Research shows that almost three out of four women experience pain while having sex at some point in their lives. If you’re one of these women, it helps to know that you are not alone and that there are plenty of treatment options out there that can help improve your sex life.
For the women of Dallas, Dr. Brady is pleased to offer a number of procedures to enhance the health and function of the vagina, including the MonaLisa Touch. Learn more about the causes of painful intercourse and how treatment with MonaLisa Touch can help you overcome your issues.
Causes of Irritable and Painful Intercourse in Women
There are a number of factors that can contribute to uncomfortable sex with both physical and psychological origins. Common causes of painful intercourse for Dallas women include:
- Hormonal changes related to menopause that cause vaginal dryness.
- Thinning of the vaginal wall (vaginal atrophy).
- Vaginitis, which is an inflammation of the vagina (common after childbirth).
- Endometriosis or Uterine Fibroids
- Relationship problems or poor self-esteem are possible psychological triggers of painful intercourse.
Solutions for Irritable and Painful Intercourse
If painful intercourse is a result of psychological or emotional issues, it is best to see a therapist. They might be able to help you sort through your relationship problems or help you see yourself in a different light. If your main problem is feeling self-conscious about your body, Dr. Brady may even be able to perform a labiaplasty or vaginoplasty to help you feel more comfortable in your intimate appearance and/or function.
However, for Dallas women who have physical reasons for painful intercourse, the MonaLisa Touch is often an ideal solution. This quick procedure involves a small handheld device that is gently inserted into the vagina. It then emits an advanced fractional CO2 laser which stimulates and regenerates vaginal tissues. The treatment goal is to increase the blood supply to the vagina as well as help it produce more collagen. With more collagen, the vagina is more pliable, which should help reduce dryness, atrophy, and inflammation.
The MonaLisa Touch treatment will require 3 sessions before you experience optimal results, as your vagina needs time to respond. Most patients start with three sessions spaced six weeks apart and enjoy their final results about three months after the last session. To maintain results, Dr. Brady recommends a single touch-up treatment every year.
