Hi Bookworm – thanks so much for updating us on how it’s going for you! It sounds like you’ve made huge progress that will increase your options for having a baby. And you are definitely not alone – your pain is valid and known by so many women. I’ve read about women having babies who are still dealing with vaginismus and I believe the process works fine – the biological imperative for the baby to leave your body one way or another is too great for anything to stop it! If you’re dealing with dilating and vaginismus before you give birth, you’ll likely have to do some of that after, but you should still be able to give birth. Congrats again on your process and good luck getting pregnant!
