I started having pain after taking yaz birth control pill for 5 months, that was 6 years ago. My doctor said Yaz was one of the worst offenders, and that the 'low estrogen' pills like it cause the most vestibulodynia. Apparently the estrogen in bcp is from horse urine and highly potent, and it shuts down your body's production of testosterone (by increasing sex hormone binding …

This morning my daughter was diagnosed with Vulvodynia. She has been suffering pain since she was 18months and it has taken over two years to get referred to a paediatrician who diagnosed her.
Her symptoms have been intense pain, normally at night. Now she is older she can tell us about it and she says she feels like her 'front bottom's is on fire. She is SO SO distressed when happens. …

Well, I think I can skip the emotional journey, as all of you know what it is like. I am 24 years old, apparently healthy, no UTIs in the past and a couple of yeast infections, but many years …

I joined this forum because I've been feeling really isolated and alone while slogging through a vestibulectomy recovery-hoping to talk to some people who understand!
I'm 28-I was diagnosed with vulvodynia and provoked vestibulitis last year-although I've probably had it forever I just hadn't tried intercourse before haha.
I ended up having a vestibulectomy exactly three months ago and I can't …

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.
