    Constant pain, I want to die.

    Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

    I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

    For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

    I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

    Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25


    I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

    To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

    I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

    Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured


    Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

    Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Eliza Barach and I was diagnosed with vulvodynia in October of 2017. I'm also PhD student at the State University of New York at Albany. I work several professors at SUNY, but one in particular, Dr. Mitch Earleywine researches marijuana and its possible efficacy as an alternative treatment. Our previous examined cannabis and symptoms of PMS/PMDD and found that women …

    Dear all,

    Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
    I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist

    after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

    New and desperate for advice

    Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:37 pm by srbry

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here and was told to find a support group because this is all getting a bit much really...

    I lost my virginity when I was 18 and it hurt - that was normal. Loads of women had told me that it hurt so that was fine I didn't question that. I was with the same guy for a couple of months and each time after that it was uncomfortable and not great. I didn't tell him because I …

    Can A Cut In Vestibule cause Vulvodynia?

    Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:07 am by rockylife

    Can a cut in the vestibule area cause vulvodynia? Is it possible that some nerve a were damaged that’s why I feel this pain in my area without visible lesions?

    Seriously!?!? Endometriosis and yeast

    Post  Alana3 on Tue Jul 23, 2013 8:07 pm

    So I keep getting reoccurring yeast infections which as you can imagine are a PAIN IN THE ASS! No matter what I do, the yeast comes back and with it irritation and pain. So I went into the doctor today and we did my annual at the same time. I told him that I was having some right sided pain whenever I used my dilators and during my period. Drumroll please... He strongly thinks I have endometriosis, so I go in for an ultrasound on Friday. As you can imagine, I am really bummed, I am "cured" of vulvodynia, only to be thrown back to the wolves and have reoccurring yeast and endometriosis. He is putting me on continual birth control pills so I hopefully (yeah right I'm sure something will go wrong, please) won't get my period anymore. I would never wish this on anyone, but I am getting so fricken annoyed by constantly having something wrong with me. It's really awful. Why me and not someone else? Not that I would ever want anyone to actually go thru this.

    So my question is does anyone else on here have endometriosis and/or reoccurring yeast? I am at my wits end, and as you can imagine, the pain of endo sucks. Plus it's not JUST during my period, but anytime I use my dilators, have an exam, etc etc. It feels like someone is applying pressure to what I assume is my ovary. I guess the good news is that I won't get a period assuming my body decides to cut me a break with this birth control. GER I am so frustrated, I thought I paid my dues with vulvodynia. Nope just kidding, I'm not done with medical hell Sad Any advice is welcome! Thanks in advance!
