Vaginismus is a female sexual disorder in which a woman experiences vaginal pain due to involuntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles. This pain is often experienced as a burning or stinging sensation. Women with this condition report that any penetration, whether from intercourse, a speculum at a gynecologist visit, or a tampon, causes this pain.

Vaginismus is the number one cause of unconsummated or sexless marriages. It can appear at the onset of marriage or years into a marriage. Women often come to me feeling very frustrated at not being able to have intercourse. They feel angry at themselves and their bodies and their self confidence is diminished. They also frequently blame themselves for their troubled sex life.
