Being sexual beings, we all desire for satisfying sexual experiences. But due to our chaotic lifestyle and daily stresses, our sex lives have been affected badly. Though there can be numerous factors as to why couples are not enjoying their sex life, there is one reason (known as vaginismus) that they might not be aware of.
Vaginismus is the involuntary tightening of the muscles around a woman’s vagina whenever she is having an intercourse with a man. It causes her pelvic floor muscles to tangle, making sex unbearable.
The reason why this happens is primarily due to stress because the pelvic floor muscles tense up when you feel stressed which causes the vagina to involuntarily tighten, too.
Though this problem is not too common, gynecologists say that they see around 400 women a year suffering from vaginismus.
Well, the good news is that vaginismus can be treated. One way is that physiotherapists can help you retrain pelvic floor muscles through their exercises.
Secondly, dilators are also recommended by doctors and physiotherapists, which can relax your pelvic muscles. It is like setting a reset button on your vagina. It will help in getting rid of painful sex.
Let no stress or trauma ruin your sex life. And if you feel similar symptoms, it is advisable to consult a doctor asap.
