How do you live with this?

Wed Feb 22, 2017 12:15 am by Persevere1990

Hi everyone,

It's great to see there is a support network here... I was diagnosed a few weeks ago and have started nightly treatment with lidocaine cream one week ago. Not noticing any difference yet.

I notice I get flare ups throughout the day, typically after peeing, showering, walking and when I'm stressed. I'm pretty sure my vulvodynia was caused by nerve damage due to a bad case of thrush …

New here- please help

Mon Dec 12, 2016 1:49 am by 1989SBSC

I've been reading these forums for the past year or more and have never posted anything online like this before. I'm overwhelmed and don't even know where to start. Up until a couple years ago, I never had any urinary tract/vaginal problems. Sex (intercourse) always felt good, and I didn't notice any burning feelings in my vagina or urethra. Then, I lived abroad for a year in a hot, tropical …

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

Provoked Vs. Unprovoked Vulvodynia?

Mon Dec 19, 2016 12:03 pm by Sarah08

Hello,

I am just wondering what the difference is between provoked and unprovoked vulvodynia?

I had sex with someone a few months ago and the pain/stinging has been constant ever since. Multiple visits to the GP ruled out any infections and a specialist has since suggested vulvodynia. I'm wondering whether, since it was the sex that brought it on, it would be considered provoked, or since it …

Newlywed and newlydiagnosed- help!

Sun Dec 18, 2016 9:06 am by hollync

Hello, I am 24 and had pain-free sex with my new husband for 3 years before starting to have this pain about 2 years ago. It started after a course of antibiotics, and although I have been on hormonal birth control for over 10 years, I changed to a similar, but different birth control around that time as well. It generally stings and burns, mostly after intercourse.

I finally saw someone about …

Help! Right side Vaginal Pain!

Post  tanyam23xo on Wed May 01, 2013 7:51 pm

Hi everyone.
I am 26 year old female. I have had right side vaginal pain for about 3 years now. Some days it is burning, some days it is pain, some days it is nothing. I dont have any pain durning sex, but after it hurts. I have been to countless doctors. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IS WRONG!! I recently just had a larproscopy done, and they found PID. They removed the PID, and i still have pain. I am thinking about trying Primose Oil, has anyone tried this? I am on an anti-depressant, that helps but the pain comes back. I use to take gabapintin 3 times a day, but i stopped that. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!! Any type of advice would be good. I am starting to lose my mind. I am in consent pain every single day. I use to be very active and now I just want to sleep all the time. I can still have sex. Sex doesnt bother me, slightly, but i can deal with the pain. Please help

Could be trigger points in the pelvic floor or the hip rotators, go and see a womens health physio and have them do an internal examination to see if they can find the spot.

Re: Help! Right side Vaginal Pain!

Post  tanyam23xo on Wed May 01, 2013 8:15 pm

I have been to a pelvic floor therapist. I did therapy for about 5 months. Pain would come back and go away. I even had a steriod injection inserted in my vagina!! I am speechless to what this pain could be. Everything anyone has tried, it doesnt help. I magically don't have pain when I am on my period. But as soon as I am off, the pain is right back. I feel that it is more muscle pain, but I'm not sure on what it could be exactly. Any thoughts?

Re: Help! Right side Vaginal Pain!

Post  tanyam23xo on Thu May 02, 2013 1:46 pm

I havent been to a "Pelvic Floor Specalist" but I have been to an OBYN, about 5 of them. No one knows what is wrong. I just had a laproscopy done, and they found PID. The PID has been removed, but i still have the pain. It hurts to even touch my right side of my vagina. It hurts to walk. I am out of words or ideas at this point. I dont know what to do Sad I am starting to think it is Vulvodynia, but i dont know. I have had ultra sounds, MRIs, blood work etc. NOTHING comes up. I have been on gabapintin, now i am on a anti depressant. I am going on a trip next week. I just want to feel better. When I went to physical therapy, it helped. My pain went away for about 6 months. But it is now back, and it HURTS!

Hi tanyam
Your pain sounds exactly like mine. I have deep right sided vaginal pain constant every day. Mine started after sex. It's kind of a dull sharp ache in my vagina wall sometimes raw. I have seen everyone gynos urologist dermatologists pain doctors etc but have found what is wrong with pelvic women's health physio. I have trigger points all inside my vagina mainly over the obturator internus muscle which connects with the hip. The trigger points are irritating the pudendal nerve causing the pain. My physio can pin point exactly along the nerve where it hurts. I maybe could have sex but I'm single now which is easier for me. But like you the pain came over the sex. Have a look at pudendal neuralgia.

Hi Kate,
So how what do you do to get rid of it? What kind of doctor do you think i should go to? Are you on any current medications? I dont have pain when I am on my period. No pain at all. I do believe its a muscle/nerve issue as well. Is there anything they can do to make it go away?!

Re: Help! Right side Vaginal Pain!

Post  Alana3 on Thu May 02, 2013 2:58 pm

I don't I had provoked vestibuldynia. Message me I need to ask you about Columbus (I'm pondering a move). I see a vulvar specialist in South Florida (where I live), he's my hero. Fixed me up like no ones's business, if you have the funds, I def suggest him, but I understand if you cant. He is ALSO affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic (down here) so that's why I thought maybe head into that direction up there, cant hurt right? My entire vag would hurt when I would have sex, touch it with qtip, or tampon use. But I had surgrey in December, which I'm sure you have seen me talk about on here. I have very little pain now, and I have muscular issues now, but it's no way near as horrible as it was back even 6 months ago Smile But I'm not sure what PID is (i know its pelvic inflammatory disease) but I know nothing more than what it's called, clue me in?

Hi tanyam
I think you should find a women's health pelvic floor physio who has a good knowledge of the pudendal nerve. If you look on the pudendal hope website there is a list of specialist physios. I think you need someone who can give you a thorough pelvic floor examination to see what's going on. I've been having physio for a good few months and it's definitely helping its hurts at the time and afterwards but my trigger points are loosening inside and outside. I take nortriptyline 40mg and lyrical 300mg per day. My nerve is going crazy why no one seems to know.

Kate, does the therapy help your pain? and does the medication? Seems we are on the same medication!

The physio therapy is helping with my pain I have had some pain free days. Does your pain feel deep inside your vagina? Mine is probably about 3 inches inside. I'm not sure about the medication I think it just takes the edge of the pain. The really bad burning has gone but I don't know if it is the medication or just time
