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.
