See a Gynecologist.: Your doctor will need a thorough medical history for medical conditions, past surgeries, sexual history/partners, stressors.
You will also have a Physical exam including a Pelvic exam to look for any obvious anatomic causes.
Treatment options for Vaginismus are Physical therapy for Pelvic floor exercises, Vaginal dilators, CBT, Sex therapy.
No need to be nervous or embarrassed. See your Doctor!
