MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Cool, okay so I'm older than you. Have you found a Dr.? I can def. recommend a PT. There are only two in the metro area that speciailize in V. She is in Decatur. The other one I think is in Alpharetta. I used to keep my horse is Palmetto.

Ok I haven't found anyone who specializes in V. I'm seeing a Gyn and I know more than him. That information would be great. I'm just tired of taking all the pills.

My gyn doesn't specialize in V but she does know about it and the meds usually given. But the PT does specialize in it. Have you determined that yours might be pelvic floor dysfunction? My PT is Laura Higgins and Decatur Hand and Physical Therapy 404-296-8512. I needed a referrel for ins. to help pay, don't know what your situation is. What meds are you on? Did you write your story on here? If not, care to share. Did you want my gyn name also. I do suggest a female gyn, they seem to have much more empathy with us than men do. I've had good gyns who are male and female but I truly believe a good female beats a good male any day because they can identify with us, but the trick here is to get a good one:) Before I went to mine I was seeing a male gyn with many years experience who actually, finally answered yes to my question?". I had to actually find it myself on the internet after weeks of his "treating" me for infection, hormones, etc. Then his only answer was Estrace cream and SHOTs in my twott that he even admitted only works 1/2 the time! No thank you.

I think I did share, but I don't mind doing it here. I was diagnosed with V in 2005 by a urologist. Since then I've been on every drug I think they make. Currently I am on gabapentin 1200mg, effexor 150mg, and lidocaine ointment 5%. It is unprovoked and I want to cry as I'm writing this. My GYN thinks it came from the instruments used for my vaginal hysterectomy in 2001. I've had no shots no mention of pt and no mention of surgery. I can see and feel scar tissue on the left side of the vestibule and that is where my pain radiates from. Everything hurts back and legs included.

Oh and I have IBS which keeps me constipated which has caused thrombosed hemorroids. I am a big body of ailments and I see no relief any time soon.

I'm going to see a new gyn next month. Female. Maybe she will be able to help me.
