Vaginismus affects many women and can cause a great deal of suffering. Women often remain untreated for years, and many clinicians and therapists are unclear how to best treat vaginismus. There has been significant controversy over both the definition and diagnosis of vaginismus. This condition generally involves a muscular contraction or spasm in the vagina prohibiting any type of penetration; however, in some cases, there is little muscular contraction and vaginal penetration is avoided primarily due to fear.
