    Hi all. There is a new Blog posted this week concerning Talking to Parents About Vaginismus:

    http://www.vaginismusmd.com/talking-parents-vaginismus/

    In it, Dr. Pacik writes:

    “Talking to parents is actually quite easy when one explains that not only is it difficult (or impossible) to use tampons but also that it is often impossible to have a GYN exam. This helps remove the conversation from sexual difficulties of vaginismus and emphasizes the inability to use tampons during menses and the disadvantage of not being able to have a proper GYN exam. One does not need to discuss sexual involvement.”

    Furthermore, there is excellent commentary from a treated patient regarding how she spoke to her parents and also commentary from the mother of a treated patient regarding how she spoke to her daughter about vaginismus.

    As always, I welcome your comments and feedback here. What helped you to bring this up to your parents? Parents, I would love your input here as well regarding communication tips.
