Painful Sex Q & A

What causes painful sex?

There are many different underlying conditions that may contribute to uncomfortable or downright painful sex. If you experience pain during sex, it could be the result of endometriosis, ovarian cysts, or pelvic muscle dysfunction. The most common cause for women during and after menopause, or as a result of another medical condition, is vaginal atrophy, the result of common physical changes to your body from menopause such as vaginal dryness and thinning vaginal tissue.

What are the symptoms of painful sex?

Symptoms of painful sex range from a feeling of vaginal over-tightness and dryness, to a lack of tissue elasticity, or a burning sensation throughout your vagina, internally and/or externally. Also, when you don’t have enough lubrication, as is typical after menopause when your body produces less estrogen, it may cause inflammation, tearing, or bleeding of vaginal tissue during sex. Sometimes, as your vaginal tissue thins with age, it can cause painful tearing or tugging during intercourse.

How is painful sex treated?

The V-Revive team provides state-of-the-art laser treatments to relieve dryness and discomfort during sex. These non-surgical, painless treatments include:

  • MonaLisa Touch® laser therapy
  • CO2RE Intima® laser therapy
  • The O-Shot® platelet-rich plasma therapy 

Laser treatments help to renew vaginal tissue, create more lubrication, and improve the elasticity of thinning vaginal tissue.

How does laser therapy treat the symptoms of painful sex?

The CO2RE Intima and MonaLisa Touch laser therapies help to repair vaginal tissue using safe laser energy delivered directly to the vaginal tissue through a small intervaginal wand. Each of these treatments takes just several minutes with minimal or no discomfort or painful side effects. Over time, your vaginal tissue regenerates, renewing lubrication and elasticity, helping to relieve the pain of intercourse and make it physically more pleasurable.

Some women notice a difference after their first laser therapy appointment, but others need a few treatments. The V-Revive team tailors a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs and symptoms so you can get maximum relief and long-lasting benefits.

What is the O-Shot?

The O-Shot is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment that uses platelets from your own blood to help decrease vaginal pain and improve other symptoms. The platelets from your blood contain special growth factors that go directly into your clitoral and vaginal tissue with the O-Shot.

The growth factors help renew tissue and promote increased sensation and sensitivity. Many women experience an immediate difference in their sex life after receiving the O-Shot because it can potentially help:

  • Decrease pain
  • Improve libido
  • Increase ability to orgasm
  • Improve incontinence problems
