Hi LunaQu – it’s great that you want to continue to educate on vaginismus! Definitely one of the great problems with it is that a lack of education means women are slow to figure out a diagnosis and spend many more years than they should suffering.

Kiadenmark makes a great point – there are tons of stories on here that you can start studying to learn how women have experienced vaginismus over the years (though I think you’ll see that many people suffer for years without knowing what’s going on or falsely believing their pain is normal/how all women feel). For seeing stories about teenage cases, I recommend specifically checking out the General, Success Stories, and Dilating categories.

If you have more specific questions about the experience of having vaginismus as a teen, feel free to ask!
