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.

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 …

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 …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

Hi everyone. I've been suffering from vulvodynia for 20 years. I'm just looking for a support system and some positives stories. Any successes with drugs?

Hello Lainee! This is a great place to get some support. I'm 40 also and have been suffering with vulvodynia for 18 years - was just diagnosed in December. Actually, my doctors haven't really settled on an official diagnosis yet. Still waiting on viable treatment options as well so I'm not anywhere close to a success story yet. I'm hopeful, though, that somewhere down the road, my pain will resolve and my husband and I can begin to build a healthy sexual relationship. Have you had much success with doctors?

I kinda gave up on all the doctors long time ago. They didn't diagnose me - i did by stumbling across a magazine article. I find that Viaderm ointment helps. I have goid days and bad days. I know my limits. I did try Lyrica for a year. It helped withthe burning not so much with the pain but it put me in better spirits that i even got pregnant with my second child. I stopped it though because i got pregnant.

I just recently rebounded though because i tried an SSRI called Celexa. I' m kicking myself now for taking it. I was doing fine and now i'm right back at square one.

Where are you located?

I'm in the US - South Carolina. I have only recently found a doctor who knows anything about this. Went through about 9 doctors over 18 years who told me that there was nothing physically wrong with me and suggested I continue with marriage counseling. Like you, I pretty much self-diagnosed through info I found online back in October. Then found a doctor through NVA's provider list and saw him in December. He was the first doctor who validated my experience of pain - what a relief to finally be believed! Mine is considered "provoked" vulvodynia as I only have pain with intercourse and gyn exams. I didn't realize until I started reading these boards that so many women have pain all the time. I feel rather fortunate now. Back in October I stopped having intercourse with my husband. So, except for the several gyn exams to try to figure this out, I've been pain free since October. Now I'm just trying to work through emotional/relational issues in hopes that my marriage can improve. The pain/intercourse issue has essentially run it into the ground.

Welcome to the forum.

I am currently on Lyrica (pregabalin) 300mg.

The pain isn't so constant and is now mainly provoked.

Hi Lainee

Welcome - this forum is great for support & keeping you going.
I use notriptyline which has got rid of the burning pain. I'm also having PT to help with the tight muscles.
