Female Pain During Intercourse


Some of my female clients have stopped having (or have never had) intercourse because of fear and pain.  If this has happened to you, you may be suffering from a condition called vaginismus.

Vaginismus is marked by involuntary spasms of the vaginal muscles, usually brought on by the fear of penetration. If you think you have this problem, please know that you are not alone. This condition is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed by health care professionals.

Here are some common themes: shame about not being able to experience intercourse; guilt over lost relationships; and a deep fear that your childbearing years will be lost.

There are solutions! Talk therapy is useful – as is collaborative work with a pelvic floor physical therapist. And there is more.

I have helped many women regain the ability to have intercourse without pain. I especially recall one who proclaimed: “Now I feel triumphant!”
