I have yet to be diagnosed but I believe I have symptoms of provoked vulvar vestibulitis since 2 months ago after being treated with lots of (redundant) medications for a vaginal thrush which I wouldn't think was a bad one.
Since then my pain remained and recently I've been to a gynae twice who treated me with a potent steroid that took away some inflammation and stinging feeling …

I didn't log on as no alert messages (places head in palms!!!) so would visit the forum from time to time but would find it difficult to deal with the lack of relief or cure. So it was easier to try to ignore and get on with my life (after the last consultant …

I'm at a stage in my life where my vulva pain has completely taken over. I'm depressed and even suicidal and after crying a ton today, decided to look for support.
I'm from the UK, I'm 31 and I've suffered with pain, burning and stinging of the vulva, clitoris and vestibule for 12years after a yeast infection and a bladder infection.
I've struggled over the last decade trying to …

I feel like an expert on the subject of Vulvodynia. So much so, that I have had doctors admit to me that I know more about it than them. I'm sure a lot of you have seen this. So little is know about this in the medical world that it can become very frustrating to find answers.
I'm 30 years old. Ever since I lost my virginity at the age of 17, I have had vaginal …

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.
