Question:

Hi, I am a 29 year old female with spondylosis.

Can Spondylosis cause sexual intercourse to be painful?

Thanks

HB

Answer:

Dear HB,

The woman must have relaxed pelvic floor muscles to make love without pain.

Due to the fear of pain the pelvic floor muscles are tensed too much, which causes the love play to hurt.

Any problem in the organs, skin, muscles, bones, ligaments, and nerves in your pelvic area can cause CPP or chronic pelvic pain.

Chronic pelvic pain may occur with an infection or inflammation (swelling) of one or more parts in your pelvic area.

Spondylosis may cause small-capacity hyper-reflexic bladder, manifesting as an overactive bladder.

Women who experience overactive bladder are less likely to enjoy sexual activity, according to a study from the University of Pittsburgh.

Overactive bladder - a condition where the muscle surrounding the bladder contracts spastically may cause genital or abdominal pain.

Those who experienced a significant amount of genital or abdominal pain were less likely to enjoy sexual activity.
