Thank you for posting this, Kiala. Definitely something to think about! This study seems to suggest that vaginismus is actually caused by REAL pain in a large group of patients, which blends to “fear of having pain” (and vaginismus) after a while That sounds logical! A difficult first sex experience, a painful internal exam, pain during tampon usage… instead of thinking it’s vaginismus that causes these issues, those events ITSELF might actually have caused vaginismus!
