Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

Hello!

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

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 …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without?

I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

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 …

Childbirth - Vulvodynia - Premenopause :'(

Childbirth - Vulvodynia - Premenopause :'(

Post  Pink Pain on Fri Oct 19, 2012 3:09 pm

Hello there, my name is Ela Smile
I'm 43 yrs old living just outside London. I found this forum because I recently started to suffer from the terrible Vulvodynia.
It took me 15 years, two children to discover through this forum that my ON and OFF pain could be related ( Question ) also to giving birth to my son, who is now 15 yrs old.
His birth was very difficult. He weighted 9lbs and 3oz. His head was pressing against my bladder. I lost a lot of blood. I was told I was carrying a small child. I'm quite petite so having delivered such a big baby was a real shock to me.
After giving birth I was fine for 2 years. I so decided to try for a second child and just then my first flare of pain came. I was devastated in total agony didn't know what to do. After many visits to my family doctor I was told to go to a special woman clinic to do see a Gyno. There I had several tests to rule out possible infections and illnesses. The Gyno who saw me at the time came out with a total new word to me which I never heard before VULVODYNIA.
I then started to check the internet found another forum not as good as this one though. I read so many depressing stories I could have easily jump from the first bridge.
The gyno who told me about the new condition mentioned that it wasn't such a good idea to have another baby. I could have suffered even more as a result of a new child. Thy gyno never expressed any ideas as to why I could experienced more pain. In other words I was never told it was a nerve/muscles problems. It would have been touch and go a real trial. I tried for my second in a moment of no pain and managed to sail through pregnancy with the arrival of my baby daughter. During the pregnancy and afterwards I had no real vaginal pain. Throughout the years I managed to control my Vulvodynia (when it came) thanks my 10 mg of Amitriptyline which I only take when in real pain.
The problem now is that I missed my period. As I know that I'm not pregnant I could be starting on an early menopause. Menopause = vaginal dryness :-((( My Vulvodynia is now at its peek. I feel that I need to increase my tablets and will go to speak to a new Gyno soon. My fears is that doctors are very ignorant when it comes to this condition. You get more help from forums like this. So far I read lots helpful advices which I'm going to try thanks reading your stories.
I hope that mine will help to put an answer (not to everyone of course but at least to some) to a terrible condition so underrated by so many doctors Sad
