I eventually stopped going to PT. My husband and I were doing everything at home that Dr. W was doing in the office.  Of course life gets in the way.  Anytime any progress is made, something happens.  With vaginismus, I am super prone to UTIs and infections… so it seems like any time we have intercourse, or things start looking up… something will happen that will put things on hold.

I will get sick, I will get an infection, my husband will have a big project coming up…. just life2 and the same thing happens that happened with the dilators.  If I do not use them every single day, if we don’t do stretching and exercises, then we go right back to square one.


Right now (4/5/12) we have not had intercourse since 2/14/12.  2 months seems like a long time, but when I think back and remember that it took 2 years… I try not to get down about it.  I am still working with my dilators, although I am not back up to Billy yet, and my husband has to stretch me every night or at least every other night.  Progress is being made again, and I feel like we will probably be able to have pain free sex again by the end of the month if we stay on course with the therapy.

  1. I’ve known you since high school, and never realized you were dealing with this. I just wanted to take a moment and say that my respect for you and your husband has went through the roof.( which is saying something because of all your work with the modified dolls, I already respected you all. Thanks for all you do, and always keep your heads up because you make a difference in this world no matter how one looks upon you.

    • Haha, I didnt realize I kind of made that last line negative. I meant that you all have a very positive impact in this world.
