What is Vaginismus?

Vaginismus is when the female body is afraid of some or all kinds of vaginal penetration. During that process the vaginal muscles tighten up naturally and they have no control over it. Vaginismus can be primary or secondary. Primary vaginismus is when the woman has never managed to penetrate her vagina with any object (tampon, finger, sex-toy, penis). Secondary vaginismus is when after an incident (such as sexual abuse) the woman is not managing to penetrate her vagina. Vaginismus does not necessarily affect the ability to feel aroused and enjoy other kinds of sexual contact. If one suspects that they're suffering from this its advisable to see a gynaecologist or visit a sexual health clinic.
