I am a 30 year old woman, living in the UK, blogging my way through treatment for vaginismus.
Let me explain...
Vaginismus is vaginal tightness causing discomfort, burning, pain, penetration problems, or complete inability to have intercourse. There is much more information about the condition over here: click me!
I was diagnosed with vaginismus at the age of 21 but lived in a haze of avoidance for nine years. After getting married and hitting the big 3-0, I decided it was time to face the problem and have begun treatment.
The aim of the blog is simple- raise awareness of the condition, and ideally find other women with vaginismus and create a community of support through sharing experiences, motivating each other through treatment and, most importantly, keeping positive. My philosophy in life is that laughter is the best medicine. Whilst vaginismus is obviously horrible, I have found that trying to lighten the mood and laugh about it has really helped me.
It's important to point out- I am not a doctor or a therapist. I'm a writer with vaginismus. All of the opinions and stories on this blog are based on my own experiences. If you have vaginismus, or think you have vaginismus, please do go and see a health professional. It won't be as embarrassing as you think it will be!
So hello! Welcome! Enjoy!
And if you want to get in touch, please do! I love a chat.
