Female Genital Pain Disorders

While Female Genital Pain Disorders often manifest themselves in physical symptoms, sometimes the root of the issue is psychological. Anything from pain during sex, menstruation or urination to muscle spasms may have their root in psychological issues. Additionally, Female Genital Pain Disorders may have psychological effects on the sufferer as a secondary symptom of the physical problem – ex: intimacy issues, lowered self-esteem etc.

Some Female Genital Pain Disorder include:

  • Pelvic Floor Hypertonus
  • Vaginismus
  • Dyspareunia
  • Atrophic vaginitis
  • Vestibulodynia
  • Interstitial Cystitis/PainfulBladder Syndrome
  • Endometriosis
