When I was molested by a teacher in 4th grade, I had to sit on his lap many hours each day. In response, I contracted my pelvic muscles tightly to try to elevate myself off his lap and that may have begun a muscle pattern that I continue today. As I have mentioned in other posts, chronic muscle tightness can compress nerves and cut down on blood flow that keeps your vulva healthy.
I am reading "The Body Keeps The Score" which is excellent and focuses on the physical effects and the physical healing of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am also considering doing EMDR - a therapy based in rapid eye movement to access and resolve trauma. I guess I am just posting this because after many years of dismissing this part of my history and saying that I was over it, I am now exploring the idea.
