YES natural lubricants are proven to overcome the physical symptoms of vaginismus
What Causes Vaginismus?
Vaginismus is a condition that affects a woman’s ability to engage in sexual intercourse, and as such can understandably be very distressing. In vaginismus, the pubococcygeus muscle involuntarily tenses, in a similar reflexive manner to someone flinching. The tensed muscle renders penetration difficult or even impossible. The causes of vaginismus are generally psychological, although there can also be physical instigators.

How to treat vaginismus?
Treatment for vaginismus seeks to identify the underlying emotional causes whilst also addressing the condition’s physical discomfort. In independent case studies, Yes has proven to be successful in remedying the physical difficulties associated with vaginismus.
Treatment of the physical symptoms of vaginismus relies on you becoming more accustomed to intimate touching, and eventually, penetration. Healthcare professionals will either recommend that you begin using vaginal dilators, or, if you are not comfortable with this, that you take the time to gently relax and explore yourself. Whichever of these methods proves to be the best for you, it is advisable that you choose an intimate lubricant to aid you in achieving penetration. However, many products on the market are unsuitable for such a delicate condition, due to their lubricating properties and their ingredients.
YES products offer a unique solution to vaginismus. A renowned Psychosexual therapist, Ruth Hallam Jones, devised an approach to the treatment of vaginismus using a combination of two YES products.
To provide the sufficiently long-lasting comfort and cushioning needed to allow the woman to relax and overcome the tightening reflex in her vagina, Ruth Hallam Jones applied first a layer of protective YES OB plant-oil based and then topped this with a layer of soft and silky YES WB water based. This combination of the two natural products conferred an experience of “Double Glideability”, giving the woman the confidence that penetration could be achieved without flinching or friction. Read our vaginismus case study to learn more about the double glide effect.
Double glide is the name which was given to the pioneering technique which has now been widely adopted in the successful treatment of vaginismus.
In response to the popularity and therapeutic benefits of Double Glide, we have created YES DG, which brings together YES WB in a 100ml tube, and YES OB in an 80ml tube, in a convenient and economic combination pack.
How YES lubricants can help with vaginismus
YES lubricants are guaranteed pure through their organic certification and contain no potentially harmful chemical ingredients. YES’ unique plant-based formulations protect and lubricate intimate tissues during intercourse, and unlike synthetic, glycerine-based products, will not leave a sticky residue behind after use.
YES provides long lasting natural lubrication for use with vaginal dilators. The balanced pH formulation helps to restore and maintain the typical vaginal environment providing gentle relief from dryness irritation and discomfort during intercourse.
Trudy Hannington – Psychosexual and relationship therapist and former chair of COSRT (College of Sex & Relationship Therapists) recommends using the YES Double Glide technique:
“I have worked with hundreds of women with vaginismus and the challenge is to break the cycle of pain and fear of pain. I introduce YES, and in particular the double glide technique of YES water based applied over YES oil based to my clients. By helping the vagina and the entrance to the vagina to feel naturally lubricated, they are able to relax, leading to more arousal, which then improves desire resulting in pain-free sex. The vicious circle can then become a virtuous circle. The feedback from my clients using YES products is always excellent but the DG Double Glide is the most effective.”

“Your product is amazing, truly! I know that many of the testimonials have already said this but it has saved what was a previously horrendous sex life – meaning I did not want sex EVER as it was far too painful to endure…which my husband interpreted as me not wanting to have sex with him EVER again. The intimacy in our relationship really went through the ringer and for two years we limped along with lots of resentment and hurt on both sides. I finally went to the Doctors and discovered that I was/am still going through peri menopause at the moment resulting in a very dry vagina which then often brought terrible bouts of bladder infections. Now after three months or so of using your product, we are thoroughly enjoying an amazing sex life. I want to have sex and I want to enjoy being intimate with my hubby. Honestly, my vagina now feels like it felt when I was 20 years old, well lubricated and ready for great sex! I have told me Doctor about your product and the remarkable affect it has had on my hubby and I, she is now recommending Yes lubricants to other patients! you, Thank you, thank you for developing such a great lubricant well done!”
“YES is literally amazing! I have Vaginismus and Vulvodynia and I thought that was it – I’d never have sex again and when first diagnosed at 23, I was so depressed, but this stuff has changed my life – I can’t thank you enough!”
“Your product cured my Vaginismus – the burning and pain are no more. Thank you for saving my relationship with my husband. Unbelievably effective! I’d say my intercourse pain went from 90% to 5%.”
