Sexuality is a central aspect of human beings, and it is experienced and expressed throughout life. Therefore, it is influenced by the interaction of biological, psychological, socioeconomic, political-cultural, ethical, legal, historical and religious factors.

The human sexual response is closely linked with the autonomic nervous system, pelvic-perineal mechanics, and urogynecological physiology. Therefore, thanks to physical therapy, coital pain (such as dyspareunia and vaginismus) or anorgasmia can be benefited.

Dyspareunia is characterized by pain associated with intercourse. And in its most severe form we speak of vaginismus, a sexual dysfunction in which vaginal penetration is impossible during sexual intercourse.



  • Contextualize female sexual function
  • Understand the main anatomical considerations and pathophysiology of dyspareunia
  • Provide the student with practical resources in terms treatment strategies for the assessment and treatment of the patient with sexual pain
