Vaginal pain, what to do?

Vaginal pain affects nearly 20% of women, regardless of age. This pain can manifest itself in different ways. It depends on the location and timing of the pain, as well as the trigger. The pain can be caused by a vaginal infection, lichen, STD, hormonal deficiency or trauma. If you live in Canada and suffer from vaginal pain, don’t hesitate to make an appointment at one of the Marois Clinics. These health professionals use revolutionary techniques to treat your pain.

The symptoms of these pains in women

Vaginal pain can be pain in the perineum, labia, vestibule, vagina, clitoris and even the anus. It can be felt at the entrance or inside the vagina. These pains are usually accompanied by itching, a burning sensation or a muscle imbalance, such as a significant increase in tone.

The pain sensation can range from discomfort to intense pain when touching the area or during sexual intercourse. A woman who suffers from vaginal pain has great difficulty wearing tight pants or underwear or riding a bicycle.

Causes of vaginal pain

The origin of vaginal pain is still unknown. However, different factors can play an important role.

What to do to relieve vaginal pain?

When you feel pain in your vagina, vulva or perineum, you should not suffer in silence, but make an appointment with a doctor. In this case, your problem will be analyzed to find the cause of your pain. Depending on the diagnosis, different solutions will be proposed to you.

No matter what treatment is recommended, it is important to ensure that your pelvic floor muscles are relaxed. You should make an appointment with a physiotherapist. Perineal reeducation may also help.

Possible urological treatments

To relieve vaginal pain, various urological treatments are available at the Marois Clinics. If the pain is due to lichen sclerosus, it is possible to opt for a treatment with platelet-rich plasma. This treatment consists of injections of micro-droplets of plasma into the vulvar area. When the plasma is injected under the skin, the platelets release growth factors that stimulate the dermis. It is important to know that plasma injections to treat vulvar lichen sclerosus are 100% natural. Four sessions spread over two to four weeks are usually required. Each session lasts approximately one hour. The first results are visible between three and six months after the injections.

The Marois Clinics also offer treatment for vaginal pain using radio frequency and electrostimulation. The use of devices such as the Vtone, the Plus90 or the MorpheusV8 allow us to treat problems related to weakening of the pelvic floor, vaginal atrophy or lichen sclerosus. The Vtone induces electrostimulation. As for the MorpheusV8, it uses a bipolar radiofrequency technique. These two devices help to rehabilitate weak muscles and to fight against urinary incontinence. Finally, the Plus90 helps to improve blood circulation. Opting for vulvovaginal treatment with radio frequency and electrostimulation is risk-free. It is non-invasive, non-surgical and is approved by Health Canada.

Soulager douleur vaginale

Another type of treatment offered by Les Cliniques Marois is laser treatment. Non-invasive and painless, it consists of a circumferential photothermal treatment of the mucous membrane of the vaginal wall. Choosing to undergo laser treatment for vaginal atrophy activates the production of collagen and improves the vascularization of the mucosa. The procedure is very simple and offers excellent results. In fact, only two sessions are needed to obtain clear improvements in vaginal atrophy. In general, the treatment is effective for 15 to 18 months.

At Cliniques Marois, you can also have plasma injected to treat chronic bladder or urethral pain. Opting for an intimate injection of plasma for chronic bladder or urethral pain increases circulation and regenerates tissues in the clitoral, perineal and vaginal areas. When injected, platelet-rich plasma provides excellent results for 12 to 18 months. However, it is recommended to wait at least 48 hours before having sexual intercourse. Women who choose this treatment should also engage in daily physical activity.


Suffering from vaginal pain is not inevitable. If you suffer from vaginal pain, don’t hesitate to consult a specialist, because it can affect your self-esteem and your sexuality.

To get your sex life back to normal, the Marois Clinics offer various treatments. All of them are highly effective, non-invasive and approved by Health Canada.
