His main interest is treating skin conditions in male and female genital area including warts treatment and various STIs, and specializes in vulvar painful conditions (vulvodynias and dyspareunia).

Dyspareunia is a genital condition closely related to the vulvar chronic pain syndrome that is very common in women but can affect male individuals as well, occurring during or after intercourse. Superficial dyspareunia consists in pain sensations felt in the vagina, clitoris or labia that manifests strictly at the moment of penetration and ceases when the action is discontinued. Most women have described the symptoms as burning or cramping pain, resembling the one occurring during menstruation or worse, which vary regarding intensity and location, but all lead to the loss of interest in sexual activities, which can have both physical and psychological consequences.

The causes of superficial dyspareunia may range from provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) which refers to an alteration in the nervous system that confuses mild discomfort stimuli with significant pain, being probably a form of vulvar chronic pain, anthropic vaginitis, vulvar disorder, genital herpes simplex, postsurgical narrowing of the vagina to congenital malformations or dryness due to lack of estrogen which also causes recurring tearing of the posterior fourchette.

Superficial dyspareunia occurs in one out of five women and the diagnosis is made based on symptoms and pelvic examination, the specialist or gynecologist also examining the vulvar skin and the condition of the outer genitalia. A PVD test may also be recommended, which is quick and painless, implying a cotton swab diagnosis. As the cause of superficial dyspareunia may also be psychological, due to previously experienced trauma, our Consultant specialist, Dr. Amgad R Habib may also ask you a few questions that will help him determine an exact cause of the superficial dyspareunia and thus allow him to set an accurate diagnosis and further, an appropriate treatment that will best suit your individual case.

Superficial dyspareunia treatments are customized according to each patient’s situation, medical and sexual history and current health condition, with a possibility to include antifungal cream for yeast infections, analgesics, estrogen creams of pill for lubrication of the vagina, antibiotics for various infections, or surgery for the removal of cysts, large fibroids or for the correction of congenital malformations.
