Mother’s Day and Infertility after Botox Treatment for Vaginismus

Many of the women that inquiry about Botox treatment for vaginismus have been dealing with their condition for many, many years. With each passing year, they are reminded that their chances of having a family grow slimmer and slimmer. Often, the number one reason to finally seek treatment and overcome vaginismus includes becoming pregnant and starting a family with their partner or husband.

Over the years, many of my treated patients have been successful in having one and two children. One of our patients even had twins! These are always wonderful occasions for my staff and me. We are always so happy to hear from our patients with the good news! There have been many wonderful postings on our VaginismusMD Forum of new babies and pregnancies. What joyous news!
