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 …

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 …

Can A Cut In Vestibule cause Vulvodynia?

Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:07 am by rockylife

Can a cut in the vestibule area cause vulvodynia? Is it possible that some nerve a were damaged that’s why I feel this pain in my area without visible lesions?

vaginal valium/alcohol

vaginal valium/alcohol

Post  hopingforacure on Fri Jan 04, 2013 5:01 am

ok, first ever post here. I am 34, married 10 years, 2 kids. I started having problems at age 30 when my first child was 18 mos old. She was a C-section with no labor. After many doc visits to get anti-yeast, and antibiotics. I am now with a new doctor that says that my muscles at 6 o'clock are too tight and my skin is very thin and sensitive. So now we are doing estrace cream every night and recently started valium 10mg pill but vaginally. I had sex but it was still very painful but less painful. I had a visit with a PT person so explained how they tested the muscles to see if they truly relax etc. Problem is they are 2.5 hrs away from me one way and I would need to go at least once a week. They then tell me there is someone in my town but I am not sure she is qualified. You know one of those people who do things b/c they will be the only one in town.
So my questions are: anyone tried valium? did it help? you put in a couple inches correct? tried estrace? did it help? AND I WAS NOT HAVING A FLARE UNTIL I WENT DANCING/DRINKING. Does alcohol seem to affect your flares? I drink like Smirnoff girl beers.
Please help. I can't exercise and I want to be fit and in shape. This condition totally affects my mental state as well.

Estrace didn't help me at all. I actually have a random flare with wine it lasts a few minutes and goes away. But I just had a vestibulectomy and it still happens so im not sure how much that has to do with v. I checked that out on another site and it's a common problem not related to v (finally something others can relate to). Pt helped me a lot but the skin was still to sensitive so I opted for surgery we'll see I'd this does the trick. But with estrace some people do respond positively my advice is to try it and see what works for you because were all different unfortunately.
