Sexual health is an important part of your life. For women, sexual health is often considered with reproductive health, which makes it an even more vital aspect of their health. Most women are unaware of most of their sexual health issues and even if they are aware, many don’t feel comfortable seeking help for such issues. So instead of ignoring the symptoms of the following sexual health issues, go to a gynaecologist.
Penetrative sex may be painful for the first few times, especially if you’re not properly lubricated. But a deep or continuous pain during sex persistently might indicate that you have an underlying cause like vaginal dryness or a genital organ disorder.
Getting orgasm is something most sexually active people want, but some women are unable to do so despite ample stimulation. This is known as anorgasmia, and it’s a sexual dysfunction that can be quite distressing for both you and your partner.
Fibroids are non-cancerous tumours made of muscle cells, that grow on or around the uterine walls. These not only cause menstrual issues and infertility but also lower back pain and dyspareunia.
Sexually transmitted infections
These infections are contracted by having sex with an infected person, and can lead to severe health problems. If a pregnant woman gets an STI, she can even pass it on to the unborn baby, which can cause severe complications.
