What causes Vaginismus
Many women who suffer from vaginismus feel alone, embarrassed and ashamed. They often suffer in silence by avoiding any sexual activity and some women even refuse to start a relationship. Vaginismus is actually a common sexual issue and professional help is available so you can start to have sex with your partner.
To heal and resolve vaginismus you must create change to retrain your mind, body and heart to enable you to have sex with confidence, calmness and ease - and without pain.
What is vaginismus?
Vaginismus is a condition that makes sexual penetration, medical exams and inserting tampons impossible. The muscles around the vagina tense and tighten involuntarily which makes sex and penetration impossible.
How Vaginismus impacts your life
Many women contact me feeling confused and frustrated about vaginismus. They love their partner deeply, yet their bodies will not let them have sex.
They don't understand why their body and vagina responds by tightening, closing, shutting down or putting a wall up - but they know the impact it has on their lives and relationships. These women worrying that they will not be able to get pregnant naturally, experience anxiety about sex being painful and worried their partners may leave them, because they can't have sex. They often lose their identity as a woman and some women will not even start a relationship.
The inner conflict
One side of them wants to have sex and become closer and more intimate with their partner, and other side doesn't want to as it feels safe and secure in the old behaviour patterns - this is the aspect that creates fear and anxiety about sex.
It's essential to work with these two sides - otherwise the inner conflict will become bigger. As we work together on the Vaginismus Hypnotherapy Empowerment Programme you will learn how to get these to two sides to work together to create positive changes and reduce the inner conflict, anxiety and fear.
What causes vaginismus?
It's important to know that each woman is different and therefore each underlying causes are different.
