Botox may Help Women who Experience Discomfort or Pain During Sex


Yes, you read the right botox the injection that plastic surgeons inject into many women’s faces to rid them of the visual aging process by removing the unwanted wrinkles, creases and crows feet.

Botox for Sex

The newest use for botox(botulinum Toxin A), the active ingredient in drugs such as Botox or Dysport, is to help ease painful vaginal conditions that plague women with unbearable burning sensations or constrict their muscles so tightly that makes sex all but impossible for some women.


Vaginismus is a condition where there is involuntary tightness of the vagina during attempted intercourse. The tightness is actually caused by involuntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles surrounding the vagina. The woman does not directly control or 'will' the tightness to occur; it is an involuntary pelvic response. She may not even have any awareness that the muscle response is causing the tightness or penetration problem.

How Botox may Help

The injection is made into the muscles at the entrance of the vagina. The botox helps the muscles to relax allowing for penetration. Out of seventy-eight, patients who were treated with the botox injection seventy-seven of them were cured after one injection. The injection takes about two weeks to work and costs roughly six thousand dollars for the one injection.
