Painful Intercourse Q & A

What can cause painful intercourse?

Vaginal dryness is often the leading cause of painful intercourse. Although vaginal dryness is more common in older women, this condition can affect women at any age. Vaginal dryness occurs when your vaginal tissues don’t produce an adequate amount of lubrication, which often causes pain and discomfort during sex. Vaginal dryness can occur due to a variety of reasons. Most often, vaginal dryness results from low estrogen levels due to:

  • Menopause
  • Issues after childbirth
  • Vaginal atrophy


However, vaginal dryness can result from a lack of sexual arousal due to insufficient foreplay or psychological reasons like stress. Other reasons for vaginal dryness can include hygiene products, such as feminine sprays and harsh soaps, and chemicals from swimming pools and hot tubs. Certain medications, such as allergy and cold medicines and some antidepressants, can also dry out your vaginal tissues.


How can you treat vaginal dryness?

Our team at Mother and Child Health Center utilizes the latest generation laser treatment, MonaLisa Touch, to perform innovative vaginal rejuvenation to help reduce your vaginal dryness. This painless and minimally invasive procedure stimulates the production of collagen within your vagina, which restores the proper trophic balance to the area. MonaLisa Touch is the most effective non-surgical and non-pharmacological solution for preventing and treating the effects of vaginal atrophy.


How does MonaLisa Touch work?

Specifically created to treat your vaginal mucosa, the fractional CO2 laser therapy behind MonaLisa Touch prevents and resolves your estrogen levels from dropping in your vaginal tissues. The laser does this by stimulating the production of new collagen, which re-establishes the previous condition of your vaginal mucosa.

This means that your vaginal tissues become more hydrated, thicker, tighter, and more elastic.  The therapy also re-establishes your vagina to the correct pH level, which helps maintain its natural protective barrier and reduces your risk of infection.


What can you expect after the MonaLisa Touch rejuvenation treatment?

One treatment lasts only a few minutes. This painless procedure requires no recovery time nor should you expect to experience any side effects. Because the process of MonaLisa Touch stimulates new collagen within your vaginal tissues immediately, you can notice significant improvements after your first treatment.
