of surgical treatment. If the symptoms are not very severe, the patient can simply avoid or reduce the level of discomfort, either by utilizing vaginal lubricants, exercising vaginal dilatation and modifying sexual behavior in order to enhance natural lubrication, but these methods are not always very effective.
The superficial dyspareunia treatments vary according to each individual’s condition, ranging from antibiotics for different infections, antifungal creams for yeast infections, analgesics, estrogen creams or pills for the lubrication of the vagina, especially in post-menopausal periods, to surgery for the correction of congenital malformations or for the removal of cysts or large fibroids.
