Today I want to address those of you who might be experiencing issues with intercourse. This is for females and/or their partners who are trying to achieve penetration but it feels like there’s a block and can’t get any further during intercourse. Often, there is even difficulty with insertion during a gynecology exam or pap smear.

What is causing this block?

This is a potentially classic case of something called Vaginismus. Vaginismus is basically a spasming of the muscles in your vagina. These muscles, just like any other muscle, can contract and relax. Sometimes these muscles can become spasmed and tight and can make insertion difficult.

The muscles of the pelvic floor line the bowl of the pelvis. When these muscles spasm, it makes the holes of the vagina and rectum smaller and make it difficult for anything to enter. This is why you might be having trouble with your partner entering inside of you or getting a speculum in for a gynecological exam.

Treatment

If you’ve seen your gynecologist and they’ve ruled everything out, vaginismus is likely the culprit. These muscles need to be worked on and released by a holistic pelvic floor physical therapist.
