Our expert says:
From what you are describing your wife might be suffering from a condition we call – Vaginismis. The PC muscles (the muscles involved with contracting and relaxing during sex goes into a kind of a spasm) contracting so tightly that it makes it almost impossible to penetrate and usually causes a lot of pain. It is advisable to seek the professional advice from a medical practitioner/ psychologist that specifically works in the field of sexual health. It is imperative to address the matter as soon as possible as the longer you wait the more difficult it might become to address and unnecessarily emotional psychological pain could have been prevented.
