Tilly, portrayed as a baby, was born without any problems, according to her infatuated mother Nicole

Nicole announced that nurses would not believe her when she stated that she did not have sex during her pregnancy checkups before she was diagnosed with vaginismus

Although she never thought it possible, she became pregnant – even though she was still a virgin

‘I did a pregnancy test on my lunch break that work day and it was positive

I was just thinking how on earth am I going to give birth to this baby if I couldn’t even have intercourse

‘I was afraid my partner would think I cheated on him because it seemed so impossible

‘But luckily he knew me and my body and never doubted me for a second

‘So many people still tell me I am the Virgin Mary which really makes me laugh It was crazy’

Nicole and her graduation from Tilly Nicole openly revealed that she still couldn’t insert a tampon into her vagina because of her condition, but said she was grateful that she could lead a normal life

‘My boyfriend at the time often had to come to appointments with me to explain that we really didn’t have sex

‘I remember getting checked out at the hospital and not being able to do an internal exam because the nurse couldn’t insert her finger

‘I tried to explain to her that I hadn’t had sex yet and she said to me “Of course don’t be ridiculous that you have sex”

‘I had a routine check-up with the doctors for a pregnancy-related illness and was seen by chance by a student doctor who had recently examined vaginismus

Tilly as baby Nicole finally got the help she needed after being diagnosed and found that she had to use dilators to overcome her vaginismus

Nicole admitted that treating her vaginismus was frustrating, stressful, and disturbing, but that she stuck to it and was able to have penetrative sex when she was five months pregnant

‘I told him about my struggles and he told me that I probably had this condition

‘I finally realized that there was nothing wrong with me and that I actually had an illness’

After her diagnosis, Nicole was referred to a therapist who specialized in vaginismus and who could teach her ways to overcome the disease

With this help, she was finally able to lose her virginity and have penetrative sex five months pregnant

Not only do many have difficulty having vaginal sex, they also have difficulty using a tampon

However, vaginismus does not necessarily affect a woman’s ability to become aroused or enjoy other forms of sexual contact

If a woman suspects she may have vaginismus, she should make an appointment with her family doctor

Treatment is usually therapy that helps a woman understand her feelings about sex and her body. Relaxation techniques such as mindfulness can also help

In more severe cases, vaginal exercisers, which are shaped like tampons and come in a variety of sizes, can help a woman get used to inserting something into her vagina

And although she was afraid of giving birth, Nicole’s little girl Tilly, now eight, was born without any problems

She said, “With the help of the therapist, I started using dilators and was able to see a light at the end of the tunnel

‘It wasn’t easy. The process was frustrating, stressful, and disturbing, but I stuck with it and eventually got to have sex for the first time while I was pregnant

‘My daughter’s father and I are no longer together, but he always supported me after my diagnosis

‘I still have vaginismus, but now I know how to deal with it, and it’s definitely not that bad

‘I still can’t do certain things like inserting a tampon, but I feel very happy that I am now able to have a normal sex life

‘Tilly is definitely my little miracle. We have the best life together and having her was the best thing I’ve ever done’
