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 …

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 …

Botox injections

Post  KJ on Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:54 pm

Hi, I'm new to this forum but have had vulvodynia for over 5 years!! Just recently,
I received my first round of botox injections...9 days ago. Big flare up and no relief so far. Has anyone else been through the process? If so, what was the outcome? I was hopeful, but now I feel terrible and worried that nothing will work!

Did you do that for vulovdynia or vaginismus? I heard that it could help muscles and I have heard of people having success from it. I chose not to do it and just dilated instead. Have you contacted your doctor yet, maybe it's a normal side effect? The good news is, it eventually runs its course and goes away. But maybe your body just needs to adjust and it will be better in a few weeks. Keep us updated and good luck!!

I was diagnosed "this time" with vestibulitis... He said the botox would stop the muscle spasms...it has just made my life hard...more Vicodin and I'm just exhausted from being in pain.

hmm... Have you tried physical therapy?? For muscles, it works pretty well! But probably don't try anything new quite yet. I had a vestibulectomy in December and went thru PT with the thought of if it didn't work, I would try botox. I only mention PT because if botox doesn't work, maybe you could try that and feel better? But that probably doesn't make you too excited to hear that. This is such a frustrating condition, because sometimes it takes a long time to find out if something works. I would say wait a few more weeks and see what happens. If it doesn't work for you keep in mind that it will eventually wear off and you can try something new after. Where are you from? Hang in there, you will find something that works for you! Smile

Yes, I actually start physical therapy on Monday...I've done it before without success but never in combination with the botox...I wonder if a vestibulectomy is in my future...what were your symptoms? I'm in Sacramento California area.

Hi, I had a burning sensation, in and out too. It was like hot sandpaper was constantly rubbing against me. Not sure if you have a similar experience. The thing that helped me was trigger point therapy. I'm not completely better yet but the burning sensation is gone completely. Only skin sensitivity on the right side is left. I don't know anything about botox (sorry) but I hope you feel better soon.
