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 …

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.

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

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 …

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?
