Painful sex: When Sex Seems Impossible by Dr. Peter T. Pacik
This blog discusses Chapter 4 of the book “When Sex Seems Impossible. Stories of Vaginismus and How You Can Achieve Intimacy” to better understand vaginismus and what needs to be done for successful vaginismus treatment.
The table of contents and the first two chapters can be read in their entirety.
You can contact us to get further information about vaginismus treatment.
Chapter 4 titled “Getting the right diagnosis” is an extension of Ch. 3 using a case history of Lilly who was misdiagnosed with provoked vestibulodynia and her success once the correct diagnosis of vaginismus was made. It is important to make the right diagnosis because the Botox multimodal treatment program works best for vaginismus and less so for other types of sexual pain.
There is considerable confusion among clinicians who often use vulvodynia and vestibulodynia as the diagnosis when in fact the correct diagnosis is vaginismus. Each of these sexual pain disorders requires a different treatment to achieve successful penetration.
