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

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 …

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 …

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?

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Vagisil for pain?

Vagisil for pain?

Post  katie220 on Thu Mar 14, 2013 4:55 pm

Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone has used vagisil for their pain. I heard it has a numbing effect, so I was thinking of using it before sex to cut the pain. Does it make the pain even worse over time? I am trying to be careful with putting too many creams/meds on myself because I believe it might make it worse. Any advice would help. Thanks!

Personally I wouldn't you're only numbing it it's not fixing anything and potentially making the problem worse. My doc wrote me a prescription for something similar but wasn't as harsh maybe try that route?

Hi katie220,

I'm not sure about the vagisil for pain...but there is a cream that you can get from your doctor that will temporarily numb the area you apply it to. It's called Lidocaine. Next time you see your doctor it might be worth asking about. I use it before sex and it helps me stay confortable.

Thanks for the advice guys! I may try it once but if I have any symptoms I definitely won't use it again. I have to be pretty careful at this point.

katie220,

Just so you know, the lidocaine gel burns when you use it like Alana had mentioned, but if you do use it be sure to mix it with some lubricant. By mixing them together it makes the lidocaine less strong, but strong enough to give you some relief with out the burning sensation.

Hi Katie22

I understand what you mean about not wanting to put anything on that would make it worse. I felt the same but i did try lidocaine in the early days of my vvd cos i was desperate for some relief from the pain. My experience was that it worked the first time i used it (burned a bit for about half a min then settled down) but the second time i tried it didn't work i just got more burning. But that extra burning wasn't permanent and did ease off after a while. So worth a try.
