When Sex Hurts|HER Body PT

Vaginal penetration should not be painful.  Women will often experience pain when first participating in sexual activities or inserting a tampon.  Some women postpartum will experience pain especially following a vaginal delivery.  Hormonal fluctuations later in life can also result in discomfort with penetration. 

Help is available.  Women should not accept that penetration=pain.  Treatment for this issue may include relaxation strategies, myofascial release work, use of therapeutic tools such as vaginal dilators and pelvic wands.   

This can be a difficult topic for many women to discuss with their provider. Dr. Moses' goal is ensure that women feel they have a safe space to discuss these personal issues.  Together, with Dr. Moses, you will work to establish a treatment plan that feels comfortable for you.
