Dyspareunia (Pain During Sex) Lipogems Treatment
Our exclusive Lipogems® treatment uses your own regenerative cells to restore your vaginal health. A single visit offers a solution to a wide range of conditions including Dyspareunia (pain during sex).
What is Dyspareunia?
Dyspareunia is the clinical term for pain during and/or after intercourse and is often a symptom of Atrophic Vaganitis – most commonly associated with the menopause. Dyspareunia can also be caused by pain in the perineal region caused by scarring or a traumatic childbirth.
Due to the lack of oestrogen, atrophic vaginas lack elasticity and can be dry and unlubricated. This can make sexual intercourse painful. The pain can be superficial, affecting the opening of the vulva, or it can be felt deep within the pelvis.
What are the symptoms of Dyspareunia?
Dyspareunia can cause women both physical and emotional distress and have a negative effect on a woman’s mental wellbeing and their intimate relationships.
If you have painful intercourse, you might feel:
- Pain during penetration, including putting in a tampon
- Deep pain during thrusting
- Burning or aching pain
- Throbbing pain, lasting hours after intercourse
How can the Regenerative Clinic help treat Dyspareunia?

Consultant Gynaecologist, Miss Shohreh Beski explains how Lipogems® can help…
“My special interest is in the menopause as I am one of those ladies who has gone through that and I have seen and felt myself, what problems it brings.
For women at this age, their vagina and vulva can be affected by the decrease of hormones and they can often tell me that they do not wish to have any further sexual intercourse and this is because of the dryness and pain experienced.
The new technique, which I am excited about is our Lipogems® treatment. It has been used for painful joints (orthopaedics) in over 30,000 patients by extracting repair cells or Mesenchymal stem cells and seeing joint pain decrease. We have also seen great benefits for postmenopausal women by restoring vaginal health.
We have seen the significant benefits of their postmenopausal symptoms and also how it worked in other ways which we didn’t expect for example, for urinary stress incontinence.”
