Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have severe pain when I insert my finger into the vagina and during penetration while having sexual intercourse. What could be the reason?

Kindly help.

Answered by Dr. Monica Mathur

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

You are having a vaginal spasm. In such cases, the muscles around your vulva and vagina are contracted, so anything inserted through your vagina receives resistance from your muscles. Such conditions usually occur due to stressful sexual intercourse or when you are not fully prepared for the act. Although, such conditions are usually treatable. I would suggest you take a test. You can insert two fingers inside your vagina even with resistance, then you have a normal development of your vagina, and the cause is confirmed. Kindly consult a specialist.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
