Vaginismus specialists

It is important to have a team of health care professionals who are well versed in the diagnosis and treatment of female sexual complaints when trying to locate a health care provider who can assist with the treatment of vaginismus.

Internal pelvic physical therapy and manipulation of the vaginal spasms is best addressed by pelvic floor therapists who has special credentials and certification attesting to his or her qualifications. Some newer experimental techniques including Botox injection into the tense pelvic muscles has been done by a handful of experienced gynecologists and urogynecologists with varying degrees of success.

Desensitizing with vaginal dilators combined with cognitive behavior therapy may be achieved with the assistance of a sexual medicine gynecologist and certified sexual therapist or counselor.

A good qualified therapist or counselor who specializes in sexual pain may be located at the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (www.isswsh.org) or American Association of Sexual Educators, Counselors and Therapists (www.aasect.org). The International Society for Sexual Medicine (www.issm.org ) is also an excellent resource.
