You Don't Have to Suffer with Vaginismus Anymore
If you've been diagnosed with vaginismus (or suspect you have it), you've likely had a frustrating, confusing or sometimes traumatizing time getting answers. You may have noticed issues inserting tampons, difficulty with gynecological exams or pain (or inability) with intercourse. Whether it's been going on for months, years, or decades you may have given up hope for pain-free sexual activity or insertion. But with pelvic PT you can get to the root cause of why this is happening.
The root cause of vaginismus or pain with intercourse is almost always found within the pelvic floor. Tight muscles clench and make insertion painful or impossible. Sometimes it feels like 'hitting a wall.' Unless the pelvic floor is addressed, it's often impossible to have pain-free intercourse or insertion.
We want to help you find lasting relief from vaginismus or pain with sexual activity. Our expert pelvic health team specializes exclusively in these difficult-to-treat conditions so you know you're getting the best care. We also work in a safe, calm environment where you'll be in control of every step of your care to feel comfortable throughout.
Not only do we want to relieve your symptoms, but resolve the underlying 'why' so they don't return. We've helped thousands of patients with vaginismus, vulvodynia, vestibulodynia or other pelvic pain from Orange County and all over the world; we'd love to help you find lasting relief and feel confident in your body again!
Give us a call - you'll speak with a real human, get your questions answered and we can get you started on your road to pelvic sanity!

What is Vaginismus?
Vaginismus is a tightness or clenching of the muscles of the pelvic floor that either makes penetration (tampon, speculum, or intercourse) painful or impossible.
What causes Vaginismus?
The immediate cause is tight muscles of the pelvic floor, but vaginismus is also linked to a history of trauma, acute injury or other factors as well.
What are some other signs of pelvic floor dysfunction?
Many patients diagnosed with vaginismus or painful intercourse also have associated issues like low back pain, hip or groin pain, urinary urgency/frequency or urinary incontinence, among other common pelvic floor issues.
How does pelvic physical therapy resolve vaginismus symptoms?
Your pelvic PT will work with you to resolve the tightness in the pelvic floor muscles causing the vaginismus, but should also get to the underlying 'why' for true, lasting relief. Once those muscles begin functioning normally and stop irritating the nerves, you can be confident with pain-free insertion!
I've been to many other practitioners....what makes PelvicSanity different?
The vast majority of our patients with vaginismus or pelvic pain have been to multiple other practitioners before finding relief with PelvicSanity. We specialize exclusively in these complex cases, we take a true head-to-toe approach and we look for the underlying "why" of what is going on.
Other practitioners might see one or two patients with this diagnosis a year - we see that each day. Our mission is to help patients with complex conditions find true, lasting relief in a safe, supportive environment.
If you'd like to learn more or get started, make sure to give us a call or fill out a contact form! You'll speak with a real human (not an answering machine), get your questions answered, and finally get expert help!

8 Reasons to Choose PelvicSanity For Your Vaginismus Care
There's a wide range of experience and expertise when it comes to pelvic health. More than 70% of our patients have been to other pelvic health facilities before finding relief here at PelvicSanity. We don't want anyone saying "pelvic PT didn't work for me" or turning to a lifetime of medications or unnecessary surgery.
1. You Deserve a True Specialist
Pelvic health issues are complex and you deserve expert care. At PelvicSanity, you'll work with a specialist who has dedicated their career solely to pelvic health. We've seen the most complex cases from all over the world. You'll never see someone 'dabbling' part-time in pelvic health or who has taken a single weekend course.
2. Get the Most from Your Sessions
We believe hour-long, 1:1 sessions with a specialist are the gold standard. You'll always be seen for a full session, and never shuffled off to an 'aide', watched as you exercise or just hooked to a machine.
3. Discover Your 'Why' For Lasting Relief
It's not enough to treat symptoms for temporary help. We want to help you find lasting relief by discovering the root cause of symptoms, so they won't continue to come back. You'll work through the 4 Phases of Treatment at PelvicSanity, and not just 'chase your symptoms.'
4. You Need More than 'Just Kegel'
A whole body approach is necessary for true, lasting relief. We'll look head-to-toe and beyond just the pelvic floor to understand the entire system. You will never have only the pelvic floor treated or just have you 'Kegel' (you usually need the exact opposite!).
5. Calm Environment for Healing
From ample parking to quiet, private treatment rooms, our facility works exclusively with patients like you. You won't be hearing high school kids grunting as they exercise right outside the door, struggle with parking or have to enter a hospital facility for each visit.
