For those Who've been raped or Emotionally Wounded

I found these two sites to be of MOST importance. Many women who have these types of experiences, just deal with the consequences. Some have minimal experiences of sex because of it but truly want to connect more frequently and longer. Here is some information for the ladies, who need a little extra support!

"Unlike other sexual function disorders, Vaginismus is one of the many sexual function conditions in women that is highly treatable and can be successfully resolved with proper treatment. A treatment program is usually designed by a certified therapist based upon the problems and needs of a woman. The common methods of treatment included in the program are the following: Since 90% of Vaginismus is due to different psychological issues, psychotherapy helps women understand their condition. This method lets them express their fears, emotions, and relationship issues with their partners. Psychotherapy is considered the most important part of the program as it helps both the therapist and client fully understand the most probable cause of the problem. Relaxation Techniques – These are methods composed of different relaxation exercises that will help the woman feel calm and relax. The aim of these methods is to allow her let go of emotions that may prevent her from having successful intercourse with her partner. Sexual Anatomy – This method of the treatment program allows women to understand their feminine sexual anatomy better. The therapist explains how the different areas of the vaginal and pelvic floor muscles may cause pain and penile penetration difficulties. The method also involves thorough explanations on how these parts of women may undergo involuntary tightening. Insertion and Penetration Exercises – The therapist teaches different techniques that will help relax the pelvic floor muscles. These techniques help women have full control over their sexual anatomy, thereby preventing involuntary tightness and allowing pain-free insertion and full penetration. Vaginal dilators are also use to desensitize the pelvic floor muscles. These reduce the reflexes that may trigger the muscles to tighten and cause painful sensations. Readiness Exercises for Couples – To successfully resolve Vaginismus, the couple need to work together. These exercises are composed of different exercises and techniques that were designed for couples in order to relieve the involuntary tightening of the pelvic floor muscles and have pain-free penetration during intercourse. The sex therapist also helps built intimacy, trust, and cooperation between partners. Women who frequently experience vaginal discomfort during intercourse, such as pain and burning sensations, are probably suffering from the condition known as Vaginismus. Vaginismus is the result of involuntary tightening of the vaginal walls, making penetration during intercourse difficult or even impossible. This is usually manifested by the following symptoms: "Pain due to tightening of the vagina during intercourse Painful sensation during insertion of the penis/ failure to achieve penile penetration due to pain. Difficulty having a gynecological exam involving the vagina performed Sexual pain and discomforts after giving birth or undergoing a surgical procedure involving the female reproductive system Lack of interest to engage in sex due to pain Vaginismus can either be due to psychological or physical causes. Psychological causes- almost 90% of women suffering from Vaginismus have one or more of the following psychological issues: Fear of getting pregnant Performance anxiety related to intercourse Traumatic sexual experiences in the past Childhood memories of sexual abuse Poor emotional attachment between partners Lack of knowledge regarding sex Physical causes 10% of Vaginismus in women is due to the following physical causes: Infections involving the female reproductive system Difficult normal vaginal deliveries; complicated c-sections& Physical, sexual abuse, harassment, or rape Hormonal imbalance resulting to vaginal dryness  Increasing age (menopausal stage) resulting to poor vaginal lubrication Pelvic pain from trauma or previous surgery.
