Vulvadynia

Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:53 pm by Linda Williams

I am 68 years old and a year ago was diagnosed with vestibulitis, then vulvadynia. I have a history of chinchilla bladder infections, have had major bladder repair, hysterectomy, mid 30's, an auto immune disease. I take a daily antibiotic to keep UTI's at bay. My doctor has done the Quip test which was uncomfortable but did not test anything. I use Premarin vaginal cream 2 times a week. These …

Just Diagnosed with Vulvadynia

Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:11 pm by CherryTree23

Well, I was just diagnosed today, yay...my symptoms are just burning pain in vaginal opening. This all came about after taking Bactrim, Monistat, Clindomycin and Diflucan. This doctor was extremely confident I have Vulvadynia. Also told me my vaginal skin isn't red. Yes, it is, mine isn't typically electric red. He prescribed Ampytripline (sp) said, I have a very mild case, and worse case …

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Got rid of soy no more problems!

Post  TheresaA. on Sun Feb 24, 2013 8:06 pm

Hi, just thought I needed to post here about something that worked for me. I have had vulvodynia for 10 years, it was only occasionally at first. But then 2 years ago we went vegan. Because of that I started adding much more soy to my diet. My symptoms became much worse and nearly every day. Last month I started doing the Clean diet by Dr Junger. It has you get off all soy, wheat, corn and other food items. I started reading labels and found that soy was in all sorts of things that you would not expect it to be in including some herbal teas. I was also taking soy capsules and using a lotion that had soy in it. Anyways, I know it was the soy, because I had given up the other items before with no relief. Within a few days of starting the diet my symptoms were disappearing and by one week in they were completely gone. It has now been 4 weeks and absolutely no pain! I can't tell you how excited I am about this because the last few years I was never without pain for more than 1 day! I never thought it could be the soy products I was using, but now I have to share with everyone suffering from the same thing an option that worked for me. Give it a try, read labels and quit soy and see if it helps you too! It's worth a shot!

Isn't soy supposed to be a phytoestrogen? If so then that would indicate your problem was hormone imbalance if the symptoms were helped by removing the soy. Long may your painfree days continue!

Thanks!

I believe it is a phytoestrogen, and I was taking it for hot flashes thinking it would help with that. I had been taking soy capsules for probably 7 years. The funny thing is, when I stopped all the soy not only did my vulvodynia pain go away but so did the hot flashes! If I'd only quit sooner my life (and my husbands life) would have been so much better Smile
