Male Sexual Pain: assessment and multidisciplinary approach


Speaker: Yacov Reisman

Aim and Content

Male Sexual Pain (MSP), also known as male dyspareunia, is a common health problem that has devastating personal, sexual and relational implications. MSP is chronic or persistent pain in the genital or pelvic area that develops during or shortly after sexual activity and lasts three months or longer. It is often part of chronic pelvic pain. The disorder has gained little attention in the medical literature, and our understanding of epidemiology, etiology and treatment options is poor due to a lack of research.

An overview of patient assessment and available treatments will be given during the webinar. A complete clinical history, including the sexual response cycle, a physical examination, and further inquiries based on clinical suspicions, are part of the patient assessment. The causative agents of MSP can be divided into four categories: isolated ejaculatory pain, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, medical causes, and psychological causes. There are several triggers for each of them, and therefore the therapy is often multimodal, ranging from medication to psychological interventions, and is guided according to the underlying cause.

Learning Objectives:

–              Understanding the mechanism of pain and the function of the pelvic floor

–              Learn how to assess the patient and the possible etiology

–              Learn about the holistic multidisciplinary approach

–              Know measurements for patient’s self-assert
