As previously mentioned, on her podcast Workin’ On It, which she co-hosts with her brother, Meghan opened up about her struggle with vaginismus.

The singer shared details of her sex life.

A specialist diagnosed her with this condition. Somehow, she had normalized the situation, thinking it was due to her husband’s penis size.

Vaginismus is an involuntary contraction of the muscles around the vagina.

According to Medline Plus, these spasms make the vagina very narrow and can prevent sexual activity and medical examinations.

It can be caused by past sexual trauma or abuse and mental health factors.

It is also a response that develops to physical pain during sex, which is the case for Meghan Trainor.

What are the symptoms?

Women with vaginismus may experience a variety of symptoms.

One is that vaginal penetration is difficult or very painful.

Additionally, there is pain in the vagina during sex or when undergoing a pelvic exam.

It is still possible for a woman with this condition to reach orgasm, as long as the clitoris is stimulated.

Can vaginismus be treated?

According to Medline Plus, treating vaginismus requires a healthcare team, including a gynecologist, physical therapist and sex counselor.

Combining physical therapy and education with counseling and exercises for contracting and relaxing the pelvic muscles is necessary.

Additionally, injections to relax the vaginal muscles are recommended.

Your partner can get involved in the therapy, and gradually women can start having sex without pain.
