Painful Intercourse


Painful intercourse or dyspareunia (dis-puh-ROO-nee-uh) is defined as persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. It can occur for reasons that range from structural problems to psychological concerns. Many women have painful intercourse at some point in their lives. Treatments focus on the cause and can help eliminate or lessen this common problem.


Symptoms of dyspareunia include:

  • Pain only at sexual entry (penetration)
  • Pain with every penetration, including putting in a tampon
  • Deep pain during thrusting
  • Burning pain or aching pain
  • Throbbing pain, lasting hours after intercourse

It can be difficult to tell whether physical or emotional factors are what is causing your dyspareunia. Initial pain can lead to fear of recurring pain, making it difficult to relax, which can lead to more pain. You might start avoiding sexual intercourse if you associate it with the pain. Untreated, this condition can affect your sex life, your relationship with your partner, and your self-image.


Fortunately, there is a breakthrough treatment available for dyspareunia. The O-Shot (PRP Shot) has made pain during intercourse a thing of the past for countless women and there is a good chance it could help you too. PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. Because of its great success at healing and repairing wounds and soft tissues, it is now used for various conditions, including to help women with dyspareunia and to rejuvenate and enhance the vagina. The PRP shot is made from a patient’s own blood and is a very effective treatment. In addition, the O-Shot helps women enjoy enhanced sexual experiences and reach orgasm, even in those that had never achieved it prior to getting the O-Shot!
