CONGRATULATIONS on deciding to start treatment. It’s almost like what people say about going to the gym or going on a run, “the hardest part is getting yourself out the door” or something like that. Choosing to start treatment and taking that first step is SO difficult, but it really gets so much easier. Even though my first several appointments at Maze (using dilators) were very very stressful and I had moments of doubt that I could do it, little milestone “wins” like being able to use tampons comfortably, moving up in dilator size, etc. made it all worth it and made things SO much easier.

So I really really related to this! recessivegenequeen’s response hit the nail on the head with regards to being able to feel like a “normal woman” in relationships. Going through treatment is SO worth it for just that weight off your shoulders of worrying about sex/penetration/being “normal.”

The “it’s going to take work and I’m afraid of failing” is something I’ve definitely felt before and understand. But vaginismus is so treatable and really just takes some time and determination! YOU CAN DO THIS! 🙂
