Vaginismus is a condition that is generally thought to affect every 2 in 1,000 women. However, it's hard to know for sure because many women are too ashamed or scared to seek treatment, or are misdiagnosed when they do.
In medical terms, vaginismus is the involuntary tightening of muscles around the vagina whenever penetration is attempted.
In our terms, vaginismus is a million things. It has impacted massively on our lives - not just in the bedroom. It's complex. It's not black and white. We strongly believe that every woman living with vaginismus has a unique experience and it's not a case of 'one size fits all'.
