    Hi ladies. There is an excellent new blog posted that discusses the GYN Exam post-procedure:

    http://www.vaginismusmd.com/the-gyn-exam-fear-of-the-dreaded-speculum/

    Excerpts include:
    “It may seem impossible but patients who have been treated with the Botox program are able to have success with a GYN exam. One of our patients wrote a story, titled “Dreaded GYN Exam” that describes this woman’s experience with her GYN exam post-procedure. An excerpt of this story follows: ‘Now it was time for my exam, usually at this point I am sweating, panicked and so filled with anxiety that I can’t relax and just cry. Today, I was talking to my doctor as she inserted the speculum and in a matter of seconds my pap smear was complete! She gave me a big hug and said that I did very well.’”

    I would encourage you to read this important new blog and would welcome your comments and feedback here.
