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 …

Hi All,

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

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci


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 …

He said this is …

Yeast free, IC free, Vulvodynia free, Betadine douche finnally kicked it :)

Post  lavrose on Sun Feb 10, 2013 7:33 pm

Hey guys, just thought Id update on my latest struggle.
I am now newly married, and altho, its been a rough beginning, I feel 100% cured now, and just thought Id share about my new discovery that kicked my latest Vulva/Yeast infection irritation pain in the butt. Betadine douche!!!!!!!!

So simple, I cannot believe Ive overlooked this, this long, and Ive researched and TRIED everything.

The Bladder, IC pain is gone, (thanks to Massive doses of Bactrim). I still had some residual pain, but I guess it was just my bladder healing, cuz its been a few weeks now, and NO PAIN, even during my period this month.

I still had a mild yeast infection and I was attacking it with gelcaps full of horendoucly strong essential oils, 2 to 3 times a day(not recommended). Havnt been able to have sex with my Husband for a month and a half. My cervix was swollen, and the oils were helping but not really working this time, and I was using more and more(again, not recommended) and it just wasnt getting rid of it.
I was using 2 drops of clove, 3 drops eucalyptus, and ylang ylang, and 3 drops bergamont 3 times a day, That is just so wrong!!!!
I remember when even one drop of eucalyptus would make me jump around and dance around the room for a good 5 min, if I put it anywhere near my vag, and now I was putting tons of it in there, and it wasnt burning me, but my flowers were so swollen and I could feel that horrendous pain was still there, I wasnt making progress.
I guess my vagina got immune to the strength of the oils.
In my experience using essential oils, and (in the past Ive had great results) your body or the yeast cells CAN get used to them, so you have to rotate them, but it just seem like this nitemare wasnt ending, and I knew, even if I made this yeast infection go away. I would just get it again, next time I have sex, so I felt like topping myself at times, I was so sad.
So anyway, my Mother, being in her sixties, told me about an old time remedy, Betadine Douche, or Iodine douches. Twice a day for a week to 14 days. Said, it always worked for her., she said she could kick a mild yeast infection (preventative !!!) with just one to 2 douches, ...........she asked me to try that.

Now, Ive always been under the assumption that douches are bad, and in my experience, using peroxide and apple cider vinegar douches, always made my condition worse, so I ALWAYS STAYED WAY AWAY from douches. Plus they always made me dry aswell.
Well, guys not only did it make me better, it has completely cured me. Also, I can even have sex WHILE Im doing treatment, which is also amazing.
Another thing is, now I have something to help me prevent another infection.

Just buy a bottle of providone iodine, (Betadine) at the drugstore for approximately $20 a bottle, and a few boxes of disposable douches. Dump out the liquid, fill the bottle halfway with tap water, and several drops of the Betadine. Make it a very dark red, )make a strong solution) get into the bathtub, and insert douche as far in as it will go, use gentle pressure, etc, etc. Works. Its amazing. Im cured. Thank You God.

God Bless

My Doctor actually discouraged me from using betadine douches as some people can have a really bad reaction to it, (red blistering sores, and irritation) but it actually doesnt bother me at all, and makes me feel relief, and yes, Im still feeling great.

Now all Im doing is inserting a probiotic acidophilus capsule in with a clean finger after my shower in the morning, and I feel good.

im also gonna try a product called "Flora Fem" which is 6 probiotitic vaginal suppositories for $50 (pricey, i know) , off amazon. com. The reviews are really good, and alot of women are swearing by it. I tend to think Vulvodynia is an imbalance, anyway, the acidophilus capsules vaginally help me, and I feel fine right now.

as far as using your fingers to rub oils around inside the vagina a few times a day, i think Ive changed my mind on that, as I might have actually caused an infection by doing that, as fingers are not always clean, even after you wash them. Also the oils can be very harsh on the tissues, and even ineffective, as I didnt have as much luck with my last infection, (and I scalded my vag, lol ;( ) altho they worked great before. Ive cured problems for myself before with oils.

I find the probiotics, and gentle douching is working much better, at this point, Im taking a break on the oils for awhile.
Im not douching now, as I cured my infection, but i WILL permanently be inserting a femdophilus capsule inside my vag every morning, as I sincerely believe, I was born not having enough of the vaginal flora naturally to ward off these problems. and also taking orally, 2 pills a day.
Ive also started AZO YEAST again, 2 pilss a day orally.

Good luck!

Could you have killed off the good bacteria/yeast with all that you're doing? Im not trying to be rude or anything but that's a whole lot of stuff you were putting in your hooha. I try not to put anything there keeps her happy. But if it works more power to you Smile
