Vaginismus is a condition affecting women where vaginal penetration for the purpose of intercourse, or gynaecological examination by a doctor, or Pap smear or any other such activity is either extremely painful or impossible. Vaginismus would not allow even superficial penetration and the typical experience of intercourse is described like hitting a brick wall.
Despite most women having experienced the problem during their lifetime due to one reason or another, there are myths and taboos surrounding it. Discussing sexual problems out in the open is seen as being frivolous, or available or too sexual.
Vaginismus has both psychological and physical roots and this interplay is what makes the problem more complex. The good part is its almost 100% curable with the right team approach.
This podcast is in conversation with Psychotherapist Mrs Mansi Poddar as she throws light on the psychological problems leading to Vaginismus, based on her and her team's work with various women.
