There are two types of sexual dysfunctions: pain associated with sexual intercourse (dyspareunia, vaginismus, painful scarring) and anorgasmia.
It is not clear whether female sexual pain is a sexual disorder, a pain disorder or both, what we do know is that it has a negative impact on women’s health. Relationships, self-esteem, work productivity… In short, the quality of life is diminished.
This type of sexual dysfunction does not have a specific cause that justifies the pain. It can range from simple anatomical problems to complex biopsychosocial problems, as well as having more than one reason for pain.
It has been reported that the incidence of painful intercourse, a type of PSF, ranged from 8 to 22%, while the prevalence of painful intercourse has been reported to range from 1 to 27%.
This pathology may require a multidisciplinary approach. Diagnosis and treatment includes regenerative gynecology, rehabilitation, pelvic floor physiotherapy and sexology.
Within the regenerative gynecology treatments, it stands out:
Anorgasmia or female orgasmic disorder is the absence of orgasm despite adequate sexual stimulation. It is not always absence, this disorder includes persistent or recurrent delayed, infrequent or less intense orgasm. In addition, its symptoms cause considerable distress.
The incidence of anorgasmia is 10% among the female population.
The treatment of this pathology has a multidisciplinary approach in which sexology and functional gynecology come together. All this facilitates and enhances women’s orgasms.
