Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico


I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

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 …

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Recovered from Vulvodynia

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

my life story

Post  haykay23 on Thu Oct 17, 2013 3:36 am

My name is Hayley and I am twenty years old.  I have been recently officially diagnosed with vulvodynia.  For sometime now I have been hovering around the idea of having it but finally have a NP who gave me diagnosis.

Upon examination it was found that the mucosal glands around the vaginal opening were inflamed and very irriatated.  They hurt upon being touched and just felt burny/ sore.  She concluded that I had vv but it was localized and provoked.  She said that it was referring pain to my bladder, which made it feel like I had to pee, but the burning was actually external. I am currently on ETA cream, 7% lidocain, nortriptyline thirty mg, and ten mg of singulair.  My urgency symptoms still persist and seem to cycle with my period.  I am currently on mirocete after apri, which I was only on for two months and did not like.  I am currently sexually active but have not been since my current symptoms started most recently.  I have only had one partner and so has he.  I have also been checked for STDs, which I knew I did not have but I just needed to be sure.  I have had pretty bland diet and only drink on weekends and chose beer as it seems to be the least deadly choice. Basically what I’m looking for is if anyone else has had the 'gotta go symptoms', found a BC that works best, or has any tips for managing flares.  I am very stressed with school as I am in pharmacy school currently and have a heavy course load.

Hey Hayley,

I'm Belle, nice to meet you Smile

I have read your story, sorry to hear that you've had such a rough time!

My vvd is slightly different to yours as I get the pain at 2 points one just inside and one at the opening. I really have no clue as to what triggered mine but I think it could have been a yeast or urine infection.

I too get that need to pee feeling, and sometimes it is very sore just after weeing. If I am at home I dab the area with a wet flannel afterwards. Currently the only relief I get is hot baths and swimming - the water seems to soothe the area. For others this would aggravate their problem further. I have also been using a topical spray called Xylocaine which is not actually meant to be used vaginally but is used to numb the mouth by dentists. The chemist said if it's safe for the moutg it should be okay for down there as it's similar delicate skin. I have also been drinking a lot of cranberry juice.

I think you should keep persisting with doctors, that's what I'm gonna do! It's great that you're close with your mum, I am too and it really helps.

Just remember you're not alone, the girls on this forum are really lovely and will be there for you and support you through whatever!

Thanks for your reply.
I have found that taking aveeno oatmeal baths seems to help. The water seems to subside my symptoms.
Will have to look into the xylocine item.
Thank you for the support

Haykay please go and have your pelvic alignment and pelvic floor examined by a Women's Health Physio, the compression shorts could be helping because of an SI problem which could be tightening your pelvic floor up which does lead to UTIs because of incomplete emptying of the bladder (tight muscles don't allow the urine out easily) and a feeling of a UTI when one isn't present due to pelvic floor trigger points. If you do one thing to try and find the answer then please do see someone who knows about both pelvic alignment and pelvic floor trigger points as a first port of call.
