Patients were stratified into two cohorts based on their most bothersome moderate to severe vaginal atrophy symptom - either vaginal dryness or dyspareunia
Empiric treatment with corticosteroids should be avoided in patients who present with vulvar symptoms such as burning, itching, pain, and dyspareunia
according to one researcher who specializes in the subject area.
In this study, dyspareunia
was the most bothersome symptom at baseline (57%) followed by vaginal dryness, itching and burning.
Among the known sexual consequences of radio therapy in women are vaginal shortening, vaginal inelasticity, insufficient lubrication, and dyspareunia
, she said.
The co-primary endpoints of the study are the change from baseline to week 12 in the percentage of parabasal cells in the vaginal maturation index, the percentage of superficial cells in the vaginal maturation index, vaginal pH, and improvements in the most bothersome moderate to severe vulvovaginal atrophy symptoms of vaginal dryness and dyspareunia
Surgical intervention is most often required in women presenting with symptomatic mesh erosion, pain, and dyspareunia
following vaginal mesh placement for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse, according to the results of two retrospective studies.
5 g and two different dosing regimens -- 21 days on/7 days off or twice weekly -- gives health care professionals and women a new option in treating moderate to severe dyspareunia
due to menopause," says Eileen Helzner, M.
Of the 12 patients who complained of dyspareunia
prior to the Apogee procedure, 6 resolved postoperatively, 4 persisted, and the other 2 patients were no longer sexually active.
The results of the study showed statistically significant improvements in vaginal dryness and dyspareunia
(painful intercourse), two of the most bothersome symptoms associated with VVA.
In 2005, a Cochrane review deemed laparoscopic excision of the cyst capsule to be superior to drainage and electrocoagulation, based on two randomized studies showing that excision was associated with significantly reduced rates of endometrioma recurrence, requirement for further surgery, recurrence of dysmenorrhea symptoms, dyspareunia
, and nonmenstrual pelvic pain.
Ovarian cysts may occur and are generally asymptomatic, but may be accompanied by pelvic pain or dyspareunia
In addition to the hypoactive sexual dysfunction discussed above, OCPs have also been associated with increased incidence of sexual pain disorders such as vulvar vestibulitis (VV), causing dyspareunia
