So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

severe pain after sex please help :'(

Post  KerryLouise17 on Wed May 01, 2013 12:13 am

Hello my name is Kerry
I have been diognosed with Volvadynia and I have had it for a year now, I would really appreciate it if there is anyone here who could help me and give me tips on how to stop the pain, the pain starts of on the outside and about 2 inches in the inside of my vagina when I have sex and as soon as we start that's when I get the pain it starts off with a shooting pain and then I get the most horrible burning pain I have ever experienced, it gets so bad that the pain actually makes me cry Sad When I get this burning pain I have the pain for up to 3 to 4 days and it don't go away it then really hurts to wipe myself when I go to the toilet and also when I am washing, I even get this burning pain when I use tampons. I don't know if this is to do with how it started but last year I started the conraceptive injection and as soon as I went onto that that is when I started getting the pain, I reall cannot cope anymore I am only 17 years of age and I don't think I should be getting this pain! I don't think anyone should get this pain! Its really hard to explain. Just how much it hurts to my boyfriend I think he understands but I know he will never understand the actually pain I am going through Sad if anyone can help me can you please inbox me.
Thankyou so much if anyone can help I'm in so much pain and I just need to get rid of it x

Hi Kerry
I had the perfect sex life with an amazing boyfriend when I was 19 then suddenly the pain started. I was too embarrassed to see someone for weeks because the whole examination is violating and upsetting and I know now for good reason why I put it off. I was passed between 7 or 8 different doctors all examining me taking swabs and sending me away with clear test results and telling me it was in my head. My boyfriend was so sympathetic tried to understand but didnt know how to deal with me in pain and the crying and eventually didnt want to touch me because of being scared to hurt me. Finally a doctor diagnosed me with vulvodynia and I was put into amitrytholine to try and mend the exposed nerve fibres causing the pain. After about 6months the pain was completely gone but so was all sensation. I underwent counselling and sexual physiotherapy for months and the pleasure sensation never returned. I was diagnosed with depression and my relationship fell apart because he couldn't cope and I'd completely changed. It's been 2 years and up until last year things were starting to get bak on track. I was gaining some sensation again but then the pain returned with my new boyfriend.

I can't recommend a particular quick fix but creams don't seem to last and I'm sure your doctor will tell you this is a treatable condition but isn't curable. I just wanted to give you a heads up that taking the low dose of antidepressants that they prescribe DO work but you need to be prepared for any side effects that come with it and make sure you can emotionally handle it because this is not an easy condition to live with as I'm sure everyone will agree. But the sooner you start treatment the sooner the pain will go and if you're lucky your boyfriend will support you through it.

I don't know if this has been any help but I really wish you the best of luck because I know exactly how it feels to be so angry at the world for getting this condition so young and not knowing why but there are ways to stop it

Severe pain after sex

Post  Sunflower82 on Sat Jun 08, 2013 6:59 am

Dear Kerry,
First let me start by saying I understand your pain. Is your pain provoked or do you get unprovoked pain? I get both and have been suffering for years. I was also on the depo injection but this didn't seem to affect my pain, but for me it was useful as my periods stopped I could no longer use tampons and sanitary towels also made me uncomfortable. Do your on research on to tampons, if I had done this when I was younger I don't think I would ever use them. Try natural sanitary towels.

In term of the pain after sex the only think that had helped me is seeing a women's Heath Physio, in order to release the muscles and to de sensitise the area. This can be painful and first and symptoms can get worse but now I able able to have more or less psi free sex. Have a cool bath after sex just water no soap ect

Do you use lube? I need to use lots and least 20mls, try a live called yes it has no horrible chemicals.


I have also been on medication as well.

Hope this helps

Kt

I tried everything that was mentioned above and than my doctor finally labeled me a surgery case last year. I had the surgery in december and am doing a lot better now. I still get pain from muscle spasms that mimic vulvodynia but they are easier to deal with since they can release. Maybe ask your doctor to write you a script of lube with.lidocaine in it so it numbs you while having sex. Unfortunately, you'll feel it after the fact. I also tried a gabapentin, ami, lidocaine mix that sometimes helps people but did little for me. Worst condition ever and really frustrating which makes you feel like less of a person because its supposed to be something everyone can do. I haven't had sex yet but use dilators everyday and the v pain isnt there just muscular. So if you're a candidate or it's ever mentioned you may want to consider it.
