Vaginismus Awareness Day

Updated: Mar 23, 2022

September 15th is Vaginismus Awareness Day. Vaginismus affects 1 in every 500 women in their lifetime.

This one is close to my heart. It was one of my first diagnoses and one that took many, many years of numbing gels, muscle relaxers, dilators, biofeedback, physical therapists, and surgical procedures to resolve.

Between 30% to 57% of women with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS-HT) experience painful intercourse.

Since the pelvic floor is the base of the core muscles, a lack of stability in the deep core muscles can cause the pelvic floor muscles to tighten and become overused.

Please share to raise awareness.
