It was a beautiful wedding ceremony, Donald had everything sorted out with the aid of a pro wedding planner, all because he didn’t want to put his bride through any form of stress. The exchange of vows in the presence of friends and families and of course God went smoothly, the reception ceremony was a really colorful one, it was glamour all over, mouthwatering dishes served here and there, and it was indeed a BellaNaija news catching type. Chioma really was swept off her feet when the keys to a brand new wine Range Rover Evoque was presented to her by Donald just immediately after the reception, it was indeed an enviable wedding experience for all feminine species present, both single and married.
Having had no carnal knowledge of each other, expectation was very high as per the nuptial night; wild thoughts ran through their minds as they sat almost on top of each other in the plane, headed for the honeymoon destination. They arrived safely; reservations had been made by Donald one week ago in a decent 5-star hotel, a cozy room with balcony facing the waterfront, giving a good view of the ocean body.
Things happened very fast, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about here, two lovers locked up safely together in a distant land, having recently obtained the license to consummate their relationship. It would have easily been a memorable day but for the inability of Chioma to tolerate her lover…it was pain all through for her, and of course no pleasure for Donald as well. It was indeed a night to forget. In a bid to do that, they gave several reasons for the disappointment-anxiety, fatigue, being the first time e.t.c.
They however had the same experience all through their honeymoon and even persisted into the second month of their wedding before they decided to seek help; of course they landed in my clinic. After detailed history and thorough examination, an assessment of Vaginismus was made.
This leads us to the topic-painful sexual intercourse, medically known as dyspareunia. A leading cause of dyspareunia is vaginismus. Vaginismus, though a cause of strain in relationships is underdiagnosed/unattended, and that is why I am taking time to write this short piece. Vaginismus occurs in ladies, men however have roles to play in overcoming this challenge. It is noteworthy to say, all dyspareunia is not necessarily vaginismus, but all vaginismus would cause dyspareunia.
For the purpose of this discussion, we would limit ourselves to vaginismus
