Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Hello everyone,

Many years ago i was struck with V, it was painful and got worst and worst, eventually i could not sit, could not stand, could not walk, could not swim in a swimming pool anymore. I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

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 …

Lidocaine with condoms?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:44 pm by AEM1

Hi everyone! My doctor just prescribed me a topical lidocaine to administer before sex, but I forgot to ask if it is okay to use with condoms. Has anyone else used this before and know it is safe to use with condoms? Thanks! Very Happy
Unrelated, but I just started Lyrica a few weeks ago...no changes yet, but I'm hopeful something will come out of it. 3 years with vulvodynia and unable to have sex …

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 …

Is this what I have?

Is this what I have?

Post  Daisybun on Sat Oct 06, 2012 4:53 pm

Ok - about 6 years ago after a particularly stressful time I began have frequent urination problems, which caused a lot of burning and stinging. I had a cystoscopy and was given meds for the frequency. I used the calendula cream, acidophilus and calcium citrate, also went on citalopram to help as I began to suffer with panic attacks.
Anyway after a few months everything settled and I went back to normal. Until I had a UTI at the beginning of September. I was given two lots of antibiotics, then treated for thrush. The irritation is back - it feels itchy and just generally uncomfortable. Have been told to use vagisil have used vaseline which kind of helps. Last time i used aqueous cream too.
I do a lot of driving and sitting for my job - some days are better than others - when I don't focus on it seems fine when I panic I feel worse.
I think have had flare ups before when I was younger - they always passed after a few weeks or couple of months.
Am beginning to have panic attacks again and feel like i don't want to go out - not good I have a job that requires lots of driving and sitting. I don't have pain as such just irritation, and at times a kind of numbness with mild pins and needles - then an itchy sensation.
Hope that it will pass. I am back on the frequency meds and have increased citalopram - just afraid that I will slip back. Also fearful that i will have to live with this forever.

Hi Daisybun

Just a thought, have you considered or been checked out for a trapped or compressed nerve(s) or muscular problems in your pelvis and/or back?? Your symptoms sound very similar and that might be the cause for you? Especially if you do a lot of sitting and driving - your muscles adjust to that scrunched posture and then when you do something else it can cause problems. Problems with the pelvic floor muscles can also cause urinary problems.
