New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

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 …

I am new here and hope to gain some insight into my vulva pain. I suffered for a long time not realizing that there are ways to feel better. I saw the Dr. yesterday and I am starting P/T pelvic and valium suppositories. queen

Had this for 5 years, looking for people who understand

Sat Oct 06, 2018 9:46 pm by blackberrie

Hey all. I'm really struggling to find anyone in real life who can really understand what I'm going through. I've had vestibulodynia for 5 years now and I'm single. Obviously it has completely affected how I approach dating and sex and the fact that I can't really talk to people irl about it has made me feel very lonely. I've found that a lot of the women who have this problem are married and …

Anyone have pain with urination?

Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:35 pm by mertzwl

Hi everyone - I can't believe I've been dealing with this for almost 10 years and an appointment scheduler at a urogyn office is the one to suggest I look into vulvodynia. Honestly, I don't care, I just thankful I might have an answer.

I have pain in one specific spot right around the urethral opening so it always coincides with urinating (it's not a uti). Does anyone else deal with pain …

Diagnosed recently, looking for advice

Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:51 am by Cloudberry

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum! I was diagnosed with vulvodynia/vulvar vestibulitis (still not sure about the difference between all the different terms) a couple of months ago and I could do with some advice. This is probably going to be a lot of text because I just want to get everything off my chest, so please bear with me.

I’m a woman in my late 20s. Before getting diagnosed …

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 …

6 year sufferer but I’ve found some hope

Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:33 am by Npage14

Hey, ladies! I’m new to this support group, I’ve thought about doing something like this for a while so I wanted to try this out! I’ve had vulvodynia for 6 years now, I am self diagnosed. I’m 20 now and the pain started when I had my first encounter with sexual contact when I was 14(I still remained a virgin though it was fingering). For a couple years the pain was so bad I could hardly …

Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

Does heat or cold give you a little relief? Sometimes I'll freeze a water bottle and place it on my lady parts. Wrap in wash cloth or something that won't make the cold unpleasant.

What kind of soap do you use TiNK?? Are you on any meds?? Tell me a little about your situation.

I know it's very difficult to not feel like your alone but I know exactly how you feel. We (VV sufferers) have to move forward. Find a solution.

Hi Evie hun, I do feel some relief from ice cubes and cool swimming pools and the sea on holiday! And a hot bath. I was on Gabapentin but had to stop due to bad side effects.

Hi tinkerbelle2,

I too have been experiencing an acid like feeling "down there". Its been bothering me for about 3 months now. I've let it go much too long, but I've been to busy to see a doctor. It seems to come and go. TMI: but it seems to get worse when I make a bowel movement. Sometimes I wonder if my urine is too acidic and causing the burning feeling. I could very well be your diet. Do you eat a lot of acidic foods? Try removing all acidic foods from your diet, maybe even do a cleanse and after a few weeks see if you feel different. I've always had this kinda of burning rash feeling down there every once in a while. It almost feels like a yeast infection with out the yeast/ odor. I do need to make an appointment with my gyno, I suggest the same for you.

Hi Jen,

I'm just checking in to say that I experience that acidic feeling in EXACTLY the same way and it also gets worse after a BM. I don't think my urine is too acidic (I've ph-tested it), and I've done a low-acid diet for a couple of months and it didn't help. Tomorrow I'm going to see my GP to ask him to refer me to a lab to test for lactobacillosis/cytolitic vaginosis (you can google it if you haven't heard of it, there's one pretty good article written on it, and apparently the acidic feeling can be caused by too many/wrong kind of the good bacteria, lactobacilli). My gyno refuses to test me for it. If you ask your doctor at your next appointment and he/she comes up with a suggestion, could you please post it here? And I will do the same!

Thank you!

Hi Jen and katinstras,

I'm not sure what foods actually are acidic? I became a veggie a few years ago so I don't eat meat and rarely eat fish...I eat a lot of fruit and veg and salady stuff. My favourite food is pasta with tomato and basil lol. And I like chocolate and biscuits ?! I suppose I should research it as I don't know that much about it

I guess citrussy things are acidic. Jen, I also seem to flare up worse after a BM or urine. Owwww! It's confusing because I haven't changed my diet in anyway but maybe I should start to. Maybe we could've just developed some sort of intolerance which contributes to the vvd

Tinkerbelle,

You can check out this link (hope it works): http://www.ic-network.com/patient-resources/diet/diet-introduction/

It talks about the diet for people suffering from interstitial cystitis who normally should avoid acid in their food and beverages.

stinging

Post  drruthfree on Sat May 17, 2014 9:39 pm

Any improvement? I get stinging at same location each time I use compounded vaginal estriol. Why that spot? Tests never show yeast but it does respond to Diflucan. Nobody can figure it out.
