We are touched by the sincerity and intimate sharing of Jo’s story, recorded today with the hope to inspire others NOT to live with vaginismus but rather to seek help as soon as possible. To quote her:
“I first met the doctors of the Women’s Therapy Center back in 2001 but I was not ready to face the treatment. I did not believe vaginismus can be conquered and I ran away from it for the next 16 years. But when I called again in 2017 I was ready having lost a marriage to the condition, the ability to bear children because of a recently-diagnosed breast and lymphatic cancer, and the death of a second, much beloved husband who made me promise to cure my vaginismus. Having just completed the treatment process (was easy!), I now know that vaginismus does not have to be lived with!”
Thank you, Jo, for showing us what bravery and being strong is all about — you are a true inspiration!
