I've suffered from vaginismus for five years. I was nineteen when I lost my virginity, it was painful, and I cried, but I've heard it was normal for some women to feel pain the first time. In the months following, I continued to feel pain, and I knew there was something wrong with me. It took a toll on my relationship where my ex-boyfriend became emotionally abusive by blaming me claiming that I was the problem. It was then I looked up on Google the symptoms; pain during penetration, pain wearing tampons, pain when a finger goes inside, and the results led up to vaginismus, and it became a burden. I would later have another ex-boyfriend dump me for the same reason my first ex-boyfriend did, and I became depressed thinking if two ex-boyfriends have dumped me because of my chronic pain, then more men will. I decided to seek treatment after it was suggested by my gyno when I had a pap smear (a painful experience at the time). I went to physical therapy, which helped slowly but surely. I would later find a boyfriend that was patient with my chronic pain. Our sex life was hit-or-miss at times, it took eight months into our relationship to have successful penetrative sex. From there, sex got more comfortable and enjoyable. I'm no longer with that boyfriend, but I'm forever grateful that he was patient and didn't give up on our relationship due to my vaginismus. I recently had a pap smear appointment, and my gyno smiled and said, "Very good, you passed with flying colors." I'm currently dating again, and I found a new partner, and there haven't been any issues 😉 I watched this video thinking how proud I've come a long way, I beat vaginismus, and I know my worth now than I did back then.
