Hi Sofi and Dr. Pacik. Sofi, you wrote “I wasted about 6 years with doctors who had never heard of vaginismus.” This is so unfortunate and I want to do everything that we can do together to make sure that doctors become educated and informed about the condition. Dr. P, I think the idea of providing our doctors with brochures which describe both the condition and treatment is excellent. So many times, it is very difficult to find the words to explain the condition and often times, even if you can, some physicians may still not fully understand you. I’ve brought Dr. Pacik’s brochures to both my ob/gyn and PCP visits post-procedure and they have gone over very well. The doctors not only took the time to read them and further understand vaginismus, but also asked questions about the specific dilators and ways they can help other patients.
