I have been in a relationship for about 5 years and experienced pain during intercourse after around 6 months to 1 year in it.
I immediately consulted my gynaecologist but everyone just said it’s an STD or some kind of infection. They even lasered my vagina but it did just get worse. It took them 3 years to finally even consider the diagnosis of vaginismus and vulvodynia. I am so relieved that I found this community and am able to talk about my problem.
I loved the chat and also the positive energy I got during it.
I still am hesitant about how my pain and tension can be healed, but I hope that I will find a local specialist someday that can guide me in my therapy. I would have loved to enter the group journey, but due to COVID and my student status, it is just not possible due to money reasons (it is actually so sad that money prevents us from finding health and guidance when we most need it)…
Most recently however, I invested in the Pain Free and Intimate Recipe as a New Year’s gift to myself and look forward to going through it!
I would definitely recommend this chat because it is important to talk to others about this theme and to share experiences. I wish that in the future this kind of therapy and information around it will be more and more accessible to people.
