"I'm five months pregnant with our first! When I first started my journey, I was single, felt unlovable, could use tampons, but would freak out at the mere sight of the dilators I bought. I left them in their pouch for months.
I decided to get informed and I learned to love my body, my overly protective vagina and renamed certain body parts to reframe my mindset. It soon became clear that vaginismus is more than just 'a vagina in panic'. It's a whole body, mind and soul in panic, and if I was to heal, I needed to heal holistically. This meant making peace with myself, my past, men and sexuality.
There is hope and those sort of wonders are real! You have the strength in you to overcome vaginismus, but you need to have courage, face it and do the work you've been running away from this whole time. It's so worth it."
