    Painful intercourse

    I’ve always had some issues with pain during sex but they’ve become unbearable and I haven’t actually had sex in well over a year. I have a toddler and eventually would like to give her a sibling. In the past I had Botox injections to relieve muscle spasms in my vagina and urethra but the pain just ends up returning. Since having my daughter my partner and I have had sex once and the pain was terrible. Now it’s built up so much in my head that I don’t know if it’s real or mental but I’m sure it’s a mix of the two.

    I saw a dr a year ago and she was very dismissive and kind of just made me feel stupid. She told me to go see a physical therapist for pelvic floor therapy but they were booked out for months and weren’t able to give me information on another place or when I would be able to come in.

    Has anyone had an experience with this and been given help? I’m just not sure where to turn or what to do. I hate going back to a doctor just to be made to feel foolish.
