Vaginismus is a condition which causes vaginal muscles to tighten and so makes sex very painful or impossible. It is nothing unusual, however it is nothing pleasant. And even though there are lots of possible causes, exercises could help you relieve the pain which, if not treated, can affect your sexual life badly. However, if you do the exercises described in this article, then you could save yourself a lot of time and trouble. And of course, pain.

So read and learn!

Here is how you should do the exercises:

You have maybe heard of Kegel exercises, have you not? Well, if not, then let me explain. They are very easy and basically, what you need to do is just squeeze the muscles inside your vagina, then hold for about 2 seconds and relax. 20 at a time should be enough. Well, but you can do as many of them as you want. They do not really require any special equipment, do they?


A few days later, try inserting one finger, just a little bit, while doing the exercises. Slowly, add fingers until you get to three. However, if you do not feel comfortable, do not push it. Take your time. Breathe. Relax. Do anything that makes you feel better and that you think might help you with your vaginismus.

Of course, if your vaginismus is a result of trauma, or stress, then you might want to try therapy. Do not be scared, therapy could really help you and save you a lot of trouble. You are not the only person dealing with vaginismus, remember that. And you should not feel ashamed.

Talking about your problem openly with your doctor is the key to dealing with vaginismus. Also, discussing this issue with your partner might help too. Let him be your support! It will make your relationship stronger.

Do not let such banal things ruin your relationship or your sex life. We know that you might feel depressed, but remember, this is not the end of the world. And the sooner you realize that the better. Vaginismus is not a permanent condition. Well, not if you cure it. And it can be cured. All you have to do is try to find out what might be causing it. And that requires patience.

Eventually, there is one thing I need to remind you of: the exercises that you should do are only to relieve the pain. But if the cause of vaginismus is psychological, they will not help. And you will probably need to go to a doctor.
