According to a Plastic Surgeon from New Hampshire, Dr. Peter T. Pacik, Botox has been found to be helpful in women who face painful vaginal conditions, specifically for those who suffer from a burning sensation in their vagina or constrict their muscles during intercourse. Statistical reports say that about 6% people across the world face such situations due to their rigid upbringing or sexual abuse in their past life. Such women have problem in consummation as they experience involuntary spasms of the vaginal muscles.

Dr. Pacik used Botulinum Toxin A, the active ingredient in drugs like Botox or Dysport, in a similar manner as it is used on the face. He injected a small amount of the drug at the entrance of the vagina. The medicine interrupts the nerve impulses and allows the muscles to relax. Post injection, several women felt relaxed and have been successful in having sex with their partners.
