Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

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 …

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 …

Are you getting wet?

Post  JemimaSurrender on Sat May 25, 2013 12:09 pm

I was just about to apologise for the upcoming crude content, then remembered who I was talking to, you're all used to it by now!

So, I've had about a year of being able to have sex mostly pain free, although it is starting to come back slightly now and it does hurt during penetration. But what is bothering me the most is not only my completely flat sex drive, but also the fact that for some reason I'm not getting wet!

It makes no difference whether I'm at it myself, or it's my boyfriend... I get turned on, and it's all completely normal, then I touch and there's nothing there, it's literally bone dry. It's horrible. It makes me frustrated, angry and sad and I just want to scream in the middle of it. I know at the time that my boyfriend knows I'm not wet and he's probably thinking he's not turning me on, even though he already knows it's an issue.

I just don't know what to do. I've told my doctor and she gave me Replens, but when I use it all it does it come out of me in gloopy chunks, it's not very nice at all and completely inappropriate when you're at it, gross! She also said that that's the only thing I can try that doesn't involve giving me hormones, which she can't do because that seems to be what caused all the problems in the first place.

Has anyone else had this problem before, and have they tried anything good that worked?

Also, can anyone recommend any good lube, or pinpoint what it is in the ingredients that irritates? I work in a sex shop and have access to a wiiiiide range of different ones, but they all seem to sting me so much, any tips would be great!

Aaaand, if anyone knows of any supplements or any suggestions of how to pick your sex drive back up that would be amazing! I need it back!!

Thank you so much for reading!

I feel the exact same way. Before my vulvodynia issue I would always get turned on right away and get really wet, but now it seems like I don't produce any natural lube It's so frustrating. I also find that all store brand lube stings and burns, so now I just use my own spit. I wish I could figure this out and get back to normal. I am very fortunate to be able to have pain free sex these days, four years ago I never thought that would be possible.

Hi Jemima, I see this is an old post but if you're still active on here then you could try Sylk. It works for me and hasn't caused any stinging or irritation

Sylk gave me a nasty flare-up of interstitial cystitis. Astroglide was horrible. Yes water-based isn't bad, and is safe with silicone toys, but most of the time I use Pink silicone, which is fabulous. I do get wet, but I've found that if I slap on lube before he even touches me, things go so much better overall. It gives the pain less chance to get started.

Are you on hormonal contraception? That can cause dryness.

I used to have this problem. I wouldn't know now as I barely go near the area.
It's because of the Bartholin glands, I honestly think sometimes this illness is caused by those stupid glands malfunctioning.

Their role is to provide natural lubrication in the body.
If you get dryness accompanied by a bit of swelling, then yes, it's definitely the glands.
Although I have no idea how to solve that

Umm it's not always the glands, I was having this problem to and have absolutely no problems with my glands, they're intact and doing well. I was perfectly fine and than I had my vestibulectomy, and than the whole "wet" issue came in, but like 6 months later that was all better. So I don't necessarily think you can pin point. Vaginismus could play a HUGE role in this and if you're put off by sex because it hurts (not saying its in your head) it could also be affected. Everyone is different. Perhaps also checking your hormone levels could help too. If you're hormones are off, you'll possibly have an issue with getting aroused.
