From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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 …

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

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

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.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

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? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Joy 123 my story

Post  Joy 123 on Thu Apr 25, 2013 7:07 am

I am 58 years of age, married for 37 years, had vaginal inflammation off and on for 30 years, appearing to occurr especially after drinking bubbly wines or good quality wines, bubbly strawberry wine or even strong mixed drinks. Diflucan tablets helped initially but over time no longer work as with most thrush treatments. Sometimes when I had no inflammation I'd have a period then inflammation followed taking me months to recover using all the candida medications available. I have given 3 Gyno's a year each to try to help me, but each one virtually put me through the same medications. I am now allergic to the preservatives in any vaginal treatments and Hormone Replacement Therapy gives my fibroids. At age 50 my periods ceased never to return again, thank goodness but it seems like my vulvodynia is here to stay as for the last 8 years I have not been able to have sex because of how sore and raw I feel. My GP suggested I try HRT patches which I did and to my disbelief my vaginal pain went and sex was at last comfortable. This relief only lasted 4 months then pain was back, so now the patches don't work. I have recently spent 2 months on Naturopath treatment taking bucket loads of pro-biotics and a diet of unprocessed foods, but with no improvement. My next and I feel possibly last idea is to try a Doctor who specializes in Chinese Medicine, has anyone had any possitive results from Chinese Medicine.

I have that too with some alcoholic drinks, what do you mean by inflammation tho? Mine just burns and goes away after a minute its the weirdest thing. It hits me and then goes away so weird. I hate being a girl. We get shit on, unless a woman is healthy we get the raw end Sad

You're vaginal tissue gets thinner and burns at menopause, it could just be normal wear and tear. I forget what that's called, but there are creams and such to help. I did acupuncture, and it helped, but it didn't take it away 100%. Sorry to hear that your pain came back that sucks, it's like you feel better than BAM! Something else to hinder you and your vagina rears its ugly head. So frustrating!
