Vaginismus is a condition where the muscles at the opening of the vagina tighten involuntarily, even though a women desires sexual intercourse.
The tight muscle contraction makes sexual intercourse very uncomfortable or impossible.
Vaginismus usually begins when a woman first attempts to have sexual intercourse. However, it can develop later in life when some other factor causes intercourse to be painful.
This painful sexual intercourse can easily spiral into fear of sex.
This fear of sex makes the vaginal muscles contract even tighter when sexual intercourse, or even foreplay, is attempted.
Continuing attempts at sexual intercourse can then become even more painful or impossible.
We men often don't even know such a condition can exist. Or, that it can be created by physically painful sexual intercourse.
So, if our partner develops this condition, we tend to misunderstand it and see it as personal rejection. It is not!
This condition is a genetic physical survival mechanism of the female body.
When a man has a mild penile curvature, there usually will be no problem with sexual intercourse for either partner. It may make no difference at all.
But with a Peyronies disease condition, an erection can become severely bent. A bend with a 45 degree angle is common. A bend with even a 90 degree angle can result in extreme cases.
"A severely bent penis
can put great and unusual strain on the vaginal wall.
Over a short period of time,
this can cause the development of this vaginal pain problem."
The big problem with Peyronies disease is that once the penile shaft starts bending, it usually continues to keep bending for a matter of months.
The original curve or bend may not have been a problem during intercourse.
But, as the the bend increases it may put far too much pressure on the vaginal wall and vaginal opening. This can cause a lot of pain. Even physical damage.
This pain, if great enough, can cause an automatic fear of sex in the female partner. This fear can then trigger the vaginal muscles to contact before sexual contact or on sexual contact of any kind.
And that can easily be the cause of this problem.
When diagnosing this condition, doctors look for scars, infections, or other abnormalities to try to determine what could be causing the symptoms.
When vaginismus is the problem, no such abnormalities will be found.
The diagnosis is also based on the woman's description of the problem. It will include her sexual and medical history, her childhood and adolescence history, and a pelvic examination.
During the examination, it is very important for the woman to let her doctor know if her partner has developed a bent penis.
Vaginismus is a reflexive muscular tightening action.
Once this condition develops, any sexual contact may cause a problem. Even after the penis has been straightened.
Treatment aims to weaken the reflexive tightening of the vaginal muscles. And, to reduce the fear of pain that occurs when the vagina and surrounding areas are touched.
This is accomplished with vaginismus touching exercises that a woman performs herself. Over a period of time, these exercises will weaken the muscle contracting reflex.
Eventually the woman's body learns it is OK for her to touch her vagina and vaginal area, and finally she will learn to penetrate her vagina with her fingers and without pain.
As she gets used to this, the muscle contractions reduce and finally stop.
Then intercourse can be comfortably, and usually successfully tried again.

to be even a little uncomfortable for your partner."
