The Painful Truth: When Sex Hurts
As a woman, you long for intimacy and sexual fulfillment throughout your life. Unfortunately, as you age and go through menopause, hormonal fluctuations and changes in your body itself may cause intercourse to be less than enjoyable. In fact, it may actually hurt. This pain during intercourse is known as dyspareunia. If the once pleasurable experience of sexual intercourse has suddenly become painful, you already know the pain is not just physical. When sexual function is diminished and desire is replaced by dread, you may battle feelings of shame, anger, fear, frustration and sadness. Perhaps you have already sought help and tried various therapies with minimal or no results. Or, maybe you were told you just needed to “relax,” or that the changes you have experienced were “normal” for someone your age. If so, we want to offer you more than just words of encouragement. We want to offer you a real solution. The truth is, sex does not have to hurt, no matter what your age. Thanks to an innovative yet simple new procedure, we can show you how to fix this very real problem so you can start feeling like yourself again.
Taking the “Ouch” Out of Intercourse
During or following menopause, a woman’s body goes through many changes. For some, physical changes in the vagina can result in what feels like a burning, searing or tearing sensation during sex. Lubricants, vaginal dilators, hormone replacement creams – you’ve tried everything and now avoiding sex altogether may seem like the only solution. Thankfully, it’s not.
Statistics show that as many as 50% of women of menopausal age experience pain before, during, or after sex. While you can take heart in knowing you are not alone, the better news is that you don’t have to live with this condition any longer. Dr. David Ghozland is a skilled, highly experienced OB/GYN and surgeon who has pioneered a revolutionary new treatment that corrects the problems associated with painful intercourse. What’s more, he’s also a kind and compassionate physician with a warm bedside manner who will put you immediately at ease. Dr. Ghozland understands the emotional distress surrounding this sensitive issue. He will listen to your concerns and customize a dysapreunia treatment plan that will completely fix the problem. In just a few short weeks, you can experience renewed intimacy and sexual fulfillment and improved quality of life.

In fact, many of Dr. Ghozland’s patients feel so comfortable, they chat with him, watch a movie or read while undergoing LAVA treatments!
