Re: 12 year old with vaso vagal



The same thing happend to me at that age and yes, i do have VV. I tried to insert first tampon and had VV episode. The problem continues to this day every time I have annual pelvic exam. Apparently, the cervix is especially sensitive and the slightest touch can lead to VV even in people who don't normally experience VV episodes. I do use tampons now, I think that it was just the stress of the "event", so tell her to keep trying...
