Fact or Fiction? Debunking Some Vaginismus Myths

Vaginismus is often misunderstood – and there are plenty of misconceptions swirling around out there. If sex and other types of vaginal penetration are painful for you, you want to make sure that you have all the right information.

Vaginismus Myths or Vaginismus Facts!

Myths Facts of vaginismus_smallLet’s take a look at some common “facts” about vaginismus and separate the fact from the fiction.

  • Vaginismus will just go away without any treatment. Myth! Vaginismus treatment is the only way to experience pain-free penetration. You don’t have to accept a life feeling locked out.
  • Vaginismus can happen to women of any age. Truth! In fact, it’s one of the most treatable sexual pain disorders. Once treated, it very rarely results in a recurrence.
  • My partner is just “too big.” Myth! Having a well-endowed partner has absolutely nothing to do with your vaginismus symptoms. Your vaginal muscles are tightening up, so there isn’t room for anything – especially a larger partner.
  • Pain during sex is normal. Myth! Sex is definitely not supposed to hurt. It’s one of the few things in life that is always supposed to feel good. Don’t settle for anything less.
