For the vaginismus patient, a setback is like getting a flat tire while on a journey to a wonderful life.
Very often one need to experience setbacks in order to achieve success! The important thing to remember is that a setback does not mean that you have to start all over again or give up on your goal or dream to have pain-free sexual intimacy with your loved one. All setbacks are opportunities to learn about one’s self. One needs to recognize what caused the setback and then have a plan to get back on-track.
