@ Amanda, welcome to the forum again and I love reading your posts. Thank you so, so much for sharing your story with us and congratulations on your tremendous success! As I wrote in my reply under “Success Stories”, its stories like yours that make me just want to tell every other women in the world who is struggling with this all about vaginismus and that there is a real treatment program out there that works. I entirely agree with you too that Dr. P and every one of his staff members make you feel welcome and never ever treat you like an “outcast” or freak as so many other clinicians who don’t understand vaginismus do. I love your statement “If you are struggling with this, you are not alone … speak up and don’t be afraid … there are people out there to help you.” Vaginismus itself can make you feel so, so isolated and you really do suffer with this condition in silence, often hiding it from even your closest family and friends. It’s so, so important to know that you are not alone with this and there really are people out there who CARE and will help you to overcome. Excellent and inspiring post Amanda!!! As you have successfully transitioned to intercourse, I would encourage you to provide any advice, tips, and suggestions under the Daily Questions 2 topic (Daily Questions Category) and I look forward to reading your posts.
