    Hi all. When I first found Dr. Pacik and decided to have the Botox treatment program for vaginismus, I kept saying to my hubby that I was having surgery and I just had so much anticipatory anxiety and fear. One of these fears that Dr. P and Ellen cleared up for us is that the treatment program is not actually surgery. Doctor Pacik has written about this on the Forum as well and I wanted to share his thoughts to relieve anxiety that others may have as well:

    Dr. Pacik writes:

    “[M]ost of the time there is NO surgery, just injections using a tiny needle and progressive dilation under anesthesia. The needle is a 30 gauge insulin needle which diabetics use to inject themselves with insulin. Even when awake you can hardly feel the tiny puncture wound. At times there is a constricting hymenal ring which needs to be released. Here too a simple snip is made on the sides, no sutures and no discomfort. I think there are many who think the treatment is more than it is.”
