Vaginismus is a condition where the vaginal muscles go into spasm, causing the vagina to feel tight and often making sexual intercourse impossible. This may be due to a number of reasons including fear and pain of penetration, gynecological surgery or trauma associated with childbirth. Dyspareunia can also inhibit sexual intercourse as it may cause pain and discomfort upon penetration. This is often assosciated with vaginal dryness or infection. Designed in conjunction with psychosexual therapists, Amielle Comfort offers an effective way for women to take an active role in the treatment of these and other conditions.
