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 …

Somebody please help me...

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 …

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 …

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

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25


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


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 …

Recently Diagnosed which has motivated my research study

Tue Mar 06, 2018 4:54 pm by ebclose2free

Hi everyone,

I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

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 …

New and desperate for advice

Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

Ovary issues!

Post  Mish on Fri Oct 12, 2012 12:34 am

Hi everyone!
I'm wondering whether anyone else has period issues as well? I bleed all the time, pill changes don't help and I get bad cramps to the point that if I'm off the pill I vomit and faint. No doctors can help - does anyone else have this issue combined with vulvodybia and IC?

Hi Mish

From my mri 2 weeks ago a cyst full of blood was found on my right ovary and my pain is on the right side high up at the top of my vagina coincidence? My useless gyno said it is nothing to do with the cyst! Im confused! I have had very having painful periods for 4 years and bleed for 10 - 12 days! When this pain or v happened at the beginning of aug i missed my period but had a kind of brown discharge which kind of exploded at the point when the pain was so horrific i couldnt do anything at all. My 2 periods since have been extra light which is unusal for me. I told my gyno but she just looked vacant she is useless. So im like you is it connected is it that which is causing the problem? Is it hormonal? Ever since this has flared up my face is also covered with acne! Im at my wits end with it seen 5 doctors now they are useless!

You sound like me! I first went to a gyno in my teens and he made a joke about me still being a virgin (useless). I went again in my early 20s and a cyst was found and my right ovary was enlarged but they couldn't understand why or how it relates. For years now I've just put up with a period every fortnight and brown discharge in between. One gyno suggested I have endometriosis and when I read the symptoms it fits but like you, I think it's all related somehow. The problem was the gyno that was going to address the endo insisted I get a Myrina and I wanted to do research first (I have enough issues down there as it is) but they wOuldnt address one without the other so I have just put up with it. Perhaps a gyno who works with v could get it a bit better?? Who's this Marek guy?
