How Botox Helped Her To Have Pain Free Sex

Being unable to have sex, or pain free sex is traumatizing.  Getting enough courage to talk to a doctor about your Va jay jay and sex is a huge emotional decision for any female to make…

Especially when your Va jay jay feels closed up most, or all of the time.  In other words like a wall is covering the vaginal entrance ( A condition called vaginismus).

However, many women find that once they have finally bucked up enough courage to talk to a doctor about this problem, they are not taken seriously.

Often told things like, “That can happen sometimes”, “Use Lubricant”, “You are not relaxed enough”, “You are not aroused enough.  Try doing more Foreplay”.

This often results in lowering the ladies self-esteem even further than it was,  and compounding any shame most of these women already feel.

It’s also not unusual for ladies to be fobbed off again if they go back to their doctor about it.

This is why it is important
NOT to give up or suffer in silence. 

Find a doctor that that will listen and take you seriously, as this girl Lara did as you will see in her story below.

Like most females, Lara had never heard of vaginismus (a condition when the vaginal muscles tense up (spasm) involuntarily during any form of penetration, including sex), until she was taken seriously and diagnosed with it.

She suffered for over 10 years with vaginismus.

I Got Botox In My Vagina

In her college years, Lara only tried to have sex one or two times.  Both times were very traumatic.  She thought she had chosen partners that would be understanding, and thought she could just push through the pain.

She found she never could just push through the pain, and wished she had never tried.

When she did talk about it to various doctors, they made her feel like she was over-reacting, and that it was something she could just get over.

She felt that the Doctors had the uncaring mindset of…

Your vagina may hurt,
BUT it’s not the end of the world!

Finally, she found some doctors that took her seriously, gynecologist Dr Mickey Karram and plastic surgeon Dr Jaime Schwartze.

At last, she felt believed and validated.

They suggested to inject her vagina with the neurotoxin botox, to stop the nerves getting to the muscles, and stop the muscles from contracting (tightening up).

Followed on by pelvic floor rehabilitation with aggressive physical therapy while the muscles are relaxed, to help stop her pelvic floor muscles from going back into the tight muscle state (when the botox wears off in a few months).

The Day Lara Got the Botox Injected
Into Her Vagina

Sitting in the plastic surgeons’ room at The Roxbury Institute, Lara felt a lot of hope.  So thankful they believed her and wanted to actually help her.

While semi-sedated with laughing gas, Lara was able to relax during the procedure.

After the procedure:

After the procedure when asked if she could feel the injections being done,  Lara said, “I definitely felt it, but it seemed like it was far away.  It felt like an out-of-body experience.”

Day one: Her vaginal area felt sore, but nothing she wasn’t used to, and nothing she couldn’t handle.

Next few days: She was feeling really anxious that she had just got needles stuck in her for no reason, and that it wasn’t going to work.

Not long after: She felt up to using her vaginal dilator.   Anxious it would not work.  To her surprise it did work.  She could insert the smallest dilator and it was easy.  A breakthrough that left her overwhelmed and tearful.

Tears of joy.  In the last five years this had never happened for her before.

Lara is only twenty-five years old and had suffered with vaginismus for 10 years.  Her perseverance in finding a doctor to take her seriously has paid off.

With the help of the botox and more dilator use she can now begin to overcome the vaginismus and live a normal life.

She also points out she used to be able to have/feel orgasms before she got the botox injections in her vagina, but cannot feel orgasms since the botox treatment.

It’s important to note:

(1)  Botox injections usually only last for a few months.  Once it wears off Lara should be able to have and feel her orgasms again.

(2)  We also wish Lara complete recovery from vaginismus when the botox effect wears off.

(3)  Dilator training is recommended as a treatment for vaginismus as it helps to stretch the vagina – You can learn more – How To use A Vaginal Dilator.
