New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

vaginal cream

Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:46 pm by LindafromNJ

I have been given ABC cream to start using for my condition. This is gabapentin, amitriptyline and baclofen cream. Has anyone tried this. Also has anyone used lidocaine. My doctor told me not to use it. It is so sore at the vaginal opening. Has anyone used it there. Please respond!!

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.

The latest on the essential oils

Post  lavrose on Wed Oct 31, 2012 8:28 pm

So, I realize now that I must "switch" up the oils, in order for them to be effective, as my body seems to get used to them after awhile. Lately Ive been doing 2 drops lavender 2 drops rosemary, 3 drops tea tree suppositories for the last 2 weeks up to 3 times a day, and it didnt seem like I feeling any better, worse actually. I figured I might have"burnt" it in there, as Ive done it before, which means I have to lay off the oils for a few days, and c what Happenes. Sometimes I go back to normal, sometimes I dont. Then I have to try again.
Vuvlvodynia is very time consuming.

I never know what my vagina is gonna do day to day. Its so hard, because its something I have absolutely no control over. Its the most unpredictable thing, ever. Just like my Love life, anywhoo...
So something strange happened. I spent the whole day feeling AWFUL!! Sex was the last thing on my mind for the duration. I felt Burned, as Ive been slamming it with oils for the last 2 weeks, almost 3 times a day. I knew, if I layed off of them, for a few days, Id still feel bad, and have to do it again, not knowing if it was gonna get better, or I should try something else. Its so confusing and frustrating. Ive gone months like this before. With Goldenseal and grapefruit seed extract. Its hideous. Meanwhile things are getting tense with my boyfriend as Ive not been able to be sexual.

I decided to try some eucalyptus oil. One drop on my finger, and then I layed down and kind of rubbed it all on the inside as deep as I could, evenly distributed.
At first IT BURNED like the Dickens, but then after 30 minutes I felt 100% back to normal!!
Seriously. Like Normal. Not burnt or sore or anything. Normal. Normal. Not burned. Not "wierd" or "Off". Normal. And not irritated. Like I could have rough sex and it would not hurt me. It felt completely normal again, and great. I ended having awesome pain free sex 3 times with my boyfriend last nite, and we havnt had sex in 2 weeks.

Strange., I didnt think I was any where near ready for sex. and within the hour!!!
Ive had this happened to me before. Back in the early days when tea tree oil used to work for me, and was my "go to" oil. One application and an hour later Im good to go.
Geranium as well. Where I felt awful , and I didnt want anyone or anything near the area, and the next day I feel awesome, great, and ready to go all nite!!

But I seem to have developed a resistance to the Geranium aswell.
I did the Eucalyptus again this morning, just on the finger, and it BURNED even worse, (cuz it was sore from the sexual activity last nite) to wear I was twitching and hoping around on my seat, but it went away in 30 minutes and I feel great (normal) again...so

I have placed an order with Aura Cacia, for Palma Rosa, Mhytle, Patchouili, Peppermint, White Thyme, and Bergamont oil. Gonna try all them at different times. Read up online they can all be used for womens complaints, vaginal yeast infections etc.

It seems Vulvodynia is a process. Day to day, I take it, day by day, and I learn something new everyday.
Its hard tho. My current boyfriend says I smell like Bug spray and its not very sexy, to smell bug spray while gettin it on with your girl, plus its messy, with the coconut oil.
Whatever. Hes ignorant. I Love him. But he knows nothing, anyway...
He also has a large member (not to be too graphic). Which honestly, I mean its nice and all, but when you have Vulvodynia, its REALLY difficult. It seems Im even MORE prone to problems since Ive been with him.

another frustrating thing is. If you have Interstitial cystitus. The oils can irritate that too, which is also been happening to me lately, as Ive been on them nonstop for awhile.

UGH...so Miserable.

Good Luck, ladies, and GOD speed!!
