Dyspareunia (Painful Sex)


Title/Ailment: Painful Sex  

Brief description with source: Vaginal and pelvic pain experienced during or after sex could be caused by numerous things, from an infection or menopause to allergic reactions of the skin caused by spermicides, latex condoms or products such as soap and shampoo. Either way, this is typically a signal from the body that there is an underlying problem. In the event that pain occurs, schedule an appointment with a local health care provider and apply Private Packs to the vulva in the meantime to help mitigate any pain, itchiness or soreness around the genitals.

Symptoms: Pain during penetration, involuntary tightening of pelvic muscles, etc. 

Recommended care (Temperature Recommendations): We recommend your Private Pack in Cool mode for general pain and tenderness post-sex. We recommend the Hot mode for pain caused by vaginal or perineal tears. 

Did you know (Statistic): According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, nearly 3 out of 4 women have pain during intercourse at some time during their lives.
