Dyspareunia symptoms include recurrent or persistent genital pain associated with sexual intercourse in either a male or a female.
The disturbance causes marked distress or interpersonal difficulty.
The disturbance is not caused exclusively by pelvic pain or lack of lubrication and is not better accounted for by another psychiatric problem (e.g., an anxiety disorder), by the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication), or by a medical condition.
**NOTE: This disorder is now termed genito-pelvic pain/penetration disorder (in females) in DSM-5
