Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

BAD REACTION TO CHLORINE IN A HOT TUB!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

Post  Cambria on Wed Dec 19, 2012 5:27 pm

LADIES AVOID HOT TUBS AT ALL COST!!!

I have V and last Thursday I stupidly went in a hot tub/jacuzzi thinking it would help relax me. How wrong I was!!!! I was in the hot tub for about 45 mins and straight after had a quick shower to flush the area. Felt fine until a couple of hours later when I started feeling really sore, more sore than usual like a stinging rawness. Got home and got in the bath to try and flush the area some more. Next day still felt this raw kind of soreness which is worse than my normal v. Saturday still feeling the same, but went out shopping all day and drank plenty of water. Then Sunday, started to get worse. I was sitting on frozen peas and alternating with a hot water bottle every 5 mins or so, which seemed to help at the time. Monday the soreness was so bad I didn't go to work. Tuesday (yesterday) I attempted to go into work but was sent home as could not sit down or walk properly I was so sore! Got an emergency appointment with my GP that night who said the chlorine has probably irritated the nerve endings and could take weeks if not months to settle down. She has given me 1% HC cream but I put it on last night and it stung the entire night. Not sure whether this is normal? I am also massaging emulsifying ointment into the area and having tepid baths. I asked my doctor why it was getting worse and she didn't know why! The entire area is red raw!!! Labia menora, labia minora, clitoris, vulva, vaginal entrance you name it!!! Its blood red!!!! I have never had pain in my labia menora before, so I know this is something to do with the Chlorine as it is the only thing I did different but I can't even wear pants! I'm also on my period but can't wear anything cause it's that sore!!

Please, has anyone else had a reaction like this and if so, what did they do the relieve the symptoms??? How long did it last?? I'm going out of my mind and it's all my fault for going in the hot tub!!!! No

I sometimes get like this after too much sitting or certain clothes and what I do is mix the 1% hydrocortisone cream with vaseline and apply that for a few days but it is worth trying a test patch seeing as you're so raw. It might be the area is burnt and that would likely mean applying nothing for a while to let it calm down. Maybe backing off from all topical treatments and giving it a while might be the only suitable option. Sorry not to be more helpful and hopefully it will soon settle back down.

The best thing that has worked for me is Aquaphor ointment. It does not irratate me at all. I put in on everday after I shower. It helps soothes that area and helps when I'm sitting or wearing pants.
I hope you heal and your pain goes away soon.

This is interesting to me because my V started after spending the day in a hot tub and swimming pool. I refuse to go into a pool or hot tub now. Thanks for letting me know it isn't just me!
