I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

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

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

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 …

What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

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

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

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 …

Condoms Less Painful?

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Hello everyone,

Many years ago i was struck with V, it was painful and got worst and worst, eventually i could not sit, could not stand, could not walk, could not swim in a swimming pool anymore. I was becoming bedridden, it frightened …

Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

is there a relationship with monthly cramps?

is there a relationship with monthly cramps?

Post  Elc88 on Fri Aug 02, 2013 9:40 pm

This is probably a strange one, and I hope it hasn't been asked before. I have always suffered from painful periods - most months, I wind up curled up in a little ball trying not to faint! I sometimes wonder if what I'm going through is in any way related. I do notice a slightly worse burning semsation, but use natural products. Does anyone else suffer with this as well? My periods have never been the same since I started on the microgynon pill ages ago, and that's when all my pain first started (though it got a lot worse when I went on my second contraceptive pill)

I have it too and was just diagnosed with endometriosis so maybe it's related to that too? But vulvodynia wouldn't cause cramps but during my period I itch and burn worse too but cramps I woukd imagine wouldnt go with v.

I don't think the v causes the cramps, but wondered if cramps are something that can lead to V. I know they're very separate things, but if you're used to crippling pain in that region (and it's all in a way linked to reproduction) is it possible it's a trigger?

You probably have two separate things going on. Like I said I had vulvodynia and on top if that endometriosis. When you get cramps I would assume that the pain might be worse because your muscles tighten down there too but I doubt its related. When I had vulvodynia it was alwqys worse with my period but so were my cramps. I finally went on birth control and that helped big time

I get painful periods, I don't think they are particularly linked? Cramps are the womb contracting, although if we have pelvic floor dysfunction then I do wonder if the womb cramps could set off the pelvic floor muscles?
I find my vulvodynia is worse just before a period so when I get the cramps the V has eased off. Cramps are pretty bad today and I said I would do dinner Sad gonna get hubby to help and dose myself up...... With whiskey if I need to! Lol
