Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

The difficulty to insert penis can be due to tight vaginal walls. Tightening of vaginal wall is called vaginismus. A tight vaginal wall can be due to various reasons. This can be primary and mainly due to anxiety. Yes, this can be made more lax by increasing the foreplay, having confidence in your partner and using vaginal dilators. The dilators can be used as home or at the gynecologist. If you want to use at home, you will have to learn the technique from the gynecologist. With gradual dilatation, the vagina becomes lax enough to accommodate the penis without pain. Generally both partners are counseled to gradually increase more intimate contact, ultimately resulting in intercourse.

Tight vaginal wall can also be secondary. Usually it is due to vaginal dryness. Other causes for secondary vaginismus are vaginitis or inflammation of vagina, sores at the mouth of vagina or vestibulitis, vulvodynia, or thrush or fungal infection. Treating the cause often takes care of the problem. You will need to consult a gynecologist to determine the cause. Hope this helps. Take care!
