Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

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.

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.
