An involuntary contraction of the vagina
Vaginismus mainly affects young women during their first sexual intercourse. There is an involuntary contraction of the muscle walls of a woman's vagina, which makes any kind of vaginal penetration painful or impossible.
One of the easiest symptoms to treat
Vaginismus is in itself one of the easiest symptoms to treat. It is often accompanied by psychological problems (anxiety, personality disorders, depression) that can also be treated.
