Specializes in Urogynecology

Absolutely: Vaginal intercourse might be painful while the female partner is struggling with a flare up of the syndrome but with careful planning, position changes that diminish direct penetration to the bladder base, and understanding by the partner, intimacy can be a very pleasurable event for all involved.
