How We Investigate Sexual Discomfort / Pain
When you see a women’s health provider for sexual pain or discomfort, they will do a thorough analysis of your reproductive health. Your doctor will also do a physical exam that can include a pelvic, rectal, and Pap smear test. Having bloodwork or a transvaginal ultrasound can also give you a better idea of what is contributing to pain during intercourse.
The providers at Mile High can help you find a proper treatment for the discomfort you’re experiencing, but being prepared can help speed up the investigative process. Make sure you are noting where the pain is located in your body, how often it happens, the severity of it, how long you have been experiencing it, and any remedies you have tried to fix it.
