A Fresh Take On Vaginismus
Clinical Psychology + Modern Pain Science
Vaginismus is said to be a “spasm” of the outer third of the vagina that makes penetrative sex, tampon use, and gynecological examination impossible. This shocking condition is one of the most complex and misunderstood “psychosomatic” disorders in existence.
Filtered through the lens of modern pain science and my own 20-year lived experience, my upcoming book explores the emerging sex research into both vaginismus and provoked vestibulodynia to offer a gentle reconceptualization of these surprisingly common conditions.
