Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

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!
Alana, sent you a private message:)

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
