Brenda Prepares for Vaginal Loosening Procedure after Years of Painful Sex
An emotional wife discusses about 20 years of frustration with painful sex, and the decision to undergo a three-part procedure to relieve the aggravation and anxiety she and her husband experienced.
Dr. David Ghozland, M.D., explains how dyspareunia, or pain during intercourse is not necessarily rare for women, and outlines the LAVA procedure – Laser Augmentation of the Vaginal Area. The modern procedure combines laser therapy, a surgical approach, and medical therapy.
“Over the course of 20 years, it had been a struggle,” the husband says. The couple of 39 years was advised by physicians and surgeons to attempt other possible remedies from painful sex including creams, use of dilators, physical therapy, and even “use a toy.” Nothing helped. “We felt doomed, for the rest of our lives,” the wife explains.
The LAVA procedure, overseen by Dr. Ghozland, has attained full recovery from all patients to date. On average, in about 8 weeks patients can expect full recovery and a lifetime of pain-free intimacy.
