To understand the causes of anxiety over sexuality, and learn how to conquer this, Health Shots reached out to Dr. Lavanya Kiran, Senior Consultant Obstetrician and Gynecologist, and Reproductive Medicine Specialist at Cloudnine Group of Hospitals, Bengaluru, Electronic City.

Only a small percentage of women report experiencing sexual anxiety or sexual performance anxiety, according to Dr. Kiran. We’ve all heard that sexual anxiety can trigger issues like Erectile dysfunction as well as early ejaculation for men but did you know it can also be the cause of the condition called vaginismus among women? Vaginismus can cause the vaginal muscles to contract and tighten because of the fear of sexual penetration.

Be concerned about pain when you sexual activity

It’s a natural instinct to stay clear of any activity in bed if you believe it’s likely to be painful, particularly when it’s your first experience and you’re not certain what to anticipate. In this regard, Dr. Kiran suggests “Don’t engage in penetrative sexual sex. It is advisable to increase your play.”

Foreplay gives you the opportunity to get to know yourself and your partner more. It allows both of you the chance to become familiar with each other. This allows you to be sexually stimulated. If a woman gets in a state of excitement by her sexual glands, they release natural lubricants, and the vagina expands to prevent any discomfort during the intercourse. We’ve gathered exact figures to help put your mind at peace. When a woman does not at all aroused, her genitals are approximately 2-4 inches long. Arousal can cause it to expand by 4-8 inches.
