Abstract

(1) Background: To develop an instrument in Spanish to assess beliefs and feelings about vaginal penetration and assess its psychometric properties. (2) Methods: This study translated and adapted the Vaginal Penetration Cognition Questionnaire into Spanish, and a total of 225 women who suffered from Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration Disorder were included in the study. The psychometric properties, including construct, convergent and discriminant validity, test–retest reliability, and internal consistency of the translated version were assessed. (3) Results: The Spanish version of the Vaginal Penetration Cognition Questionnaire is a valid, reliable, and consistent tool to assess beliefs and thoughts about vaginal penetration in women suffering from Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration Disorder. The exploratory factor analysis yielded four domains that explained 62.5% of the variance. Convergent and discriminant validity was also confirmed. Test–retest reliability was high, with an intraclass correlation coefficient value of 0.90, a standard error of measurement of 4.21, and a minimal detectable change of 11.66 points. Every domain also showed good internal consistency levels, with Cronbach’s α values ranging from 0.84 to 0.89. (4) Conclusion: The Spanish version of the Vaginal Penetration Cognition Questionnaire is a valid, reliable, and consistent tool to assess vaginal penetration cognition in women suffering from Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration Disorder.
