Sexual Problems or Pain
Painful or uncomfortable sex can be due to a number of causes including pelvic floor muscle activity, hormonal fluctuations, scar tissue, traumatic events, or other medical conditions.
The good news is that with an holistic approach to treatment, you can often move towards finding sex comfortable again and enjoying that part of your life. Various treatment approaches may be recommended, including massage and manual therapy, dilators or biofeedback, relaxation and yoga, mind-body work and other strategies to work towards your optimal wellbeing in this area. At times a multi-disciplinary team approach may be beneficial and referral on to a sexual health doctor and/or sexual counsellor may be suggested as part of your treatment plan.
