Why can't you grow out of vaginismus or dyspsreunia? Do I have to use dilators? Don't want to, rather take endep if needed

Why can't you grow out of vaginismus or dyspsreunia? Do I have to use dilators? Don't want to, rather take endep if needed

It would be great to be able to take a quick-fix pill but, for some women, their muscles don't release with just endep (amtriptyline). Dilators can be really helpful but suggest talk to the team looking after you about your concerns: dilators are less likely to work for you if you don't feel comfortable using them. ...Read more

Can one feel mostly happy and anxious-free but still experience suicdal thoughts? On endep (amitriptyline) 10 for 6 months.

The medicines can make you feel ok because that's how they work, by increasing the "happy" neurotransmitters in your body.
