    Hi all! Over the weekend, we hit a huge milestone and now have 400 members of the VaginismusMD Forum! Huge congratulations to Dr. Pacik and Janet on this monumental success! I can never begin to thank you enough for creating such an awesome community of support for all of us. I believe in everything the Forum stands for and love what Dr. Pacik has written concerning it:

    “The VaginismusMD Forum is a place where any woman or man can ask any question about vaginismus and expect an answer. Since early 2012, 300 (NOW 400!!!!!) dedicated and vocal women have added to the strength of the VaginismusMD Forum by asking questions and disseminating information about vaginismus. The VaginismusMD Forum reads like a textbook in medicine discussing the complete range of vaginismus from symptoms to treatment and post-procedure support.

    I cannot begin to describe the multiple benefits of joining this group of vocal women who:

    • no longer want to feel as though they need to hide

    • do not want to feel that vaginismus is “their problem alone”

    • no longer tolerate being put down by their GYN doctors who too often tell them “It’s in your head” “Why don’t you just try to relax”

    • do not want to feel like a freak as they watch their relationships disintegrate and their self-esteem vanish

    • have tried years of failed treatments at considerable time and cost.

    The power of the VaginismusMD Forum has changed all that Women now have a voice and they know they can receive needed advice and guidance on the VaginismusMD Forum. Women are now arriving for treatment much more relaxed after posting on the VaginismusMD Forum. Buckets of tears have been replaced by smiles knowing that success is around the corner when they arrive for treatment. Patients are now concerned that they are not nervous before treatment and wondering if they should be more nervous!”

    I want to thank each and every one of you for adding to the success of the VaginismusMD Forum. In earlier posts, I shared of the way that I discovered Dr. Pacik’s treatment – through one member’s post about it in a vaginismus Forum. If it were not for this one person and one post talking about Dr. Pacik and her experience post-procedure, I do not know if I ever would’ve found out about this treatment. Let’s “pay it forward” and all do the same for other women out there. That is, let’s think of any and all ways we can advocate and get the word out about this amazing VaginismusMD Forum and Dr. Pacik’s treatment program???

    Wow, that’s unbelievable. I will definitely help any way that I can and I have been thinking about it lately. I would not want other women to start out their adult lives the way I have. Yes, sex is part of life, but also, being able to have the GYN exams is so, so important. If I had a daughter, I would never let vaginismus get in the way of living her life. In fact, I have already mentioned Dr. Pacik to two doctors, one a dermatologist and one a gynecologist. Fortunately, they were aware of the Botox for this and that’s a good thing!

    I think it is unbelievably awesome that you mentioned Dr. Pacik and this treatment to these doctors and it’s so, so important! I remember post-procedure, getting a ton of his pamphlets from the office, and giving them to all of my doctors. It helped me to be able to explain the treatment while they were reading the pamphlet. One of my ob/gyn docs was so impressed that she pulled up the site with a link to the pure romance dilators and asked me questions about them. She said she had treated patients with vaginismus in the past but had always recommended the hard plastic white dilators which didn’t seem to work well. She also never recommended Dr. Pacik’s program because she didn’t know it existed. Following our conversation, she referred two people up there and began recommending pure romance dilators. So, little by little, word of mouth definitely is working. I, too, would never want another woman to have to silently suffer with this condition when there is a cure out there that works. Can you think of any further ways we can collectively spread the word about both vaginismus and this treatment?
