Did you know that there is an official Vaginismus Awareness Day? On September 15, 2015, Sh! created this day to encourage open conversations about painful sex. This special day helps people with Vaginismus feel less alone by raising awareness and understanding about this condition. Let us all show our support by spreading the word, educating ourselves, and being there for those who need it. Together, we can make a difference and help eliminate the pain and isolation.
We are excited to invite you to our in-person event designed specifically for women and vulva owners living with Vaginismus. Our panel of supportive therapists, educators, campaigners, and artists have firsthand experience with Vaginismus and are here to offer their support and insights.
Join us for an empowering and informative evening where we will discuss the physical and psychological impact of painful sex. We want to create a safe and inclusive space where you can feel heard and supported. We look forward to seeing you there!
