NEW member - I want my life back

Thu Apr 21, 2016 8:35 am by LouR

Since before Christmas I have had problems and after antibiotics, OTC pessaries and everything else, last month the burning pain became so unbearable that all I could do was stay in bed.  I have been taking 25mg Amitriptyline now for 2 weeks, which I think has taken away the burning, but I still have constant soreness at the opening of my vagina.  I have an appointment with the Gynae on …

Did your doctor tell you that the birth control pill caused it?

Sat Apr 23, 2016 12:29 am by orangelight

Hey Everyone,

I started having pain after taking yaz birth control pill for 5 months, that was 6 years ago. My doctor said Yaz was one of the worst offenders, and that the 'low estrogen' pills like it cause the most vestibulodynia. Apparently the estrogen in bcp is from horse urine and highly potent, and it shuts down your body's production of testosterone (by increasing sex hormone binding …

New here- my story

Wed Apr 20, 2016 6:25 pm by MelisaD

Hi all,

I'm 28, from Australia. I've been diagnosed with crappy condition for 5 years but I suspect I've been suffering for much longer. I'm too sure what triggered it in the beginning. When I was initially diagnosed it was a continuous pain, anything and everything would aggravate it, but after taking endep it reliever it to a point where only provoked pain through sex or examination.
I've been …

New member introduction :)

Wed Apr 20, 2016 12:56 pm by gingercat2426

So... I guess everyone has their story but at the end of the day they all have something in common.
For me, it started in October 2012. I had been with my partner for about 18 months and all was going well I had just come back from a month long trip and I was so excited to see him again. But upon penetration it hurt, it had never hurt like that before.

For a while I thought maybe it was the …

Sexual Positions

Mon Apr 04, 2016 4:59 pm by Samuella


I have vulvodynia, with pain from 10 to 2 on the entrance to my vagina. I was wondering if anyone, with a similar problem as me, could give me advice on which sexual positions they have tried and which ones have either worked or failed miserably. I would love to be more intimate with my boyfriend, but it always seems to hurt. We have had a bit of success with what cosmopolitan calls …

New Here -- this is my story

Mon Apr 04, 2016 10:45 pm by calidreaming999

Hi everyone,

I am 28 years old and have been suffering from what I think is vulvodynia for 7 years now. It's been a very challenging 7 years Sad Especially listening to all my friends have normal, fun and adventurous sex lives whereas I am too afraid to even have sex for the pain it will cause and all the emotional blocks I have up now. But let me start from the beginning.

When I was 21 years …

Hi all,  I love you 
I'm new here!
I'm a junior in college and was recently diagnosed with VVS. I had been taking birth control for the past year and 2 months before getting diagnosed, since it was the only thing that worked for my skin. Of course, I'm one of those people who hates hates hates blood, so I would always skip the sugar pills and start a new pack.
I got a yeast infection once, and …

new member re: Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD)

Tue Mar 29, 2016 7:00 pm by clencher35

I am new here and this is my first post. For those of you in the PFD school, I might have had a breakthrough of late that I want to share. A while back I bought a Tens Unit the idea being that I might shock my pelvic floor into some sort of 'reset', but I never could figure out where to put the pads to access it. While I was studying about that I came across two articles that, though not …
