Thanks so much for sharing your perspective with us here, Rachid! It’s helpful to remember that couples and partners are affected differently by vaginismus based on their backgrounds. We often give men the same advice here (to masturbate or have their partners stimulate them when intercourse isn’t possible), but everyone has their own priorities and methods of coping. I’m glad your wife is getting help and that she received the correct diagnosis right away so you weren’t left in the dark about what to do. Please let us know if you have questions along the way – we are wishing the best for you and your wife!
