That pain sounds like it’s in a similar area to when I have a really bad bladder infection. My vaginismus pain is more like a ring of tension all around the vagina, right near the entrance.
I have really bad menstrual cramps, but I don’t know if it’s related to my vaginismus. The vaginismus itself sometimes gets worse if I’m in a lot of pain in other areas, but my tooth extraction actually had far more impact than my menstrual cramps ever had.
I have frequent UTIs and mild urge and stress incontinence (the urge sometimes comes on so suddenly it’s hard to control, and sneezing or coughing can make me wet sometimes). Sometimes relaxing for the dilator makes me feel like I’m going to wet myself, but otherwise I haven’t noticed any change in my bladder because of dilating. Having a full bladder makes it a lot harder to relax for the dilator, which sucks because my goal is to tolerate an IUI better and the IUI is easier for them to do if my bladder is full.
