Heard the following from a patient:
“I used to reflect on what time of day it was and who might be in the store at the same time because I was so embarrassed being seen buying sanitary pads… Occasionally, I would buy tampons even though I was not able to use them, just to have them the house in case a friend would ask for one…”
These ‘dark’ secrets came out once she was cured and able to use tampons freely.
The power of vaginismus over one’s life is immense. And living in secrecy, which is so common, is not an easy task.
