Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

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 …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

No pain during ovulation?

Post  katie220 on Thu Oct 04, 2012 7:20 pm

I noticed that I have no pain during ovulation. The pain is at it's worst after and right before my period. Does anyone know anything about this? Is there a type of birth control I could go on that would eliminate the pain? I figured there would be because the pain seems to be hormonal.

thanks.

Re: No pain during ovulation?

Post  Loulou on Thu Oct 04, 2012 9:24 pm

Hi Kate

I think the pain might be hormonal for some women. I wondered about this in my case too, especially as i'm 48 and probably peri-menopausal. My pattern is slightly different to yours, I have my best days just before my period and the first couple of days (when i'm actually bleeding) - in fact over the last couple of cycles these good days have actually been so good i felt normal! but then i always seem to have a flare up from about day 3/4 of my period. The flare ups are not severe (more a slight soreness/irritation or 'thrushy' feeling) as my pain levels have come down hugely in recent months due to regular chiro/yoga/pilates -yay cheers , but the flares do linger for several days afterwards, followed by variable days (some good, some not) until i get close to my period again when things improve again. Thrush tests have come back negative (tho i haven't been tested recently) and in any case i don't get the traditional itching or cottage cheese discharge so i'm pretty sure myself its not thrush it just feels 'thrushy' if that makes sense!

So I had my hormones tested recently and was told they were within normal ranges and 'no further action required' but my estrogen did look high so i'm not sure, i still think there might be something in this i'm just not sure what to do next....

What i would say tho is that some women find that birth control pills might have caused their vvd so just make sure you get whatever tests you can, do research, get good specialist advice before you go down that route.

One of the things i'm wondering about is whether or how hormones affect the vagina and uterus. I do internal massage and this seems to help and i've noticed that when i'm having a flare up I always feel very tight or 'closed in' in my vagina and sometimes I can feel the top of my cervix. Maybe the hormonal cycle affects the internal organs and muscles this way??? I've been trying to research it on t'interweb and it seems that the cervix does move up and down during the monthly cycle. So i'm not sure if it is hormonal (ie a hormone imbalance creates 'abnormal' movement and therefore pain) and/or a muscular problem (i.e tight pelvic floor, pelvic or spinal alignment etc)??

Katie,

I have the same experience. Before and after period is unbearable.
I feel the best around ovulation. I want to have my hormones tested, but doctors have not been very encouraging.
I am 29 and was normal until last year. I try to track my symptoms.....so fed up with it all.

Re: No pain during ovulation?

Post  Kate1981 on Fri Oct 26, 2012 4:01 pm

I am exactly the same. The pain is much better during ovulation and really bad before and during my period. Ive asked to get my hormones tested as I have very bad acne and im 31 always had bad skin but since the v it has been much worse. I also get very bad PMT I feel down and the slightest thing makes me mad and then teary. I asked my GP to test them but she doesnt know how!!! Great!!! I feel very dry compared to how I used to feel which suggests my estrogen levels could be low. There was an article yesterday in the Mirror (UK) which talked about femaile pain down there and how doctors say there is nothing they can do. It says it is mostly down to estrogen defficiency which caused dryness and thining of the vaginal walls and if it is not treated quickly can lead to nerve pain which I have now got! I have a sharp pain which feels like it is the right side of my vagina sometimes it feels sharp, sometimes i have burning at the back entrance and sometimes its just an itchy dull feeling! Are your symtoms the same?
