I shared my journey with you about vaginismus not too long ago…
Well, I just wanted to say that I finally had pain free sex!
Just about a month ago it was so hard and painful to put a tampon in and I felt unworthy afterwards. I felt like I was less and I felt like giving up at first…
I started reading your blogs and your advice about vaginismus and on how to use dilators. I paid attention to what my body needs… I started to love my body more. To connect to myself and love myself more than ever before.
I learned I have the ability to control my mind and how I feel. Whenever I used my dilators, I felt for the trigger points and I added a little pressure (not a lot though) to train my body and brain to not be afraid anymore.
When my partner and I decided to do it again since the first time we tried and it was not successful, I was scared that it would be the same all over again. This time, I did feel a little bit pressure and I kept breathing in and out before we tried it and next thing I know, we did it!
I cried tears of joy because I never thought it would happen! And since, I’ve been doing amazing.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for making a platform and for not making me feel alone. Because of you, I was able to conquer and defeat vaginismus! You’re such an inspiration to me and to young women who experience vaginismus…
I kind of have strict parents who raised me with “don’t have sex” and I couldn’t tell them about it… However, it felt beyond relieving to tell you because you’re just so inspiring!
The whole aspect of sex is still new to me but it makes me happy knowing you’re right there with me through my journey! I seriously can’t thank you enough. Without the information you give and everything, I wouldn’t have known what to do.
For those struggling with vaginismus and feeling that you’re not enough, know that you can overcome this. It may take time, but it’s gonna be so worth it at the end.
