Can those with vaginismus have intercourse?
Kiss. Dr. Minegül Eben: “Vaginismus can be defined as strong contractions in the outer part of the vagina and in the pelvic muscles that prevent sexual intercourse and can occur in different intensities. The woman's attempt to force herself to have sexual intercourse causes trauma in the contracted vaginal entrance, causing the woman to fear sexual intercourse even more. A very good history should be taken from the couple for the diagnosis of vaginismus. In order to determine whether the problems experienced in sexual intercourse are caused by vaginismus, the person should go to a gynecologist examination. In the examination, it is investigated whether there are anatomical problems that will prevent sexual intercourse. '' she said.
Does vaginismus go away on its own?
Underlining that vaginismus is a psychological disease and must be treated, Op. Dr. Minegül Eben continued her words as follows: "Thinking that there will be pain in the relationship creates fear and tension. This causes vaginal contraction in every attempt to have intercourse. It is very easy to treat when the right methods are used.

As this situation continues, couples and marriage problems begin. Vaginismus can be treated in a short time with the sexual therapy method. Couples should apply to therapy together and be understanding towards each other in this process. Complete recovery and painless sexual intercourse in the treatment of vaginismus depend on the severity of the disease and the compliance of the spouses with the treatment. '' said.
