Painful Intercourse

What Is Painful Intercourse?

A life lived without pleasure is no life at all! Unfortunately losing arousal and experiencing vaginal dryness is incredibly common. Both of these symptoms often occur due to a hormonal imbalance or some other underlying medical issue. At Helio Health & Wellness, we like to give our patients and friends every opportunity to live their best lives. That’s why we happily provide assistance to those struggling from painful intercourse issues. At our office, you can discover effective hormone therapy treatments and Pap smears to both identify and help manage your concerns.

What Are The Symptoms?

Pain during intercourse is often caused by a decline in estrogen levels. A severe decline of estrogen after menopause often results in a thinning of the vaginal wall, making intercourse feel uncomfortable and even painful at times. A lack of testosterone may also be a contributing factor. Though often associated with men, testosterone can be found in both genders and has a direct effect on the libido. A sudden dip in testosterone can be attributed to menopause in women and is often referred to as andropause in men.
