  • [Obstetric outcome of women with primary vaginismus]. [Multicenter Study]

  • CONCLUSIONS: The rates of labour dystocia and perineal morbidity were significantly high. These data were comparable to most of the data in the literature. It is likely that the psychological and behavioral aspects of vaginismus (fear-avoidance and anxiety-inducing mechanism) have favoured prolonged pregnancies, cesarean sections, mechanical dystocias and perineal injuries. Additional studies are necessary to better identify vaginismus and its obstetrical implications.
  • Prevalence of and Risk Factors for Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration Disorder: A Population-Based Study of Iranian Women. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Reliable diagnosis of GPPPD is crucial. Application of validated tools may mitigate the overestimation of GPPPD prevalence. Simultaneously, clinicians' judgment is essential in assessing a reasonable threshold and preventing underestimation that leads to the exclusion of women suffering from pain.Further research is needed to determine the appropriate threshold for a diagnosis of GPPPD. We suggest that a woman with mild to moderate pain or fear of vaginal penetration is under sexual distress and cannot be neglected. In addition, problems may arise following the DSM-5 merging of the 2 disorders of vaginismus and dyspareunia, owing to the significant prevalence and distress of lifelong vaginismus in some cultures.
