We all know what Erectile Dysfunction is but literally no one is ever taught what Vaginismus is.
For the uninformed, Vaginismus is when the vagina painfully tightens and spasms when faced with pressure from anything trying to insert into the vagina. It’s the reason why many women can’t have vaginal sex without severe pain.
There aren’t a lot of treatments, and there isn’t a single one that is for Vaginismus exclusively…they are all medications or treatments to treat SYMPTOMS but not the causes. In fact, for a long time, doctors waved off Vaginismus as a purely psychological disorder in women.
Seriously, this issue is so unaddressed and uncared for in medical circles. We need to spread awareness.
