Vaginismus symptoms can occur in different ways. Therefore, many patients with vaginismus can live unaware of their own situation. Symptoms and degrees vary widely from person to person. In fact, even in some gynecologist examinations, vaginismus problem can be ignored and couples are given information about having no problem. This causes couples to lose time for treatment. Because symptoms and degrees of vaginismus vary considerably from person to person.
It is wrong to consider the problem of vaginismus as being unable to have sexual intercourse, contraction of sexual intercourse or difficult sexual intercourse.
Many findings should suggest vaginismus.
Vaginismus gives clues to people who have problems even without going to a doctor. In women with vaginismus symptoms, there is avoidance from all kinds of thoughts and behaviors about the vagina, genital organs and sexuality. Although masturbation attempt can be done, they cannot take any foreign body into a vaginal organ.
Most of the patients with vaginismus withdraw themselves from trying intercourse over the time and can completely get away from sexuality. Some of them prefer having satisfaction via superficial relation and friction. Penetration is not tried in any way.
The diagnosis of vaginismus can be made easily by the information given by the person and the couple and as a result of a simple gynecological evaluation. The reactions during sexual intercourse and the results of gynecological examination may result in the diagnosis of vaginismus.
Couples with vaginismus symptoms should receive sexual therapy. Otherwise, it becomes a permanent habit of sexual behavior and the problem becomes permanent for a lifetime.
When sexual intercourse cannot be achieved in spite of attempts, it decreases the motivation and allows to get away from sexuality. Person’s self-contraction, pushing her partner with her hand, crying, fear, the thought of having ache and even fainting are among uncontrolled and involuntary behaviors.
It is much more sensible to take immediate support from an experienced clinic instead of losing time by trying and waiting on your own, getting depressed and damaging the relationship. If you think that you have a complaint containing one or more symptoms above, it will be beneficial for you to recieve professional support.
