Is it normal that my thermiva procedure hurt?
I do tell my patients if they did notice any improvement after the first thermiva treatment that a second one is not a good idea. You should have some positive results so you know you are on the right track. That said, its possible that the technician isn't well trained. You should get a physical examination. Good luck!
ThermiVA and Results
Pain during and after ThermiVa
If your treating provider is not a gynecologist or pelvic floor expert then he/she will likely not have a clue as to why you're have lost bladder control and have had painful sex. If this is the case, then make an appointment with your gyn.
Best of luck,

ThermiVa is a procedure that should not hurt.
ThermiVa is a procedure that should not hurt. It should be a comfortable procedure. Ask for an explanation as to why from the Physician performing or supervising the procedure. If you do not get an adequate explanation get another opinion from an experienced Physician.
Painful anything with ThermiVa is not normal
Hello and I hope you're feeling better
Thank you for sharing your concerns and experience. None of what you describe is how a ThermiVa experience should be for a patient and is concerning. The average depth of a vagina is 8 to 9 and it sounds like your procedure was in consistent contact with your cervix, which could be the cause of your pain and discomfort. I would advise that you communicate with the providing practice to be sure they’re aware, however I may also recommend you consider consulting with your OB/GYN specialist and other practices to be sure you’re provided the best care.
I’m very sorry to learn that you had this experience with ThermiVa.

Your experience is not typical. The procedure is normally very tolerable and does not produce the symptoms you described. I would speak with the office who performed the procedure.
ThermiVa should never hurt or cause painful sex. It would be a good recommendation for you to go get an exam by a reputable doctor. Report your experience to the practice, so they can make the necessary precautions to keep it from happening again.
