A Year Later!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a year since I overcame vaginismus!  What a year it’s been.  I officially become a woman and learned how to use tampons.  I have been missing out!  We went to a concert recently while AF was visiting and had I not been using tampons I would have been miserable.  I am able to have exams every year with no issues. In fact I had my yearly exam this past week and got a fist bump from my gyno because I have been doing so well.  A lot has gone on over the past year, too much to formulate into thoughts to put into a blog!  We started working on our baby making process and that has been an interesting journey.  I don’t want to go into details because not a lot of people know the specifics and I want to keep it that way J  We FINALLY got an offer on our house a couple weeks ago!  Of course we had not been looking at houses because we thought our house would never sell, so we had to scramble to go out looking.  We found a house we like, put an offer in and now we’re just waiting on our buyer to get back to us on our proposal for repairs she wanted done.  Hopefully the whole shebang doesn’t fall through!

Recently I had an email from a woman who stumbled onto my blog when she google’d vaginismus.  How honored was I that she sent an email asking for advice and suggestions for her!  THAT was why I did this blog in the first place- to reach out to women out there that are too embarrassed to talk about this with a doctor they hardly know.  It gave me a chance to contact my PT to ask her for some recommendations in Indiana for this woman; it was nice to talk to her and catch up a little bit on how I’m doing since my treatment. 

I have had over 1200 visitors to my blog since I started.  Of course I helped that a long a little bit by posting my blog submissions to, so some of those people didn’t have a choice but to see my blog, but that’s ok!

I have also been asked to write a post about vaginismus and the effects it has on a woman’s sex life for  I am so happy to have my story out there for women who have been embarrassed and scared about their vaginismus. 

That’s about all I can think to blog right now.  My mind is a flutter of thoughts with everything going on with us.
