Vulvodynia and vaginismus are two conditions that cause painful vaginal penetration.
Vulvodynia is hypersensitivity of the vulvar tissue to touch and vaginismus is the painful spasm of vaginal muscles during manipulation or penetration of the vagina.
Treatment of each condition requires first and foremost the proper diagnosis and the source of the pain has to be identified and treated. Many times an incorrect diagnosis results in years of pain and reduced quality of life.
