Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

Hello agian :)

Last week I went to a sexual health clinic, she couldnt pin point what was wrong with me but had a few things in mind so she sent me off to have a internal and pelvic U/S I went back for a follow up yesterday and it came back with only that a have large ovaries but no outstanding cysts (due to PCOS) Therefore she said that there is nothing wrong with the U/S and that she would like to do a quick internal, she did and has now decided that I have Vaginismus which is...

Vaginismus is a condition where there is involuntary tightness of the vagina during attempted intercourse. The tightness is actually caused by involuntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles surrounding the vagina. The woman does not directly control or 'will' the tightness to occur; it is an involuntary pelvic response. She may not even have any awareness that the muscle response is causing the tightness or penetration problem.

In some cases vaginismus tightness may begin to cause burning, pain, or stinging during intercourse. In other cases, penetration may be difficult or completely impossible. Vaginismus is the main cause of unconsummated relationships. The tightness can be so restrictive that the opening to the vagina is 'closed off' altogether and the man is unable to insert his penis. The pain of vaginismus ends when the sexual attempt stops, and usually intercourse must be halted due to pain or discomfort.

For me this does not explain all the symptoms that I have been happning but otherwise I think this is spot on. I will head back to a diff doctor to try and get to the bottom of the other symptoms.

I hope this helps someone else with the same symptoms.
