It was the month of August 2012 and we were a few months short of being married 7 years and still no sign of me getting pregnant. My biological clock is ticking fast..I never thought it would be so hard to get pregnant. All my friends were getting married and having babies. What was wrong with me? Why couldn’t I get pregnant? Is my vagina too small for my husband’s penis? I was always very healthy and strong. I did discover that when I went for a cervical smear test I became very nervous, anxious and experience pain when the instrument ‘speculum’ was inserted. Ouch.. I had to ask myself Why Me? My husband was at the doctor’s one evening and mentioned it to his doctor who at a later date referred us onto a Pychotherapist. Our 1st appointment was on the last Thursday, August 2012. We discussed our problems with him. From then on we met once a week for an hour and he asked us to do some exercises that would help us to connect and relax. In October 2012 our Pychotherapist discovered from the way I was feeling and due to a bicycle accident I had when I was a child that I suffered from this condition known as ‘Vaginismus’. I never ever heard of this condition before. He done some research and saw there was a book and kit I could get that would be most beneficial to me so he ordered it online and I began the program. I started on Step 1 and worked my way gradually to Step 10. In March 2013 I can proudly say I overcame ‘Vaginismus’ and can now enjoy a very happy, healthy and loving sex life. I am so grateful to:-
Mark & Lisa Carter for this splendid book, my Pychotherapist for all his hard work and patience and to my husband for all his help and support during this difficult time in my life. In the future months to come we would love to start a family, but in the meantime, we can now both enjoy having (pain free) sexual intercourse regularly and it’s only wonderful. A dream come true finally for both of us. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
