If you can't insert a cup

I've noticed that lately there have been a few women posting who just have not been able to get a cup in at all. So I thought it might be worth posting a few links with information about vaginismus, a condition that could possibly cause such problems, in their own post rather than replying to several comments with the same information.

Vaginismus entry on Wikipedia.
Scarleteen article on vaginismus.
Vaginal dilators, which can be used to treat vaginismus.
The same set of dilators, with more information.
