Every women who suffers from vaginismus would like to completely overcome it so she can move on with life in a ‘normal’ manner. But, how does she go from finding the name (vaginismus) for her ‘problem,’ to finding the right treatment, to reaching a cure that will last forever?
For those who can self treat, the road may be short and efficient; but for most, it will be many-years long, quite frustrating, and often never-ending. Furthermore, despite the Internet providing access to resources like never before, the medical field is still dismissive or ignorant about vaginismus, treatment options are varied and not standardized, and women are hard-pressed to find expert clinicians in their locale.
Curing vaginismus has nothing to do with sex or sexual arousal because the vagina can, and should, perform in ‘neutrality’ (without arousal), or inserting a tampon or undergoing a gynecologic exam or vaginal ultrasound would have been desired sexual thrills…
To cure vaginismus, the woman must not only assume ownership over her vagina and all vaginal penetrations, but also recognize the associated anxiety/panic and resolve it to the point of it never ‘ruling’ her vagina again.
Indeed, patience and expert guidance are needed to merge the vagina and the mind into a harmonious relationship that can withstand the test of time, which defines ‘completely overcoming vaginismus.’
