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 …

Ovarian Cysts

Post  JemimaSurrender on Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:48 am

I was just wondering if anyone has, or have had, an ovarian cyst?

I first had mine, a dermoid cyst, just over two years ago (and subsequently found I had polycystic ovaries too) and opted to have it removed. Then about six months ago I found I've got another one, much bigger, and growing all the time. They do run in families, and my sister has suffered with them terribly for years, so I expect to always have them on and off.

But I was just curious to see if anyone else has had them and whether they find there's any correlation between having one and flare ups?

I was feeling better for about thirteen months and sex was tolerable, but now it's getting bad again and sex is pretty painful so I wasn't sure if it's somehow related to the cyst.

I think I'll opt to have this one out too. It's pretty awful because you're damned if you do and damned if you don't, either way I could lose an ovary, and have to endure more scars too.

I think we all deserve medals...

I had a dermoid cyst when i was 16 removed and they found another one the following year but it went away on its own. I also have endometriosis so pain with sex is a definitely heightened ugh!

Re: Ovarian Cysts

I don't think my pain is any worse because of the cyst in that sense. I mean, like, it doesn't hurt when it's being prodded internally or anything like that, but I do have an inclination that the cyst is upsetting my hormones, which then makes my skin burn and sting more.

Anyway, I saw my consultant last week and they gave me the option of leaving it in or having it out. I was kind of torn. If I leave it in the chances are it will continue to grow as it has done and may take over my ovary (as it did with my sister, resulting in her loosing it), or, I can have it out, risking damage to the ovary anyway.

I decided to go ahead with it anyway. I figured, by the time I get a date for the op it will only have grown more, but if I change my mind in the meantime I can always cancel it.

I don't really want another op though. The scarring has only just started to go down from my last one (over two years ago), but, what can you do eh?

Do you ever wonder if men have it this hard!?
