How to Enter
Having Vaginismus can feel like the loneliest place in the world, we know. We also know that sharing stories and experiences can help conquor the feelings of isolation, so associated with painful sex.
So we're asking for you story, in your own words.
It can be as short or long as you like. In whatever form you like. from whatever and there's no bonus points for posh-writing!
We'll share your story on vaginismusawareness.com (anonymously of course, if you prefer) to raise awareness of how Vaginismus impacts lives and to help other sufferers not feel so alone...
We welcome stories from everbody. Perhaps you're just starting out on your journey, or have gone through treatment, or are supporting someone else with Vaginismus?
If you would like to be entered into the draw to be awarded a Vaginal Dilator Set, just let us know. We do ask that you or the person you're supporting have sought diagnosis and treatment, as self-diagnosis is not recommended.
