Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Recovered from Vulvodynia

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

Suggestions for reducing inflammation?

Post  penfebruary on Mon Sep 17, 2012 9:14 pm

Hi guys, for most of the summer my pain levels have been pretty intermittent and lowish (yay) but I've noticed that soreness on touch around my vulva and on the left hand side just inside my vestibule doesn't go away, even though it doesn't hurt me unless i poke it.
I'm just wondering if anyone can throw in their suggestions for ways of reducing inflammation, in the hopes that it helps in the long run. At the moment I take 35mg ami which seems to help with the unprovoked pain and I have lidocaine gel for if it gets extra burny, which can sometimes help, but I'd like to try and try some things that work to reduce the inflammation rather than just mask it.
Thanks x

Have you tried an anti-inflammatory diet? Lots of omega-3's, no red meat. It might be worth a shot if you haven't. It seems to help me.

Hi, thanks for your reply! I'll look into it but I'm not sure it could help me much, as I am practically a pescetarian apart from the odd bit of chicken just out of personal taste anyway.

I had the same exact symptoms and tried diets, vitamins, creams, xanex... it turned out that my pelvic floor muscles are extremely tight not allowing oxygen or blood flow which produces lactic acid and burns your vulva... have you ever had your muscles examined? I didn't believe it either, I thought I had an infection living under my skin but I have been doing pelvic floor physical therapy and using a suppository valium for only 2 weeks and I feel so much relief it is amazing.

Thanks for posting that junobug85 I've been told the same thing about my red sore skin in the vestibule and I knew it was possible but always great to hear from a live sufferer so thanks. Very Happy
