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 …

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 …

Xylocaine (lidocaine) spray is working as a temporary fix

Post  tinkerbelle2 on Wed Oct 09, 2013 7:39 am

I was in so much pain that I wasn't sleeping and couldn't focus on anything so I went to my local pharmacy/chemist. I spoke with the chemist privately, really nice guy, he said although he didn't know a lot about vvd he had heard of it. A lot of the options I'd already tried, so he suggested this spray. I'd tried a lidocaine gel before that you apply with syringe but it really didn't numb me enough and made me extra sore. However, this spray stuff is really helping! I just needed some relief til my next appointment on Nov 18th. He said this stuff is used by dentists and because it's safe for the delicate mouth membranes, it should be okay for inside the vagina. It even says in the leaflet that it can be used during childbirth. He said to spray every couple hours and see how you go. So far so good! I had a bit of trouble getting the bluddy nozzle to work but if you spray it a few times it starts to. It does sting slightly at first but then really seems to numb the pain for a couple hours. And it contains essence of banana!

I just got my referral letter today ! It says it takes 4 to 6 weeks. They will be performing a biopsy according to their letter.
Right now I am stuffing my face with cod oil (anti-inflammatory), B12, Calcium and Magnesium for my nerve pain and pulsating.

I am very curios if they will be able to help me, St Mary's is one of the few with their own Vulval Pain Clinic.
I'm perfectly realistic though...I have three problems down there: vaginismus, bartholin gland recurring cysts plus VVS.

Ahh I see! Hopefully it is closer to 4 weeks then. Bless you having 3 things down there to deal with, 1 is bad enough! Crying or Very sad if they are specialist I'm sure they will be able to do something for you! If I have no success with my next appointment I will be booking in with a specialist. I really feel we can all get better if we try and try and try!
