Finding a vaginismus solution is a very personal journey.
Choose a Natural Lube for Vaginismus Treatment Support
Vaginismus treatment is hardly straight-forward due to the complexity of the condition. Vaginismus may only affect the outer layer of muscles, or the deep layer of pelvic floor muscles as well. Tightness can be there all the time or just when your intimate area is touched.
Researchers aren’t quite sure why it happens, but it can be caused by psychological issues (such as fear of pain during sex) and physical causes (like a dysfunctional pelvic floor), or the first leading to the latter. It’s important to first eliminate structural conditions and ideally starting vaginismus treatment before it becomes chronic. Finding a vaginismus solution is a very personal journey for every woman/couple.
Practitioners who offer vaginismus treatment can include (but are not limited to):
- EFT practitioners who help you deal with old thoughts & stuck patterns
- Pelvic physiotherapists
- Osteopaths (if possible, specialising in pelvic dysfunction) who help find out what is causing tension
- Yoni massage therapists who help loosen tissues
- Experienced psychologists/counsellors
- Meditation centres where you can learn to relax & open up
Whichever option is right for you, having a comprehensive assessment is the first step to finding a vaginismus solution and recover.
How does lubricant become part of a vaginismus treatment?
In order to become more accustomed to intimate touching and, down the line, penetration, healthcare professionals recommend taking time to gently relax and explore yourself and, if you are comfortable with this, using vaginal dilators. For this physical vaginismus treatment, you should use a personal lubricant. Many leading lubricants are not suitable for such a delicate condition due to their lubricating properties and ingredients.
YES organic lubricants, on the other hand, are different. Guaranteed pure, they don’t add the additional stress factor of having to worry about what harmful chemicals you might be exposing yourself to. YES’ unique formulations lubricate and protect intimate tissues and are safe to use with vaginal dilators. In independent case studies, using plenty of YES lubricant has been proven to be successful in remedying the physical difficulties associated with vaginismus.
