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 …

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 …

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.

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

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 …

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation.

Hi everyone!

Maybe someone can help me or relate with my symptoms. In July 2012 I started to feel like I had a yeast infection / UTI. I was generally uncomfortable down below and had painful urination and increased frequency. I went to my gynecologist who ran all possible tests and said there was nothing at all wrong with me. She told me I was allergic to something and to wear loose fitting clothes. I cut out most soaps and switched to mild laundry detergent. It helped a little bit but did I still have painful symptoms.

I used to have a vibrant sex life but now have not even wanted too due to this. Also, does anyone experience clitoral pain as well as the burning / stinging around vulvar region? I feel like sometimes my clitoris is extremely painful to the touch and then the next day it won't be. This is so strange! Can anyone relate? I think that somehow nerves were damaged during sex one day?

Thanks for your support! Smile

schaaram,

Welcome to the forum!

I never experienced painful urination or anything like that with vulvodynia. That sounds more like a UTI or bladder infection like you said above. The clitoral pain and burning/ stinging I have had before. I also experienced spasms at times. It almost felt like little shocks or something. Weird.

Sex could do some damage if you're doing it too rough. Most of the time, a sure fire sign of vulvodynia is having constant yeast infections. Have you had this problem ?? Has a gyno. diagnosed you with vulvodynia?

One this you can try is lidocaine cream. It numbs out the area you put it on giving temporary relief. See if your gyno. will prescribe it to you, it really does help. If you do end up getting it just make sure you mix it with a little lubricant. Alone the lidocaine can cause burning until it numbs the area, causing you to feel worse until it works its numbing magic.

Hi!

YES! I have the clitoral pain like you mention. It feels like I am over stimulated when I haven't been touched at all. So strange and the next day it is gone. Mine can be worse just before or after my period. What do you use for your clitoral pain? My doctor prescribed a 5% lidocaine cream that I slather on there and it usually takes the edge off.

At this point, aside from labia majora pain, I have constant urethra irritation. It feels like I need to pee a little, but not from my bladder. Almost like when you've finished peeing, and then a little more comes out. I've been tested for UTIs twice, and both were negative.

I don't know if my vulva pain is related to the urethra pain as my doctors are still trying to figure it out.

Hi carby148,

It sounds like you could possibly have internal cystitis or IC. I posted a link below that tells you a little bit about the condition. Hope this helps!

IC was the next thing I was going to say, it sounds like you have classic signs.
