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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

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 …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

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


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 …

My story...

Post  cristina1133 on Thu May 23, 2013 12:22 pm

Hi everyone! My name is Cristina I'm italian but i currently live in London.
I stated suffering of vuvlodinya 9 months ago, and everything started without no reason or previous symptoms, just one day it came. I spent the first 4 months seeing doctors and no one was able to give me a right diagnosis and made me take loads of antibiotics saying that they reconised that I was feeling bad and it could have been some kind of sofisticated virus not visible on the analysis but that we had to kill in any case.
While I started these cures I felt worseand worse. When it started I'd just moved to the UK, I will always remember it as the worst moment of my life.. So difficoult to handle. I didn't even know how to ask for a GP, went to the hospital several time but too difficoults to explain how I was feeling.. I mean I know a bit of english (in fact I also saysorry for that, hope you understant).
By the way the previous doctors that I mentioned are italian from my city which is Bari , in the very south of Italy, because finally I decided to be cured by my doctors. What happened I've already told youbefore.
They never convinced me and I've always belived that was not the right way and I started searching on the internet untill I finally discovered the vulvodynia.I have to thank Aida who is also a member of this forum plus she is the creator of the italian forum Volvodiniapuntoinfo.com because I found all the information about it and also a very qualified doctor in Rome who is curing me from last december. I'm taking as medicines Laroxyl which is the antidepressant used most for the vulvodynia but I'm also doing pelvic physioterapy.
Today I feel much better and If I only think how I was feeling bad until a few months ago i would probably kill myself.. It's really hard but we have to belive it will finish one day! it's also difficoult to find comprehension around us, isn't it? I decided to share my story here as well, also if some of you have any suggestion about specialists, cures, supports here in London I would much aprreciate because I'm here alone and once a month I usually go to rome to see my doctor. It's also hard to afford.. I don't know if here in the UK there is any support in terms of money for the vulvodynia, because in Italy we do not have any advantage and the cure are very expensive! I realized preatty soon that you must be rich to cure the vulvodynia! Rolling Eyes that's the end of the history! Thanks to everyone who read my story, thank you girls for your patience, I wish the best of luck for all of us!
take care

Hey Cristina,

I see this post is old, , hope things have improved.

I know what you mean about not wanting to live with this! It can really ruin things.

What are your symptoms and is your pain provoked or unprovoked?
