Struggling to have sex without pain and discomfort
June 4, 2022
Since I was in college, I have been struggling to have sex without pain and discomfort and I stopped trying after 2 years. As a woman, I didn’t know who I could turn to, and I didn’t know why this was happening - it affected my mental health a lot. This year I decided to consult with a doctor to learn what may be the cause. During my consultation with Dr Sidharth, I learned that I had Vaginismus. He explained to me that this was psychological concern, and suggested that I do certain exercises and use a lubricant. I was hesitant to try anything after my first consultation, but after two follow-ups I had the confidence to try again. I am so relieved to say that for the first time, I was able to experience sex without any pain or discomfort.
