Welcome to the Vaginismus.com Community Center where we offer women the opportunity to become involved in our very active on-line private forum (thousands of posts) and chat room. The forum is a safe place for women to receive practical information, solid advice, and encouragement from moderators and other women going through the self-help programs. For more information about the forums and how to obtain a pass see below.
Once the kit is received, all the information and tools are available for a woman to overcome vaginismus. However, there is one other effective 'tool' which cannot be boxed and sent to you - ENCOURAGEMENT! The forum is a place where women can find real encouragement and support.
"Reading & writing in this forum can massively reduce the sense of isolation…"
"The words "guilty secret" state exactly how I saw vaginismus until I joined this forum. I've noticed I'm not thinking quite like that any more. I was aware of the huge burden and shame of vaginismus every single day and now I can even contemplate the possibility in the future of sharing my story with others. Reading & writing in this forum can massively reduce the sense of isolation and hopelessness that so many of us started with."
" I am so glad to have this forum…"
"Thank you all for your suggestions and thoughts and thanks mostly for YOUR SUPPORT. I am so glad to have this forum where I know I am not alone."
"It was hard to beat vaginismus before I found out about this forum but now I'm finally making progress … it's a fantastic support and motivates me like little else!"
"I cannot believe I found this…"
"I look forward with hope to the encouragement, prayers and support from the wonderful women in this forum. With your help, I know I will soon overcome vaginismus. Discovering this site, learning about the kit and reading through postings in this forum have been a Godsend. I cannot believe I found this."
"I'm so glad I have found this forum…"
"I'm so glad I have found this forum because I really don't have anyone to talk things through with. I was too afraid to get close to anyone … the shame and embarrassment of having to share my "problem" was too overwhelming."
The primary goal of the forum is to provide a network of support for women who are actively working to overcome vaginismus. Our forum is available 24 hours a day. Women can ask questions about physical or emotional issues as well as gain much needed positive encouragement as they work through the program steps. Examples of topics covered in our forum include:
Any woman who joins the forum can feel free to post her questions or concerns anonymously by using the screen name of her choice. Some women silently read the posts of others for encouragement and some become active participants in the many encouraging thread discussions.
The forum also has a chat room for women to connect on a more personal level. Women from around the world with vaginismus can chat about their lives or ask questions about treatment. We find that even in anonymity, as women begin to open up about their problem, they become more positive about the condition of vaginismus because they no longer feel as isolated. The chat room can also provide privacy for one-on-one sessions with a moderator. Private messaging can also be used to contact any women in the forum to ask questions or form online friendships.
The forum is driven by women helping other women and moderators are available for technical and emotional support concerning vaginismus treatment. It is our desire that this will be a safe place of hope, encouragement, knowledge, inspiration, friendship and healing as women work through the self-help program together at the same time. The vaginismus.com forum is a private area and is only open only to those who have a pass.
There is now a free forum pass included in all orders for our Book Sets or Vaginismus Kits. The forum is reserved for those who are going through our program and have received our books (passes are not included when only a dilator set is ordered). As there are public forums for vaginismus sufferers currently available on the web, our forum is specifically geared to women who are familiar with and working through our program.
A forum pass enables you to create a private and anonymous password and username. Once you have your username and password, you are able to receive entrance into the private forum and community center gaining access to the support of hundreds of women worldwide.
NOTE: If you have previously ordered these products and do not have a pass, please contact us to obtain one (at no cost).
Yes, spouses are allowed. It is often helpful for spouses to educate themselves about vaginismus and to have a place where they can ask questions and find support if desired. We have created a private forum area reserved for spouses and partners so they can find support as well.
NOTE: Spouses will need their own separate email address to create a username (two usernames cannot share the same address). Also, spouses should note that they need to follow forum guidelines for acceptable posts.
