Myth #6 If sex is painful, you should just push through it!

Topic: Female Sexual Pain 

Part 1 of 3:
This myth is coming to you in three parts!

In the first video, I cover:

• The definition of female sexual pain.
• Overview of some of the anatomical/biological origins
• Common symptoms
• Overview of some potential causes

 In the second video, I cover:

• Seeking medical and mental health treatment
• Tracking symptoms (pain diary)
• Some recommended treatments

Resources sited and other helpful information:
Book: When Sex Hurts by Goldstein, Goldstein, and Pukall
The International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH)
The Institute for Sexual Medicine
The International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disorders (ISSVD)

In the third video, I cover:

• Sexuality and intimacy are more than just intercourse
• Pain after birth
• Frequently asked questions

*Disclaimer #1 – These video contains information that some may consider explicit, not suitable for the workplace or better saved for when not around sensitive company.

**Disclaimer #2 – Due to the information in the Sex Myths Series being targeted toward a general audience, much if the information is generalized and attempts to take down myths that are over-generalized to begin with. Sexuality is experienced so differently from person to person and it is my hope to address a range of sexuality myths throughout the year, that most people will be able to relate from time to time.
