Hi everyone, my name is Claudia and I'm 18 years old. After doing some research online, I think I may be suffering from vaginismus.
I'm a virgin so I've obviously never tried full intercourse but when I try to finger myself I am so tight it hurts a lot and I can only get maybe the very tips of 1 (2 if i'm very lucky) fingers inside myself before I have to stop. I have quite small hands too so I really can't get anything big in there, especially not a penis.This might sound stupid but I'm so scared/anxious of visiting doctors, especially if it's something related to sexual health. Is there anything I can do "at home" to fix this myself or will I have to build up courage to get this looked at?Is it easy to fix? I have so many questions it's stressing me out a little.If anyone please can help me that would be great.If you need anymore info please let me know.Thanks!

It could be possible that you do have vaginismus, which is nothing you should be ashamed about! What do you use for you periods :tampons or pads ? Next time your on you period where a tampon and if it hurts and you unable to put it all in then you might have it . But I do advise you to check with a doctor first!

****Trigger Warning: SA***** I went through the same when I was younger and I also believe I suffered from vaginismus as a result of childhood sexual abuse and I also think my upbringing towards sex being a shameful act played a part. I could never use tampons, couldn't use any fingers when it came to masturbating. If you do have it just remember that it's an involuntary response, just like blinking when something comes towards your eyes. Like Iqra said try using tampons. I was too embarrassed to go to the doctors but one day I was able to use a tampon... sounds weird but I actually cried because I was so happy. Things didn't automatically get easier after that day, I just kept trying until it became easier. Don't put too much pressure on yourself. xx
