Question
Hi Doctor,

Could you inform me on vaginismus treatment options in Bangalore - where I could consult a good doctor/hospital in this context.

I read about the vaginismus treatment kit in an internet site - unfortunately, I could place an order for this in WWW.WWWW.WW

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks.

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for using the XXXXXXX I am happy to address your questions, vaginal tightness causing discomfort, burning, pain, penetration problems, or complete inability to have intercourse. Effective treatment approaches combine pelvic floor control exercises, insertion or dilation training, pain elimination techniques, transition steps, and exercises designed to help women identify, express and resolve any contributing emotional components. It has to be treated by a psychiatrist (Department of Psychiatry, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Hosur Road, Bangalore). Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

Would like to know if any psychiatrist in NIMHANS, Bangalore would be able to help with the pelvic floor control exercises, insertion or dilation training, and pain elimination techniques. Would you like to suggest any specific psychiatrist?

Also, would like to know if a gynecologist would be able to help on the above mentioned techniques to overcome vaginismus. Could you suggest any specific gynecologist in Manipal Hospital or Cloud Nine (Cradle), Bangalore?

I read about a vaginismus treatment kit in internet but could not place an order for this in WWW.WWWW.WW Would like to know if a treatment kit is available in India and how/where we can get access to such a kit from Bangalore?

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query, vaginismus has to be treated by a psychatrist more than a gynaecologist but however if you will be more comfortable with a gynaecologist you could visit DR XXXXXXX of XXXXXXX Banashankari (as I am not from bangalore not aware from Manipal Hospital but you can enquire for the same). At Nimhans there is Dr Thippeswamy XXXXXXX Dr KrishnaPrasad Muliyala, Dr XXXXXXX XXXXXXX who have conducted successful management of vaginismus through an eclectic approach (also published various articles and check with them for the treatment Kits as well). If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health
