- How many women have vaginismus? How prevalent is it?
As leaders in the field, we are eager to address these typical questions and hope that you will find this information valuable in your own quest for answers:
- Is there an effective treatment*?
Our statistical analysis shows that 95% of our vaginismus patients completed the process undergoing the DiRoss Methodologysm, a well-defined body-mind intervention. The 5% that did not complete the process include women who never returned past the introductory appointment due to fear of being touched, women who couldn’t afford the treatment, women who relocated, and a few women whose husbands denied them the option of treatment (victims of domestic violence).
- Will vaginismus come back*?
The treatment process resolves the vaginismus as long as the woman follows the prescribed discharge instructions.
- What is the average length of vaginismus treatment?
(The following are statistical averages and should not be taken as absolute numbers!)
for those who live close enough to be treated once or twice weekly.
for those who come for the 2-week program.
This process requires more time because of its concentrated, intense nature.
- What is the typical family status of the patient?
40% are single or in a relationship
60% are married
- How old is the typical patient?
23% are under the age of 25
54% between the ages of 26-35
19% between the ages of 36-50
4% are over the age of 51
- Do educated women suffer from it too?
The condition is shared by women across all cultures, religious affiliations, educational levels, or intelligence. Of our patients,79% are college graduates/professionals
8% are students (entry level to doctoral degrees)
13% are homemakers
- Is abuse the most common cause for?
Not at all. Only 22% of our inquiries experienced abuse, may it be verbal, emotional, physical, sexual or rape.
- How prevalent is it? I never heard of it before…
Unfortunately, vaginismus continues to be a hidden problem, suffered in silence, and often missed by healthcare professionals. Consequently, actual numbers of sufferers are hard to come by. That said, we have been treating vaginismus full-time since 1996, and have been responding to as many inquiries by women who cannot get to us. Additionally, we have seen Internet search results for this condition grow from one result (us, back in the day…) to 947,000 at time of this update (April 2014), which strongly suggests that it is a common problem!
