Very random and no idea if it correlates, but how many women on here who suffer from vaginismus are also vegetarian/vegan?
I ask bc my wife and I formerly had mutually enjoyable sex, however that stopped when her vaginismus set in, which ironically (or not) happened at the exact moment she stopped eating meat. Five years ago.
Today she saw a general doctor for a basic checkup who after looking at her for two minutes (and not knowing anything about her) asked her if she was anemic (TBD). He knew she didn’t eat meat and even perfectly described her cycle.
Again, not saying it’s directly correlated but perhaps anemia plays a part in it? Do we have any other veggies here?
Interesting question! Being a provider that treats vaginismus, I have not seen a correlation between vegetarianism and vaginismus. Or iron deficiency and vaginismus. Becoming a vegetarian is a big change, any reason she decided to become a vegetarian? Or any other big changes in life around that time?
