Hi Egg123 – I’m so sorry to hear that this happened to you and continues to provide so much pain and discomfort. I hope you won’t blame yourself too much because part of what makes vaginismus so difficult for the people who experience it is that certain types of discomfort are part of the treatment, and it’s unusually difficult to describe the type of pain you’re experiencing to someone else or know for sure if what you’re hearing about is what you’re feeling. You couldn’t have known the soft tissue damage would happen and it’s unfortunate that your medical team wasn’t more helpful. Your feelings of frustration are valid. I hope your current treatment strategies work and that you feel better soon!
