Botulinum toxin for vaginismus

Vaginismus is an autonomous reaction which is expressed by an involuntary tightening of the muscles of the vagina and the pelvic floor.


It is provoked by an attempt to enter or insert an object (e.g. tampon) in the vagina.


The reaction is practically an reflex and it cannot be controlled voluntarily.


Vaginismus is a condition that significantly deteriorates the quality of life and requires precise and professional treatment approach. 

Botulinum toxin for vaginismus

Primary vaginismus occurs during the first attempt of sexual intercourse or insertion of an object in the vagina.


Symptoms may range from mild to generalized spasm of the muscles of the pelvis or whole body, which passes immediately after stopping the attempts of penetration.


Secondary vaginismus occurs secondarily after the patient has already had desired and problem-free sexual intercourse in the past. The condition can occur at any time in life and may not manifest itself with every attempt at intercourse. It is usually seen after childbirth or around menopause. False vaginismus is a clinical manifestation of another underlying disease - atrophic vaginitis, severe inflammation of the vagina, lichen sclerosus, physical trauma in the vagina, etc. In these cases, the symptoms are provoked by the associated pain and discomfort.


Treatment of vaginismus is completely possible, and the first step is to seek professional help. Depending on the primary cause, a complex approach is usually used, including a consultation with a specialist in aesthetic gynecology, a clinical psychologist and a sexologist.


In selected cases with secondary vaginismus, injection of botulinum toxin into the vagina by a specialist in aesthetic gynecology may be discussed.
