Emotions that Block

In many ways, sexual energy is responsible for human health. A pleasant experience is the continuation of good fortune. Resentment toward the opposite sex, which includes hatred, anger, jealousy, and contempt, interferes with a healthy quality of intimate life.

Dyspareunia from the point of view of Ayurveda

Pain during or after sex, or dyspareunia, can be caused by a variety of factors, including illness, infection, a physical issue, or a psychological difficulty.

Vaginal pain could be caused by:
An infection – thrush or a sexually transmitted infections (STI) like chlamydia, gonorrhea, or genital herpes.
Menopause – changing hormone levels can cause vaginal dryness, and lack of sexual arousal at any age.
Vaginismus – In this condition, the muscles around the vagina tighten due to spasm, making penetration painful or impossible.
Genital irritation – a reaction to spermicides, latex condoms, or products like soap and shampoo.

There are some causes of painful sex in men:
Thrush infections, which can cause soreness and itching, as well as some STIs.
A tight foreskin, which can make penetration painful as the foreskin is pushed back.
Small tears in the foreskin that are not visible but cause soreness and a sharp, stinging pain around the tear.
Inflammation of the prostate gland (prostatitis).
Testicle pain and swelling, which can be caused by being sexually aroused but not ejaculating; it can also be a sign of an infection, such as chlamydia.

According to Ayurveda, dyspareunia is caused by Vata dosha imbalance in the body. It may also be caused by infections, which are most likely caused by Pitta imbalance.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat dyspareunia 

Kumaryasava (a fermented herbal drink) and Gandharvahastadi kashayam (herbal decoction) have been found to be very effective in reducing Vata irregularities.

Anti-inflammatory Ayurvedic drugs like triphala, neem and turmeric have good results.

Please seek the advice of an Ayurvedic doctor before attempting any remedies and treatments for painful sex.
