I am so glad you posted LonelyTears because you are so not alone as Jennifer already mentioned! Many women who come to see us at Maze experience what you are talking about when it comes to touching/exploring our vulva/vaginas. Learning to be comfortable and feel safe in your body (especially when there’s been pain) is a process and can certainly be worked on. It sounds like you have made strides when it comes to partnered sex. Your body can learn to “relax” once you learn to interrupt the cycle of anxiety. Grounding exercises can be very helpful. It’s okay to ask for help! You can do this.
