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 …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

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 …

For anyone else that just burns down there, Acidosis?

For anyone else that just burns down there, Acidosis?

Post  fairymoond84 on Wed Jan 30, 2013 1:46 am

Hi all, first let me start out by saying that my only symptom is burning down there. I posted a few times on here about what I think what caused me to out of the blue just start burning down there. I have noticed a few things. Every time I have really bad heartburn, I burn really bad. So when I control that, the burning isn't as bad. I also noticed that foods cause me to burn more. I think that I have way to much acids in my body, so I looked it up.

"Acidosis is a condition in which there is too much acid in the body fluids."
This is why I think that all my body fluids feel like acid. Like my period, pee and discharge.

I looked up ways to treat acidosis and this is the easiest way that I found:


Natural Help for Acidosis

Acidosis is the term used to describe a situation in which there is an excessive quantity of acid within the tissue fluids of the body. As a result, the concentration of hydrogen ions within the body is greater than average leading to a subsequent drop in pH. Acidosis drains the body's energy reserves, weakening the immune system. It can also lead to cardiovascular damage, chronic fatigue and aching muscles due to lactic acid buildup. Luckily, there are simple, inexpensive, natural treatments for acidosis.


Baking Soda
Once of the most common causes of acidosis is development of lowered pH through an excessive loss of bicarbonate, generally as a result of renal disease. The body keeps a natural supply of bicarbonate reserves to help maintain the pH balance of the blood. When these reserves are depleted, acid begins to build up in the system. To help the system readjust, drink 2 cups of water with 1 Tbsp. of baking soda mixed in. Sodium bicarbonate is the technical name for baking soda. It is alkaline by nature and can help to neutralize the excessive acid in the body.

Water
Drink at least eight glasses of water each day to prevent acidosis, as this helps dilute any amount of acid in the system and it helps flush toxins from the system through the kidneys. Combine water drinking with light exercise, such as walking, to help remove acid waste from the body via perspiration.

Diet
Diet can also impact the levels of acid in the body. The typical Western diet is high in foods which cause the body to produce excess acid, such as dairy products, meat and eggs. Eat more foods which create an alkaline dietary response, such as fresh vegetables, fruits and honey. Reduce intake of processed sugar, coffee, soda and baked goods made with refined white flour. These changes can reduce the acid in the body and also improve overall health.

I'm going to give this all a try and see what happens. Hopefully it works and it will be a plus to stop with the soda intake.

You know...that sounds just like me. I'm going to try this...because my symptom is constant burning in that area, and I also get similar symptoms to yours. Mine is there all the time....this is why I'm wondering if mine is more yeast or acid related rather than nerve pain, as most people on here only seem to have a problem when it comes to sex, where as mine is there all the time, particularly if my diet is not good....

Hi Ladies

I have suffered with vulvadynia for a few years now, but I used to be completely normal, pain free the lot! The pain I get during intercourse is horrific, and I get on and off symptoms of paining and discomfort randomly during the day or week.

But I have noticed in the last two years that I have been getting lots of heartburn and acid, etc. and its on and off. I notice the burning more when I am dehydrated and I BURN terribly down there!! So its definitely linked to diet. Unfortunately, I love red wine, but I when ever I drink it I suffer with terrible burning pain the next day.

May I ask if either of you ever it a funny taste in your mouth or funny smell in your nose when you get lots of acid?

There's also a Low Oxalate diet, so that may useful to you. I've tried to do it, but it's easier said that done, lol, too hard to stick to Crying or Very sad

Have you ever been prescribed any anti-acids tablets from your GP??

I've been taking my moms prescription heartburn meds and when I take them daily, my burning down there isn't as bad. There is also days when I don't have any burning at all. When it comes to sex, I have noticed a few things, sorry it may get a tiny bit detailed, when he goes to deep and hard I burn really bad, and when his hair gets in, it feels like its cutting the walls of my vagina. That is something else I posted about on here. I use to get a lot of yeast infections, and I would take the yeast infection pills. So I think from years of taking that med has ate away at my vagina walls, causing them to be sensitive, that is also why every time fluids like pee, period or discharge hits it, it burns like crazy. Plus it doesn't help that the fluids are very acidity. Or it could even be the acid in the fluids that are eating away at the walls of my vagina. The foods I eat and drink have gotten way worse these past few years. So I think its all related to foods. Like I said, I only have burning. I don't have muscle pain or anything like that. Even though the burning is very painful at times. The month of February I am going to really cut down on the soda and the bad foods I eat. And try the daily intake of the baking soda and water and antacids. Can't hurt to try it out. I looked into the Low Oxalate diet and I was thinking, its like not even eating. The list of foods to avoid was ridiculous.

Me too...I have found that the burning gets worse depending on what I've been eating and drinking...so I'm really going to start being careful with my diet...it's hard but I have to think...what do I want...this doughnut which will make me happy for 5 minutes...or to be pain free and to be able to have a normal sex life like everyone else...? My burning is there pretty constant, so would make me not even attempt penetrative sex in the first place....seems common sense not to if you've got burning and pain down there????? But I really want to get this sorted once and for all. Another thing is I have pernicious anaemia, and I have found that the pain reduces greatly when I am on B12 injections.

Update

Post  fairymoond84 on Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:17 pm

I truly believe that I burn down there because of Acidosis. I tend to get pretty lazy at routine but I have noticed that when I am burning and I do the Baking Soda & Water, the burning does stop. I have also noticed that if I do the BS & water before I eat spicy foods or foods that are high in acids, I don't burn afterwards. So I believe I have a solution to my burning problems. Which is FOODS that are high in acids. Which is basically a lot of foods that have a high amount of acids. Right after I eat anything with ketchup or pasta sauce, I burn and I burn bad. But if I drink the BS & water, a few minutes later I am fine. So if you are like me and just burn down there, try the BS & Water.
