Stop Painful Sex (Dyspareunia) with Natural Lubricants

What is Dyspareunia?

Dyspareunia is the scientific name for pain during or after sex. It is in fact a common condition that will affect one in five women at some stage in their lives. The causes of painful sex can be attributed to an infection, an illness, physical issues in the vaginal area or psychological problems.

For the vast majority of women, pain during intercourse will be the result of vaginal dryness, leaving the sensitive vaginal tissues vulnerable during sex. However, dyspareunia can be caused by other conditions such as vaginismus, vulvodynia, infections or skin conditions such as Lichen Sclerosus.

Although some women might feel embarrassed or ashamed, it is important that you talk to your doctor to identify the cause of the problem as soon as possible and treat it efficiently.

Professionals recommendations

“Lubrication is a very important part of the physical arousal process and often women will need additional lubrication to help them enjoy stimulation of the vulval area, including the clitoris and vagina.

Having tested all the lubrication available on the market, AH! YES has, in my opinion, proved to be the best in terms of viscosity and maintaining moistness whilst not causing any irritation whatsoever. I recommend it to all my clients and also to the medical students I teach so that they in turn can recommend it to their future patients.”
