From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

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 …

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

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

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 …

Could it be?

Post  quell183 on Thu Oct 03, 2013 4:06 am

So I've posted a topic before asking if anyoine felt the same way i did, as in the symptoms i have been having but im not sure. Im thinking maybe this could be a really bad yeast infection or something? Ive never had one so i don't really know what they are like, so maybe you can help me out?
I have a burning feeling on the left side of my vagina, i would say its like a really hot feeling inside. At my last appointment the dr said he saw discharge when he inserted the speculum (isnt discharge normal?)He did a culture and nothing showed up. I do get discharge, sometimes its really runny like water and other times its a lot thicker and kind of white. My vagina does not itch or smell or anything and i was told there was a little tiny cut at the entrance and the q tip test showed i was very sensitive in a particular area.I had gotten meds before but they didnt help. Im thinking maybe its a stubborn infection that maybe didnt show up in the cultures because i read stories on here about women who have discovered its just a bad infection. The only thing that makes me think it is something else is the fact that it is only on 1 side.
This first happened may 2013 so 5 months ago. What do you think?

Hi quell, that is what I am wondering too!

I have had thrush before and this feels like a worse version of that.

But then i don't get why cultures wouldn't show yeast? Ahh it's so confusing and frustrating.
Tomorrow i think i'll buy a canesten suppository and oral tablet and see if anything happens.

Yea it is very confusing. I read some women had to take very high dosages in order for it to go away, not just a one time thing. Hopefully it works for you. Let us know what happens. Good luck

My experience of yeast infections is they also involve itching and have a cottage cheese type discharge not just the normal milky or clear discharge. I've had loads of them and every time those symptoms have been present.

That is true...when I had thrush it was itchy but also was terribly sore and fiery internally.

No luck with the canesten as yet

Hello, quell! It's tough to say whether it's yeast or not sometimes. I'd suspect that if you had labs done and they came up negative that you don't have an infection, but you should be sure the doctor tested for different strains of yeast. The discharge you describe sounds normal, though. I learned the hard way that our body is supposed to produce discharge (I was incredibly uneducated and over medicated thinking I had an infection when I didn't). Having said all that, perhaps you are having vaginal dryness? Or it could simply be inflammation and irritation from medication- have you been trying a lot of topical creams? My pain was at its worst when I was applying anything and everything the doctors gave me.
