Hi Lulu1802,

I do see patients complain of both constipation and vaginismus secondary to pelvic floor hypertonicity.

The muscles of the pelvic floor support many organs and structures. So when they are chronically tense, we can see bowel, bladder and gynecological issues.

If you haven’t tried physical therapy, I would strongly recommend that you seek out a pelvic floor PT to help you.

Diazepam suppositories might also be helpful.

There is an online program called PelvicSense that is created by a PT that is also really great.
