New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support.

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.

For 4 years post …

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 …

Internal anal fissures and VVS, somebody kill me please!

Internal anal fissures and VVS, somebody kill me please!

Post  kezzo2013 on Sat May 11, 2013 10:13 pm

Hi everyone.

I have secondary VVS which also affects other parts of my genitals..
I got genital warts about 7 years ago when i was 18 from the first boyfriend i ever had. I got them treated with a mix of warticon cream and cryotherapy. The warts all cleared up and i have never got them since but anyway in the years following the cryotherapy i noticed sex was becoming more and more painful. I investigated once and realised there was a tiny paper like cut at the opening of my vaginal entrance where i had gotten the cryotherapy. It seems the cryotherapy has weakened the skin and now it tears everytime i have sex and is ruining my sex life. In the past year, the skin had started tearing externally around my anus and in the past 8/9 months had started tearing internally everytime i have a bowel movement which is incredibly painful and then for hours afterwards, its like im passing glass. I honestly cant take it anymore, i feel like giving up. The pain has also become chronic at the entrance of my vagina too when I attempt sex or some kinds of foreplay.

Iv done a lot of research and im fairly positive the cryotherapy has caused nerve damage as I have the tearing of the skin, everywhere I got the cryotherapy. The skin even tears between my buttcheeks sometimes when I walk. My now ex boyfriend of 6 years was not really supportive but at least he knew why i had the pain in the first place but i feel like i cant tell anyone else the reason so i think most of my friends think i exaggerate it. I really feel like life is not worth living being in continous pain and knowing i cant have sex either because of more pain and I cant seem to find anyone with a similar experience from cryotherapy on the internet? I feel so alone, all I do is cry. I don't want to think about this or feel this anymore No

Someone else on the forum had a similar wart experience hopefully she sees this. I think I read she did a cream or topical something that helped I think the treatment thins your vaginal walls (from what I remember dont quote me on it!) and causes fissures. I think there are positive ways to treat it tho, so please don't give up! I had a doctor tell me I would never be cured 5 years later I have very little pain due to persistance and wanting to have sex so badly. So just because you haven't found something to help yet doesn't mean that you will always be like this. Very Happy

that's brilliant! hopefully u will enjoy loads and loads of sex in the future!! god vaginas are such hard work, guys really don't know how lucky they are, everything is so much more clear cut for them! iv been taking zinc tablets the last couple of days and it has made a massive difference with regards pain and healing of fissures, I recommend everyone to try it, I wonder if anyone else has had this experience with zinc supplements.. xx

Currently I hate my vagina it's burning like mad bitch won't leave me alone but I guess im lucky I just used my dialator (really my vibrator lol) and it didn't hurt so all in all im lucky I just hate it I hate having periods and I sometimes struggle with being a girl I hate wearing bras too. I have bad cysts and oh dear God the bras kill. I've been recently going without and noticed my boobs got perkier AND the pain before my periods is gone weird. I wear them only when absolutely necessary I hate being a girl ugh sorry im venting.

I don't want to add anything else in my supplements but I'm so glad you're feeling good!
