Vaginismus – When Sexual Intercourse Seems Impossible
Vaginismus is defined as a Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration Disorder. Its immediate cause is an involuntary spasm of the muscles surrounding the vaginal opening over which the patient has no control. This makes all attempts at vaginal penetration difficult or impossible. Included in this would be attempted penetration with a finger, vaginal dilator, GYN examination, sex toys and of course intercourse.
