I loved reading your post! I’m so impressed with you and your journey so far. I had vaginismus for several years until 2016 when I went to Maze’s clinic in NYC and ‘graduated’ from the dilating program!
I think I was a very difficult case – I couldn’t wear tampons from the pain/fear, and the thought of dilating with even the smallest dilator gave me immense fear. The physical portion of the first couple appointments were incredibly nerve-wracking; I was prescribed Xanax to take before each following appointment.
But I got through it in 2016 and if I could do it SO CAN YOU! i definitely had times when I thought I couldn’t go further but I powered through (like you’re doing), knowing it would feel so amazing and fulfilling and clear sooooooo much mental energy to not have the ‘weight’ of vaginismus on my shoulders!
So looking forward to reading more about your journey and glad you have support in your life :).
