Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
Female genital mutilation (FGM) refers to the cutting of any part of the female genitalia for cultural, religious or non-medical reason. Like other pain causing conditions, FGM may cause or contribute to problems with vaginismus and/or may cause other barriers to achieving normal, pleasurable intercourse.
