Diagnosis and Treatment for Dyspareunia!

MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Diagnosis and Treatment for Dyspareunia!

Pain during or after sexual intercourse is known as dyspareunia. Although this problem can affect men, it is more common in women. Women with dyspareunia may have pain in the vagina, clitoris or labia. There are numerous causes of dyspareunia, many of which are treatable. 

Common causes include the following:

  1. Vaginal dryness
  2. Atrophic vaginitis, a common condition causing thinning of the vaginal lining in postmenopausal women
  3. Side effects of drugs such as antihistamines and tamoxifen (Nolvadex and other brands)
  4. An allergic reaction to clothing, spermicides or douches
  5. Endometriosis, an often painful condition in which tissue from the uterine lining migrates and grows abnormally inside the pelvis
  6. Inflammation of the area surrounding the vaginal opening, called vulvar vestibulitis
  7. Skin diseases, such as lichen planus and lichen sclerosus, affecting the vaginal area
  8. Urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast infections, or sexually transmitted diseases
  9. Psychological trauma, often stemming from a past history of sexual abuse or trauma.

Symptoms of Dyspareunia:
Women with dyspareunia may feel superficial pain at the entrance of the vagina or deeper pain during penetration or thrusting of the penis. Some women also may experience severe tightening of the vaginal muscles during penetration, a condition called vaginismus.

Diagnosis:
Your health practitioner will check for the following things

  1. If there was ever a time you had painless intercourse or if you have always had dyspareunia
  2. If you have enough natural lubrication and if your symptoms improve when you use commercially available lubricants
  3. About your sexual history (to help assess your risk for sexually transmitted infections)
  4. If you have ever been sexually abused or had a traumatic injury involving your genitals.

Treatment:

  1. Lubrication with an over-the-counter lubricant such as K-Y jelly.
  2. Antifungal medication(if you have any kind of fungal infection)
  3. Sitz baths for removing the inflammation
  4. For skin diseases affecting the vaginal area, lichen sclerosus and lichen planus often improve with steroid creams.
  5. Therapies include topical estrogen cream, low-dose pain medications, and physical therapy with biofeedback to lower the muscle tension in the pelvic floor
  6. Surgeries can also be prescribed for abnormal growths

For dyspareunia that has no apparent physical cause or has lasted for months or years, you may need psychological counseling to address stress or anxiety regarding sexual intercourse.

Untold Harmful Effects of The Kegel Exercise

MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Untold Harmful Effects of The Kegel Exercise

What is Kegel?

Kegel is a type of an exercise that helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles which support the bladder, the uterus, rectum and small intestine. This exercise can be performed at just about any time of the day, when you are getting bored at work or in bed before sleeping.

this exercise helps cure minor disorders such as stress incontinence (leakage of urine on doing any activity, as simple as sneezing), faecal incontinence (leaking stool) or urinary incontinence.

How to do this exercise?

To understand which muscles are involved in this, firstly you need to flex your muscles to stop urination in midstream. If you do it successfully, you have found your pelvic floor muscles. This is for women. As for men, the muscle that stops you or restricts you from passing gas is the muscle involved in this exercise. The Kegel exercise involves holding this muscle for several seconds and releasing it.

The Harmful Effects of Kegel:

While Kegel can have several benefits, but overdoing anything can cause negative side effects-

  1. Kegel exercises are known to be particularly beneficial for women. But in men, this exercise is shown to cause premature ejaculation. This is because the contraction of the prostate leads to the triggering of the sympathetic system that signals ejaculation.

  2. Using the right muscles for it is essential. If you do not know how to engage the right muscles, it is not recommended to carry on with it. Ask for help if you are unable to do it. Also, it is essential to not involve the abdomen muscles. It can result in more harm than good.

  3. The tightening of the pelvic floor muscles is a gradual process and doing the exercise more often than recommended does not expedite the process. If you do the exercise too often, then chances are you may strain the muscles and it can become tired and not able to do its function properly.

Ayurveda and Kegel:

  1. Ayurvedic drugs such as Ashwagandha (Withania somniferum) are medicines that should be used to treat complications caused due to Kegel exercises. It is a very powerful drug and has aphrodisiac properties as well. If. kegel. performed with the consumption of ayurvedic medicines(like Ashwagandharistha) will be safe and more beneficial.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
