Vaginismus (Unusual Vaginal Tightness)
What is Vaginismus?
Vaginismus is a condition in which penetration or attempted penetration of the vaginal canal results in involuntary contraction of the pelvic floor muscles around the vagina, resulting in pain and discomfort. These painful pelvic muscle spasms that occur are unintentional and women may be completely unaware altogether that this is happening.

Under-diagnosed & under-reported female sexual problem
Women with vaginismus may find sexual intercourse or other activities like undergoing a pelvic examination in clinic difficult or completely impossible. The severity of vaginismus is a spectrum which varies between individuals. Most women affected may also experience a degree of fear and anxiety associated with the thought of penetration.
Vaginismus is a fairly common, likely under-diagnosed and under-reported female sexual problem which can occur to any woman. Women with vaginismus may feel alone or ashamed about their problem and hesitate to seek treatment, as they do not realise they have a very treatable medical problem.
Our clinics offer treatment for vaginismus in a stress-free and encouraging environment with female doctors, through a combination of the use of vaginal dilators and pelvic floor exercises and psychosocial interventions.
We provide a private and discreet environment for you to discuss your medical issues with our female doctors at our Bencoolen Branch, Scotts Branch and Robertson Branch.
