Vaginismus is the term used when there is an involuntary contraction of the vaginal muscles in a woman whenever the partner tries penetration. It is seen in 5 to 17 % of patients and is believed to be one of the most prevalent sexual dysfunctions in women. Vaginismus can prevent sexual activity or make it painful; and can come in the way of the couple trying to get the baby.

Vaginismus can not only happen during sexual activity but also can happen when a woman tries to insert a tampon or a woman is touched near the vaginal area.

Though vaginismus does not interfere with arousal; it can prevent penetration. Though having vaginismus is no fault of yours; it can interfere with relationships and affect the quality of life.
