Hello from Tennessee!

Postby kellypitts » Thu May 02, 2013 1:13 pm

Hey Everyone!

Just wanted to reach out and wish everyone luck on their TTC journey! I am 25 and DH is 26. We have been married for three years this June but together for 7. We have started TTC our first two months ago. I am so excited that we are trying but disappointed every time I take a negative test.

Our situation is unique in that I had to overcome vaginismus for us to even be able to think about trying for children. Vaginismus is a condition where the muscles inside of your vagina and pelvic floor involuntarily clamp shut and it is impossible to get anything through them. We saved ourselves for marriage and then were unable to consummate for the first two years of our marriage because you literally cannot experience penetration with this condition. I went through a series of getting muscle relaxers injected into the walls and doing stretches with dilators and meeting with a physical therapist who does hands on internal stretching twice a week. We have been having pain free sex for over a year now and are now exciting about trying to get pregnant!

I wish you all lots of luck and look forward to interacting with you guys! :)

Hey there! Welcome to the craziness of TTC!!

You've had quite a journey! I've never heard of Vaginismus, and I can't imagine what it was like to have to go through that! I'm glad the problem was resolved!

Best of luck to you!
