cases of vaginismus no local disease can be found, because genuine 

vaginismus is of nervous origin. 

 

_Dyspareunia_ means painful or difficult intercourse, from whatever 

cause. It differs from vaginismus in that the cause is generally a 

local one, that is, it may be inflammation, laceration as after a 

confinement, small size or atresia of the vagina, etc. When vaginismus 

is present, it is present in reference to all men, in fact the mere 

touch of the finger or an instrument may call forth a painful spasm; 

while dyspareunia may show itself with one man and be absent with 

another. The origin of the word dyspareunia shows that this may be 

the case, for _dyspareunos_ in Greek means badly mated. 

 

Dyspareunia must not be confused with true vaginismus. In dyspareunia 

the sexual act can be freely indulged in, only the act is painful or 

disagreeable. In vaginismus intercourse is _impossible_. In 

exceptional cases where the husband attempts to use brute force, the 

wife may faint away, she may get a convulsion or become wildly 

hysterical. If the husband insists in attempting relations, the wife 

may run away, or in exceptional cases even attempt suicide. 

 

 

ADHERENT CLITORIS OR PHIMOSIS 

 

The word phimosis means "muzzling," and it is a term applied to a 

constriction or narrowing of the foreskin, so that the glands of the 

clitoris cannot be freely uncovered. This condition may give rise to 

an accumulation of smegma or secretion which may cause inflammation, 

itching, and nervous irritation. This in its turn may be the cause of 

masturbation. It is claimed by some that an adherent clitoris may even 

be the cause of convulsions resembling epilepsy. In some cases it 

leads to an irritable bladder, inability to retain the urine, and 

nocturnal bed-wetting. 

 

In all girls, big or little, that show a tendency to masturbate or 

simply to handle the genitals, or that complain of itching, the 

clitoris should be examined and if adhesions are found they should be 

separated. This can easily be done under a local anesthetic.
