Dyspareunia, a symptom rather than a diagnosis, is defined as pain experienced by a woman during intercourse. This article discusses how to elicit an accurate sexual history and lists 12 common causes of dyspareunia. Three case reports from the authors' practices will be used to describe the diagnosis and treatment of women with vulvar vestibulitis, hymenal strands, and vaginismus.
