Involuntary painful contraction of perineal muscles and levator ani prior to or during vaginal intercourse. The experience of or even the anticipation of pain on vaginal entry causes these muscles to contract, occluding the vaginal opening and causing further pain when penetration is attempted. Repeated dyspareunia (pain with intercourse) can cause vaginismus and vaginismus can cause dyspareunia.
