Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)

Tests and diagnosis

MRI

MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.

A pelvic exam may be done as a part of a routine checkup to evaluate your gynecologic health, or to help diagnose a medical condition.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of structures in your body.
