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 …

No pain during ovulation?

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?
