Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

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 …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico


I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Hey everyone! My names Kel and I'm 31yrs old. I live in a town called Scunthorpe which is in North Lincs, Uk.
I hope anyone who reads this is well and happy? I'm kinda new to this, I've had what can only be described as migraine of the vagina with all the trimmings for 8 weeks now. After being laughed at and declared a nut job by my doctor who reluctantly referred me to a gyno I cried all the way to my local GUm clinic who ran all the tests they could which came back negative, thye were lovely to me though and examined me, which is more than my doctor did. They found two tiny tiny blisters inside which they swabed and tested for herpes, which came back negative, although at the time i felt relief that there was something there i became very depressed shortly afterwards.
My appointment for the gyno finally came round and she was lovely, so understanding even as i cried through the examination. She went out of her way to help me. She prescibed gabapentin and some oestrogen pessaries to take, which so far have helped slightly. She said it wouldnt be an overnight fix but it would help and it gave me some hope of being "Normal" again. Fingers crossed things will get better.
I dont even know what the cause of this was? I swapped contraceptive pills while taking antibiotics for broncitus, plus i guess ive been run down and stressed?
Anyway, if theres any advice anyone can give me? even if its just to say bthings will get better? Ive been off work for 6 weeks and due back soon but im scared to, i havent even been outside except to the docs or gynos. I'm babbling now I know! Hope to hear from someone, take care, Kel x

Hi there.
I read your story. I live in the US. I've had vv for about 5 yrs and I'm 50.
I hope your situation is something that will pass and that you don't really have vulvodynia.
I know It's depressing. I think finding this site will help you. It's nice to know you can talk to others that
can relate. I was really depressed at first but have come along way. Actually I have felt better the past two
weeks than I have in five yrs.
Try to read up and keep going to the doctor untill you get some relief. And don't think that you can't be happy
after this. All of us women on this site deserve love and happiness. We shouldn't be short changed or feel like we
should accept any less because of the condition.
You will get thru this. Your depression will go away and will be able to return to work.
Contact a therapist if you need to. You're very young and have alot of life a head of you.
And you can always come to this site for support and compassion.
We all send you hugs.
Hope you feel better really soon.

Hey! Thank you so much for replying! I'm feeling a lot brighter today so fingers crossed and lets see what tomorrow brings. I really hope that its me talking and not the meds!
You must be really brave to have handled this for so long. How do you cope with things? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've just ordered some spray which is 10% ligdnocaine but i'm unsure wether it would take my skin off and give me more problems!
