Do you know what is vaginismus?

Let's talk about it:

1. Vaginismus is an involuntary contraction of the muscles around the opening of the vagina in women without any malformation of the genitals. The contraction of the muscles makes intercourse or any sexual activity involving penetration painful or impossible.

2. There are different types of vaginismus: primary vaginismus (occurring from the first sexual relations, leading to the failure of any attempt at penetration), secondary it can occur after a prolonged period of sexual relations without problem).

3. Vaginismus can have several causes:
• Physics such as:
- Hormonal causes, lack of lubrication or vaginal dryness,
- Medical causes such as: endometriosis, vulvodynia or repeated mycosis, taking contraceptives, childbirth,
- Causes of painful pelvic surgery or consultation
• Psychological such as:
- Sexual trauma (rape),
- Lack of knowledge of the body,
- Taboo sex education,
- Fear of penetration,
- Stress / anxiety,
- Problematic relationship of the couple,
- Difficult or traumatic childbirth.

To remedy this problem of vaginismus here is some natural tip:
- Massage of the genital area during foreplay
- Position of the pelvis and body
- Use of lubricants
- Vaginal steam bath (fight against stress / anxiety and other traumas, promote lubrication, fight against gynecological diseases such as mycosis, endometriosis).
