DYSPAREUNIA

Written by

Dyspareunia means painful or difficult COITUS. In women the cause may be physical – for example, due to local inflammation or infection in the vagina – or psychological; say, a fear of intercourse. In men the cause is usually physical, such as prostatitis (see PROSTATE, DISEASES OF) or a tight foreskin (see PREPUCE).
