Hi guys, it’s so nice to have found somewhere to talk with other people about this. 🙂
I’m a 22 year old Irish girl in a long-term hetero relationship, and although I’d prefer to keep my real name private for now I’m also known as Bitesize in real life (I’m one of those Irish leprechauns!)
I had some trouble when I initially started trying to have sex five years ago and after researching my problem discovered a lot about vaginismus… however the problem disappeared quite soon and I didn’t consider it again. Some time into my current (3 year) relationship I started experiencing pain during sex once more and after many, many different doctor visits I was referred to a Psychosexual Therapist who suggested that it was (secondary) vaginismus. I’ve been using dilators for a few months now and having bi-monthly meetings with my therapist and am coming along slowly…. hoping to be able to have penetrative sex again before too long!
Just wanted to say a little bit about myself and how nice it is to meet you all. Hope you’re all doing well!August 16, 2013 at 4:57 pm #11761rachelParticipant
My name is Rachel and I am originally from the UK. Glad you found this website-it offers so much good advice and tips for dilation and treatment options. Well let us know if there is anything you need help with!August 18, 2013 at 9:46 am #11768
Thanks, I’m glad I found it too!August 21, 2013 at 9:13 pm #11784NakitalabParticipant
Hi Bitesize! Thank you for sharing your story. I’m so happy that you found the Forum. It has been a huge part of my healing process in knowing that I’m not alone, that I can share my ups and downs and I get wonderful support and advice from others who have suffered like I have. Being able to share our frustrations as well as our successes is so huge. Welcome to the Forum, Bitesize! And huge kudos to you for dilating!August 22, 2013 at 10:05 am #11787Heather34Moderator
Hi bitesize. Welcome to the Forum. Like Nakita said, I’m so glad you found it and please know that we are all here to support you. I also read that you are from Ireland and think this is so wonderful. My husband and I are planning to visit for our 10-year wedding anniversary in a few years as he has family there and it’s our dream to see the countryside. He was in the Air Force and has traveled to so many different countries but I have only ever visited the States and Canada. Ireland will be amazing!!!!August 27, 2013 at 4:35 pm #11814
Glad you’re planning a visit – we do have some lovely countryside areas, particularly in the west of Ireland. Thanks for the welcome!August 27, 2013 at 8:14 pm #11818candiParticipant
Welcome! I have many Irish friends! I love them all so much, and so much fun!! Someday I would like to visit Ireland myself. Lots of luck. We’re all in this together supporting one another!September 11, 2013 at 12:49 pm #11863NicolaParticipant
I’m also from Ireland, Just wondering have you went to any clinics for treatment or anything? I have been recently told I have primary vanginismus so I’m looking for a clinic that treats it.
