Breaking the Stigma: Vaginismus in the Media

May 01, 2023

Vaginismus is a condition that affects millions of women worldwide, yet it's rarely talked about in public. It's a condition that can cause significant physical and emotional distress, leading to a decrease in sexual function and intimacy. Recently, Meghan Trainor made headlines when she opened up about her struggle with vaginismus. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at vaginismus.

Vaginismus is a condition where the muscles around the vagina involuntarily tighten, making sexual intercourse or even inserting a tampon painful or impossible. At Renew Health, we often see folks who have routinely cancelled or avoided gynecological exams due to severe discomfort. It's a condition that can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life and relationships. Many women feel like they're alone in their struggle, as the condition is often stigmatized or misunderstood.

Meghan Trainor, the Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, recently revealed her own struggles with vaginismus. She opened up about her experiences during an interview stating that she thought that every woman walking around was always in pain during and after sex. Her bravery in speaking out about her experiences can help to destigmatize the condition and encourage others to seek help. 

If you're struggling with vaginismus, it's important to know that you're not alone. There are many treatment options available, including pelvic floor physical therapy. There's  hope for a better, more fulfilling life with the right care. 

At Renew Health, pelvic health is all we do.
