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.
Dr. Pacik is conducting a FDA-approved clinical trial for testing Botox in
severe cases of vaginismus. So far the doctor has successfully treated
78patients within a single session.
