My vagina is not what I envisioned it to be…

Posted by Ditza Katz in Vaginismus Blog 21 Oct 2014

From a patient with primary vaginismus during her first gynecologic examination with us, looking at her vagina through an open speculum:

It is not what I envisioned it to be… During all my years of struggling with vaginismus, I always thought of my vagina as raw, red, sad… But now, looking at it through the open speculum — it is simple, just a tunnel, nothing more, and it gives life!  This experience is so amazing and powerful.  Now I know that my vagina is a part on ME…”

We never grow tired of witnessing the transformation from living by misconceptions about the (invisible) vagina to a healthy woman who owns her body.
