Painful sex isn’t normal, but it is common. 3 in 4 women will experience painful sex, or dyspareunia, at some point in their lives. A frequent cause of dyspareunia is ovulation. 1 in 5 women experiences some type of pain during ovulation, which can interfere with sex.
Both Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS for short) and Endometriosis are conditions that can be difficult for women to be diagnosed with. But combining both can not only make a woman’s life painful but also can feel upsetting and isolating to find the right treatment.
