Abstract :

Although the prevalence of vaginism is difficult to estimate, this sexual dysfunction affects about 1% of women of reproductive age. Despite the difficulties they may encounter, these women have childish desires and manage to become pregnant. The first prenatal consultation is very often their first and only experience in gynecological follow-up. The analysis of the results of a study of 20 patients diagnosed with vaginism, collected in the emergency department of the maternity and neonatology center of Tunis, from October 2016 to March 2017 in the form of policy interviews allows us to understand the patients' experiences. The average age was 25.6 years. Vaginism was classified as primary in 75% of cases. The rigid family environment or strict education was the most frequent characteristic of our patients (70%). All the women studied (100%) reported the notion of pain during the first sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse is incomplete in 90% of cases. The repercussion on the couple was represented essentially by: a perturbation of the couple's relational life. 65% of the patients had a spontaneous pregnancy due to incomplete sex, ejaculation at the entrance of the vagina without penetration. Vaginismus was an indication to caesarean section in 15 cases (75%). In conclusion, pregnant women suffering from vaginism must benefit in the future from appropriate care by competent professionals to program the pregnancy that can be quite spontaneous.
