Hi everyone!
Well I’ve never really told my story before and there couldn’t be a better place! My name is Jeannie & I just had Dr. P’s procedure done last Tuesday. Since then, I have achieved penetration (with no thrusting) on Day 4 and I’m certain had I dilated beforehand, it would’ve been a more comfortable experience. But now for the story:
I realized I had vaginismus about 2.5 years ago and although my gynecologist knew what it was, he wasn’t sure how to help. He referred me to a vaginal reconstructive surgeon who knew the condition well. While she mentioned botox as a solution, she was very against it and only shared negative information. She was sure I could be “fixed” with psychotherapy and a type of physical therapy where they would teach me to not tense my muscles. Neither of these appealed to me and so I researched the botox methods myself. I hadn’t come across Dr. P yet, but with her information floating around me I gave up hope for another two years and assumed I would just be able to have sex “when I was ready.” As understanding as the people in my life were, having the condition messed with me on a mental level. Not being able to do something that comes so natural to all those around you does not make you feel normal. My best friend found the Dr. Ps in Cosmo and I was relieved she had read it and recognized my condition because without her, I never would have been where I am now. I immediately contacted the office and was pleasantly surprised to receive a response by the next day. I have NEVER been at such ease among doctor’s & staff as I was in Dr. Pacik’s office, down to Tasha and the anesthesiologist. I had the procedure done last Tuesday and woke up not even feeling the blue dilator inside. This helped incredibly mentally because I KNEW it fit and it made me relax easier when practicing later. I’ve since been best friends with my purple dilator and find the glass No. 5 very easy and comfortable to work with. I know things will only keep progressing for the better and I can’t thank Dr. Pacik and his wonderful, sweet staff enough. I’ve never wanted children, maybe because in the back of my mind I never thought I could be capable of having sex, let alone bearing children. But I’ve since found myself ogling at my cousin’s new twins and looking forward to starting a family someday! =)
