Vaginismus Treatment Options

The following are some common options for vaginismus treatment in Dubai:

Psychosexual therapy – It is a talking therapy that aims to change your understanding and feelings about sex.

Pelvic floor exercises – Such exercises help you gain control over your vaginal muscles. As you squeeze and release the vaginal muscles, their mobility improves, and you overcome vaginal penetration anxiety.

Vaginal Botox Injections – It is also a possible treatment option for vaginismus. Botox effectively treats pelvic muscle spasms and vaginismus by relaxing the spastic vaginal muscles that obstruct penetration.

How does Botox Injection Work?

Botox injection for vaginismus treatment is a simple non-surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. When Botox is injected into the vaginal muscles, it paralyzes them, thus preventing their contraction. As a result, the muscles relax, and you do not feel pain during intercourse. The effects of the Botox injections can be experienced within one to two weeks. You will feel maximum relief around four weeks after getting the injections.

Vaginismus Treatment Cost in Dubai

The cost of vaginismus treatment with Botox primarily depends on the number of Botox units being used, the expertise of the gynecologist, and the clinic’s location. The requirements of the patient also influence the overall cost. Therefore, to know the exact cost of vaginismus, you need to consult with our gynecologists. At Euromed Clinic Center, the average cost of vaginismus treatment starts from AED 6000.
