Vaginismus Awareness Day, 15th September 2020

Vaginismus Awareness Day! 15-Sep-2020 - Sh! Women's Store

Join us this Sunday the 15th of September for our Vaginismus Awareness Day event. Vaginismus is a condition that affects at least 2 in every 1000 women in the UK, yet comparatively few people know what it is. This lack of awareness and subsequent stigma stops many from seeking medical help, often due to embarrassment or fear. We want to see this changed, and for everyone suffering to feel supported and know they are not alone. This is why we are holding a Q&A session at Sh! from 11.30am to 12.30pm, where we will be joined by the Vaginismus Network including the co-founder, Lisa Mackenzie, Sarah Berry, a psychosexual and relationship therapist specialising in Vaginismus, and Hazel Mead, a sex positive digital illustrator. From what Vaginismus is, to how you can have a fulfilled and pleasurable sex life the panel will be there to answer all your questions.

This event is open to all women and vulva-bearing people, in particular those who have been diagnosed with Vaginismus or who experience pain around their vulva or vagina (but may not have received a diagnosis).

It is completely free to attend, we just ask that you email to book a place to help us with numbers.

When emailing feel free to send in any questions you have in advance, and we will answer them anonymously. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions on the day, also anonymously if you wish. Refreshments will be provided. We hope to see you there!
