Your post is appreciated. It sounds like you really want to be there for your partner. You can continue to show compassion and understanding, as you have been doing, as well as encourage her to get the treatment she needs. Vaginismus is very treatable/curable. Feelings of guilt and shame often accompany this condition and can be worked through. We cannot control how someone else is feeling however, we can let them know they are not alone and be there for them.
We treat vaginismus at Maze and understand that it is a physiological issue which requires a physiological treatment. And, there is usually an emotional component to it which also needs to be addressed.
Thanks for posting and let us know how you both are doing.
