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 …

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 …

Update about myself.

Post  fairymoond84 on Thu Jun 27, 2013 3:03 am

Hi all,
The last time I posted on here was about me thinking that I had acidosis instead of vulvodynia. I did a lot of research and it seemed like acidosis was the cause of why I burned. Well I was very very wrong. And found out the hard way. When I researched about acidosis it suggested to eat foods that were high in the 5 main minerals. One of the main foods was spinach. And to take a supplement with the 5 main minerals. Which those supplements were pretty expensive. Well anyways, I started taking those supplements and starting eating a lot more spinach. BIG BIG mistake. After doing this for a few days I was on fire. First let me point out, I only burn down there. No muscle pain or any other vulvodynia symptoms, just burning. Anyways, I guess I have been trying to diagnose myself in the hopes that I can find my own cure and hoping that I didn't have V. But I do. So after years of being stubborn and trying other cures, I finally started out the low oxalate diet. Once I started reading the list of foods to avoid, everything made so much sense. The spinach, very high on oxalates. After that whole experience with the spinach, I was on fire. As soon as I started following the LOD, the burning lessened. There is no other way around it. If you are like me and you only burn, you have to do the LOD. The food list is very overwhelming. There is so much foods that are high in oxalates. Like milk & dark chocolate, a lot of greens, nuts, berries, wheat, grains etc. You can still eat these foods, but a very very small amount. And of course my favorite foods are on the high list LOL. I also started taking calcium citrate 1,000mg 3 times a day and Magnesium 250mg 1 a day. These have really helped also to where I can still eat some foods high in oxalates. The LOD is on many many articles for V and suggests to do this diet to treat V symptoms. Give this LOD a chance. Start it out slow.
