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 …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. 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 …

The pill and premarin

The pill and premarin

Post  Annie82 on Wed Jul 24, 2013 10:47 am

Hi everyone. Well, once I changed my pill from Yaz to Minesse - the burning sandpaper feeling inside stopped. Also no longer have horrible pains during ovulation. The minesse was too light (4 weeks of bleeding on the second pack) so I switch to Mercilon. Only one month in, so I hope it goes well. Went to the chiropractor for help with my hip and the opening of my vagina also relaxed after a few weeks of treatment - very little pain when inserting dialators now. Also had very sensitive skin on the little labias - after a few months of using premarin and 2% lignocaine this has improved. I stopped using lignocaine in the last two weeks. Toilet paper doesn't hurt me so much anymore and I can walk a bit without feeling like my little labia is going to shrivel up and fall off. Hope this information helps someone. I sometimes do have a pulling sensation in my left outer labia - does anyone else have this?

On another note - I was a new relationship when this all started and I handled it so badly that I ended up losing a great guy. I'm trying to be strong and get through it but it seems like everywhere I turn it's sex, sex, sex - any advice on how to cope? I'm 31 years old but he's the first man I've ever loved enough to be with and it all started falling to pieces a few weeks later. I waited for that one man and it was so special and now it's all gone. Feeling lost. Any advice or similar story would help. And for what it's worth - I think we're all very brave for getting out of bed in the morning and facing the day. I know one person told me - it's not like you have cancer. Well, yes, it's not. But I still went through a lot with this thing - a lot of body pains and emotional and I'm sure for many of us, it's very difficult. So I do think we're very brave and strong for putting up a fight.

Hi Annie,

I agree it's annoying when people compare it to other pains or conditions - doesn't mean it isn't debilitating! They obviously don't understand.

How are you now? Xx

Re: The pill and premarin

Annie, I'm so sorry to hear about your suffering. I see some unfortunate similarities in our stories. I understand the birth control cycle. I think my problems all began because of birth control. I've quit it altogether and am feeling better, but still not 100% normal. Also, lidocaine caused me more pain and suffering than anything else. Be careful what you put down there! I had a doctor throw creams and pills at me without testing or culturing, and I just kept getting worse and worse. I've quit using all medications, antibiotics, and anti-fungals, and feel much better (that's not to say don't use those things if you have an infection).

I've recently suffered the break up of my first love as well. We had some problems outside of V, but the issues with intimacy was the catalyst. I'm sorry this is how your first love ended. Experiencing a break up is painful enough without having to deal with V. If you're feeling the same anger and sadness I am, it's sometimes hard to keep going. To be positive, though-- you are still young. Don't give up hope of finding love. Maybe finding someone else right now doesn't even sound appealing, but one day it will. And you'll have the happy, healthy relationship you deserve. Until then, focus on yourself. Look at the silver lining- you are now able to focus on becoming healthy and nurturing your body, without having to worry about someone else. I know this may seem like a weak light at the end of the tunnel, but one day soon it will all feel okay again.
