My name is Linda Connors and as a Hypnotherapist in London I combine hypnosis, counselling, psychotherapy, coaching with a mindful and intuitive approach to help women overcome vaginismus. After I experienced sexual problems during my 20s I decided to go on a journey of self-discovery to connect with my sexual energy. From this place I will share with you all I discovered, my insights, knowledge to help you to find your path of self-discovery to to overcome vaginismus.
Here's some information on what vaginismus is and why some women experience painful sex.
What is Vaginismus?
Vaginismus is a vaginal tightness or involuntary contraction causing penetration problems, pain or an inability to experience sexual intercourse. Inserting a finger or tampon or going an internal examination may also cause a lot of discomfort and pain.
Primary vaginismus is the inability to experience sexual intercourse because of the condition. Secondary vaginismus occurs after a woman has been sexually active but now finds sex difficult, painful or impossible.
Why some women experience painful intercourse
Vaginismus is a learned response to sex and the body habitually shuts down to “protect” itself. If your first sexual experience was painful, unpleasant or you were simply not ready this may generate feelings of anxiety and fear associated with sex and sexual relationships which can cause the body to shut down sexually.
Belief systems, thought, relationship issues, medical conditions, sexual abuse and feelings associated with sex can also directly impact how you and your body responds to sex.
If you are ready to take the next steps to transform your sex life Vaginismus therapy may be the key you are looking for.
