Occasional cramps or discomfort are not necessarily a sign of trouble. These symptoms often accompany PMS and typically go away on their own over time. However, when vaginal pain is especially uncomfortable or persistent, this could be a sign of trouble. There are many underlying factors that can contribute to experiencing this pain, both physical and psychological. Our team at Cohen Medical Practice is here to explore and address them. If you are experiencing chronic or prolonged pain in your pelvis, vagina, or any other surrounding areas, we welcome you to visit one of our three NYC locations today.
What Causes Vaginal Pain?
Vaginal pain can be caused by a multitude of underlying issues. Some of the most common reasons include a yeast infection or STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia. In some cases, the issue may stem from trauma due to sexual intercourse or vulvar vestibulitis. In severe instances, vaginal pain may be a symptom of cervical cancer. It is important to get a thorough evaluation before jumping to any diagnosis, especially if it is serious.
Can This Be a Serious Issue?
Women of all ages can experience vaginal pain, but some may be at an increased risk due to their medical history. Those who have undergone hormonal changes due to childbirth or menopause can experience this issue more often. In some cases, this pain may be indicative of a larger, much more serious underlying condition. Proper testing and analysis is absolutely necessary to come to a firm diagnosis and give you the treatment you deserve.
