I have recently been working with several women who had vaginismus, but with tremendous courage and perseverance they worked hard to get the largest size dilator in with no pain. As anyone who has dilated knows, that is no easy task. But having sex was not the main goal for either of these women. They wanted to be able to not live in fear of GYN exams, and think something was “wrong” with them. One is a competitive triathlete who wanted to be able to wear tampons, and that has made a huge difference in her quality of life. Reasons for addressing and curing vaginismus are varied, and please know it does not have to be just about sex.
Jay2014, I totally agree with this! It was a big part of why I ended up getting my botox procedure in the end. It had less to do with having sex with the person I was with than it did just having the option of having sex and the future (as well as all that comes with it, including childbirth). Even today, though I love sex now, the best thing I got out of my treatment was a feeling of normalcy and of future possiblity.
