Hi Persevere! CONGRATULATIONS! You’re absolutely right, it takes time. Everyones body is different. Everyone’s level of vaginismus is different but consistency is key in curing vaginismus. I’m so sorry to hear you didn’t have much support but I’m so glad you had us!! This forum is amazing with a lot of information on here! I’m so happy for you! Don’t throw out your dilator kit, though! Up keep is important! I dilated just a couple times a week just until I could have sex without any preparation. Now my kit just sits in a drawer in case I ever need them again. Please feel free to be apart of this forum and offer your advice and support to others struggling 🙂
