Figuring all this out - November 26th 2016, 06:05 PM

I have a disorder called vaginismus. It's really weird. It's where basically the vagina clamps down really really hard when you try to insert something up in it. I had to look it up because I didn't know all that much about it. It's kind of embarrassing. A lot of my friends are starting to have sex and they talk about it with me and it sucks because I know I physically can't without being a in a whole lot of pain, and I don't really know how to talk to them about it either. I can't put a tampon in even the small ones (which is incredibly inconvenient because I'm a swimmer) and I can't even masturbate. I've been trying to at least put a tampon in by myself for a while now. I get it about 1/3 of the way in and it's not comfortable but it's bearable and then this switch flips where I completely cannot move it any further and it's really painful. Honestly, I've been ignoring it for a while but it's really starting to get in the way of swimming and dance since I do that as well. I'm not afraid of sex. I personally don't want to have it right now but I want it to at least remain a possibility for me. I'm trying my best I guess and would just really like some advice.

I used to date a girl who thought she had this (she never went to a doctor so doesn't know for sure) but did some research on it and there are a couple of options the most common one is the the use of these plastic things (I don't remember the name) that you use to train yourself to be comfortable with something in there; starts smaller than a tampon i think but don't quote me on this. Surgery is a possibility but very unlikely, there might be some other options but if there are i don't remember them.
I don't know how much use this is.

Have you tried doing a google search? I know there are exercises that can help and I have heard mention of the plastic things but I don't know what they are. I don't have a lot of experience with this problem but doing a google search on it might help. Also, if you have a counselor that you see you can talk to them about this issue and they might have some suggestions on what you can do.
