Vaginismus (vaginism) treated with hypnosis and hypnotherapy at Liz Hogon Hypnotherapy in Burwood East, Melbourne


What is vaginismus?

Vaginismus (painful intercourse) is the involuntary contraction in the genital region making sex painful or impossible for a woman.

Some women have never been able to have normal sexual intercourse as vaginal penetration is too painful (called primary vaginismus). This is often discovered in their teenage years when they try to start using tampons or perhaps find an internal examination at their doctors extremely uncomfortable.

Others have had sex in the past but now find it difficult or impossible (this is secondary vaginismus). Secondary vaginismus can be caused by genital infections, surgery, child-birth or even rape. Dyspareunia is the medical word for 'painful intercourse' - it is used to describe all types of sexual / vaginal pain.

Women with vaginismus have learned to expect pain during intercourse either because of a previous experience or simply imagining that sex will be painful and this causes the muscles around the vagina to tighten and close up.

It is a fallacy that women who suffer with vaginismus don't want sex - in most cases these women yearn for it and this inability to engage in full pleasurable sex causes a huge void in their lives and places a huge strain on any relationships they may have.

Vaginismus or vaginism causing intercourse pain can have a physical cause so please have your doctor diagnose you before consulting for therapy.

Vaginismus is much more common condition than people realise.
