Hello, I have an issue that has become more and more of a thorn in my side over the years, to the point that is affecting my quality of life, marriage and at some times even my emotional state of mind...I am a 26 year old married virgin and I am for the most part a really private person but I am almost at my wits end trying to find some direction in solving this problem. My husband and I have been married for over 3 years and before we married I didn't know this was an issue because we had never tried actual intercourse. I did know beforehand that I had a sort of fear of penetration, but I didn't think it would actually prevent me. I could go on and on for more than 4000characters about all the issues this has called but I'll just say, I don't have the finances to be referred from dr2dr as I have been. Also, I know the diagnosis I was given is vaginismus and I have had a hymenectoomy over a year ago...is there ANYONE out there who may have some insight as to where I can go or what I can do for help? I feel the need to state a couple things that have come up in my past cries for help...1. i've never been sexually molested. 2. i do love and am attracted to my husband 3. i am attracted to men (again, specifically my husband) besides that, we've tried numerous things suggested to us obviously with no results. Sorry this post is so long, but I'm getting desperate for some answers and help. I'm always in prayer, but I need resources. Any ideasView Thread
