Nicole Moore was shocked to discover that she had fallen pregnant as she was still a virgin. 

The 20-year-old couldn’t have sex with her boyfriend as it was too painful for her and she realised something wasn’t quite right as it was too painful for her to even use a tampon. Nicole wasn’t aware at the time that she had vaginismus which causes the vaginal walls to constrict involuntarily which is why having sex was painful and difficult for her.

"We tried but it was impossible. I didn't understand why it couldn't happen," she said.

"But doctors told me I was fine, so I just believed for a while that there was something wrong with me."

Despite not being able to have penetrative sex, the couple found other ways to be intimate.

"One day at work I started getting terrible heartburn and sore breasts. My boss at the time, who was a close friend and knew about my situation, said she thought I could be pregnant," Nicole said.

"I laughed and said there was no way, as I was still a virgin and never had penetrative sex...But she said it was possible if there had been any fluids near my vagina, despite not actually having intercourse.”

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

Nicole was worried and wondered how she could give birth when she hasn’t even had sex before. She was also nervous that her boyfriend would think that she had cheated on him but luckily he believed her.

Nicole struggled to get medical professionals to believe her and remembers when a professional couldn’t even insert a finger inside of her. When she told the professional that she hadn’t had sex they replied  'Don't be ridiculous, of course you have'

Four months into Nicole’s pregnancy she was finally diagnosed with vaginismus and she lost her virginity a month later. She gave birth to her daughter Tilly with no complications. Tilly’s father is no longer with Nicole however she says that he is still incredibly supportive.

“I still suffer with vaginismus but I now know how to deal with it and it definitely isn’t as bad...I still can’t do certain things, like insert a tampon, but I feel very fortunate that I am now able to have a normal sex life."

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

“So many people still tell me I’m the Virgin Mary which really makes me laugh. It was crazy.”
