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 …

I just found this site tonight. I am on my fourth round of antibiotics in a row since Nov. But honestly, have been having the pain, itching, burning for years. I had never heard of this condition until tonight and have not been diagnosed but I feel it has to be what I have. I had my first encounter with burning, itching, pain when I was 12! My mom tried to get me to douche! I had …

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 …

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 …

I finally saw someone about …
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
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.
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?!
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.
