I had to take action if I ever wanted to pursue a healthy relationship or have children*

Posted by womentc in Vaginismus Blog 10 Apr 2014

I always knew I was uncomfortable with that part of my body. I had wanted to wait until marriage for sex and somehow thought that once I was in love with someone I could overcome the discomfort and things would just happen naturally.

After meeting my husband, we had tried to have sex while we were engaged and when it wasn’t happening we just thought it was my nerves because we weren’t yet married. But after marriage, things did not improve. I began to wonder what was wrong with me but was too embarrased to see a doctor or tell anyone!

After doing some research online, I felt I had Vaginismus but still didn’t know what to do about it. I finally came across Women’s Therapy Center online but because of my fears to actually talk about it with anyone I did not immediately seek treatment.

Finally, my husband decided we would divorce. He said he could not deal with the fact that I would not seek any help and he wanted a family and a normal relationship.

That was a very difficult time for me but going through it made me decide I had to take action if I ever wanted to pursue a healthy relationship or have children. I contacted Women’s Therapy Center and started planning my trip to attend. Me and my ex-husband decided to reconcile and he was able to attend some of the treatment with me.

We have now re-married and our expecting our first baby*!
