Hi JeanMarie! First, huge CONGRATS on completing the procedure and having intercourse! Woooooh! I am so, so happy for you. Second, thank you so, so much for sharing your story with us. I’m sorry about your experience with the vaginal reconstructive surgeon and the negative information and viewpoint about Botox, the one procedure that WORKS!!! I, too, had gynecologists in the past say negative things about it. I wish I could share with every single ‘doubting doctor’ the evidence that it truly does work and this is in the form of being cured myself after struggling for so many years and just the countless other patients who have also been cured from their struggles with vaginismus. I loved reading about how your best friend discovered Dr. Pacik in Cosmo; this led you to make the call and have the procedure; and you are now able to have intercourse just 4-days later. AMAZING!!! And this was able to happen ladies all because one of Dr. P’s previously treated patients decided to share her story and continue to advocate regarding the condition and the treatment that works. Very inspiring. I also really loved what you wrote “I have NEVER been at such ease among doctors & staff as I was in Dr. Pacik’s office.” This is so, so true and for all future patients awaiting treatment, it is truly a team like no other in the world and they go out of there way to make you feel 100% comfortable and just have a special way of reducing your anxiety. Congratulations again Jean Marie and I LOVED reading your post!!!!
