Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

How do you live with this?

Wed Feb 22, 2017 12:15 am by Persevere1990

Hi everyone,

It's great to see there is a support network here... I was diagnosed a few weeks ago and have started nightly treatment with lidocaine cream one week ago. Not noticing any difference yet.

I notice I get flare ups throughout the day, typically after peeing, showering, walking and when I'm stressed. I'm pretty sure my vulvodynia was caused by nerve damage due to a bad case of thrush …

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

Hello all,

I just found this site tonight. I am on my fourth round of antibiotics in a row since Nov. But honestly, have been having the pain, itching, burning for years. I had never heard of this condition until tonight and have not been diagnosed but I feel it has to be what I have. I had my first encounter with burning, itching, pain when I was 12! My mom tried to get me to douche! I had …

Hi everyone, I'm sorry this is going to be long, but please listen and help if you can. I am a 17 year old girl. In february of 2016 I had a mass protruding from my vagina, I went to the er, they didn't know what kind of cyst it was but they did an incision and drainage and put a word catheter in to help the cyst drain. During the procedure I had a sharp pain from where she cut me, but once it …

New here- please help

Mon Dec 12, 2016 1:49 am by 1989SBSC

I've been reading these forums for the past year or more and have never posted anything online like this before. I'm overwhelmed and don't even know where to start. Up until a couple years ago, I never had any urinary tract/vaginal problems. Sex (intercourse) always felt good, and I didn't notice any burning feelings in my vagina or urethra. Then, I lived abroad for a year in a hot, tropical …

Vitamin E? Olive oil?

Post  cupcake25 on Mon Aug 19, 2013 6:19 pm

Has anyone every tried applying vitamin e or olive oil topically? I have a dry spot at the entrance of my vagina, but I'm scared to apply anything as creams/gels seem to make everything worse.

Someone else on here said they were using Coconut Oil as a moisturiser. I've not tried it so don't know if it will work.

I was given a tub of emulsifying ointment (also known as emulsifying wax) which I think is basically a parafin wax that you apply each day. The gyno said it keeps things nice and moisturised and it's really unlikely to cause you to have any sort of reaction.

I've found plain baby oil to be very soothing plus vaseline mixed with a drop of lavendar oil. I think the oil justs stops friction in my case but it really helps. As for infections I think we're all a bit different because I get UTIs if I use water based lubes but not if I use oils. The only way to find out if it's going to help you though is to try it seeing as we're all different!

I use E oil, I think it smooth it, it is not medication so it shouldn't cause any side effect believe me I have used so much medication down there before to treat yeast and bacterial infection and etc. now I can't use anything. V E did helped me at beginning but now doesn't help anymore. I don't know about coconut oil, where can you buy it?

Ive gotten a yeast infection from using coconut oil before, but it did make me feel better while I used it, vitamin e will soothe the area a bit, ive tried it before too, ive also tried primrose oil, and that also made me feel a little better, but you can get a yeast infection.

Thank you, ladies. I think I'm going to opt to stay away from these oils.
Lavrose, did you get a yeast infection from primrose oil? I'm taking it orally, not applying it vaginally. I hope that doesn't run a risk of infection too Shocked

LalaYe- you can get coconut oil from the grocery store (especially Whole Foods, Fresh Market). I cook with it. Be careful about using it vaginally, though. I've heard from several women it causes infections because of its anti-yeast/anti-bacterial properties.

Thanks Alana! I'm taking the primrose oil in hopes that it will help balance stuff out and ease IBS/PMS symptoms. I've also read that over a period of time it has anti-inflammatory properties. I don't expect it to help the V pain much. I'm way too scared to put anything on topically at this point lol.

Coconut oil was ok for me, it is soothing. I would only use any cream as a short term measure anything can irritate me after a while!
