Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

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 …

Hi All,

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

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 …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

cloth sanitary pads

Post  Delilah1 on Sat Oct 05, 2013 1:47 am

So, I tried cloth sanitary pads. I bought Glad Rags and Domino pads. I can not believe how much more comfortable my menses was this month!!! I have to admit the thought of using a washable/reusable pad was not appealing to me. Boy was I wrong.
There is absolutely no odor to your menstrual flow when you are using these. When I used disposable pads I would get so raw during my period. There was always a slight odor too with those pads. Probably because of the plastic backing. There is nothing like that with the cloth pads. Much more comfortable, no odor and felt so much more natural. I honestly never would have thought I would feel that way. What a surprise. They were easy to clean too.

Huzzah!

I found Glad Rags a bit meh compared with other brands, to be honest. The Domino pads look quite good. How are you finding them in terms of fit and so forth?

I don't know why people find cloth pads so scary - it's no scarier than wearing knickers, after all. Is it because we've grown up with white disposables, plus a strong menstruation taboo, and thus think the icky things are normal and the only possibility? Or are people afraid there will be a smell? As you said, there's practically no smell, and dry-pailing works a treat for washing them.

I agree Takver, the Glad Rags are not as nice as the Domino. The Domino pads are wonderful. So well made, soft and fit great!
Do you have a brand that you particularly like?

Honestly, after trying the cloth pads and loving them so much I became angry. Angry that society has made menstruation something to be ashamed of. Marketing scented pads and tampons to "hide the odor" when in actuality there is no odor. The odor comes from the disposable pads. I felt like I had fallen for one big lie!

Don't mean to sound so dramatic. Guess dealing with Vulvodynia has made me look at my body in a new way. I appreciate it more now.
