Avoiding Sexual Intercourse? It Can Increase Vulvovaginal Pain

Vulvovaginal pain is the pain in the vulvar area. This pain covers extensive range of disorders and can arise from a number of sources. Some of the gynecological sources of vulvovaginal uneasiness include infections in vagina, fungal as well as bacterial overgrowth. These infections cause the changes in the environment of the vagina.

Hormone related discomfort is thought as another major cause of vulvovaginal pain. This uneasiness occurs at the time of menopause as well as postmenopausal period. The deficiency of estrogen at the time of menopause causes the tapering of the vulvar tissue along with subsequent pain. Dermatological causes of Vulvovaginal pain consist of a large selection of conditions connecting vulvar tissue transformations. This can lead to the thickening of the vulvar skin and cause localized irritative signs. Venerological source of vulvovaginal pain includes all sexually transmitted diseases.

However, sexual intercourse is known to be one of the best ways to deal with Vulvovaginal pain. A Canadian study has showed that millions of women suffering from this pain can be eased with the help of positive response from the partners on the bed. However, the situation can be worsened if the couple avoids sexual actions.

Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD), which is set off by sex, is in general endured by about 12 percent of women between the youth and menopause. This unceasing and persistent pain can cause major sexual dysfunction, mental and emotional distress as well as the cheap quality of life. Again if the partner of the sufferer is over responsive and controlling to such a point that he avoids sexual contact, he can aggravate the problem. This has been claimed by a psychologist of University of Montreal. Such partner could make worse the pain of the woman by increasing her nervousness, hyper-vigilance as well as pessimistic thoughts about the pain, thereby increasing her hurting at the time of intercourse.

As per another research, it would be better to avert penetration but to concentrate on other kinds of sexual performance. However, psychotherapy of the women along with their partners would be considered as the best option so as to fight the total loss of sexual craving as well as evading of sexual intercourse.
