Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

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 …

Cured of Vulvodynia

Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:39 am by angelique2016

I used to post on this forum a long time ago and told everyone of how I was cured of my vulvodynia by a (Melbourne Australia) female dermatologist, she put me on very low doses of Nortriptyline (Allergron) for pain management about 10mgs I believe it was, and she also had me use Advantan Fatty Ointment (not the cream) (although I saw the cream for sale on ebay from germany) so it might help, as …

Vulvodynia and IVF? Anyone done this? What does it do to the vulvadynia?

Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:03 am by Carolyn4

Hi everyone,

I have had vulvodynia since age 27--I am now 43 and it has been in pretty good remission.  I control it with acupuncture and herbs, and some cranial sacral therapy.  I have a 5 year old, had a pretty uneventful pregnancy which ended in a c-section.  My VV worsened after that, and I have worked hard to get it back under control (it took over a year to get it back into pretty good …

-use frozen peas to stop the swelling

As of now I am …

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 …

Anyone from the PNW?

Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:54 am by jungleclover

I'm located near Portland and I would be really cool to actually meet someone with this issue. I think my roommate in college technically had this problem. She had an overgrown hymen removed and can't deal with penetration as a result. But she is gay so it seems like it hasn't been a huge problem for her (although we didn't talk about it much so there was possibly more to it than she let on). …

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 …

Does anybody have any tips on how to stay intimate?

Post  Nelsonhs30 on Sun Oct 20, 2013 4:07 am

Since sex isn't an option until I find the right treatment to make my pain go away, does anybody have an tips or advice on other things to do to maintain that closeness with your partner? Blowjobs are getting boring and taking turns on each other is just too much of a chore after so long of this. Any tips to spice things up?

Roleplay I guess would be one way

Could you explain which definition of "sex" you're using? PIV sex, or any kind of genital contact? Also what you mean about "taking turns on each other"? It gives us more of an idea of how many options are open to you.

Blowjobs do get boring don't they! lol. I'm no expert but maybe you could like dress up for him and talk dirty? my boyfriend loves all that. Or watch something kinky. Or you could just accept that sex isn't right for you at the moment and be intimate and affectionate in other ways such as kissing and cuddling

anal-)

Post  lavrose on Tue Oct 22, 2013 11:27 pm

anal sex is actually pretty awesome. Especially if hes not too big and you guys take it slow at first. The orgasms (if your stimulating your clit while hes doing it) are incredible. 10 xs more intense, Im serious.

Anal sex has been my standby for 4 years now, and its saved me so much more insanity and frustration dealing with this condition, if you cum, its as satisfying if not more satisfying than vaginal. Once i stated doing it, I understood what all the fuss was about with gay men, lol!! Smile)

Theres something about anal sex that is hard to explain and very intense, and men Love it too, so try it, and remember to keep CLEAN, and shower each and everytime you do it, right after, both of you, do not fall asleep without showing, youll get an infection very easily.
be very careful not to let bacteria get into your vag area, no mishaps, etc..

I'm a man and have only ever been intimate with one woman with v (now my wife) so I'm no expert, but I've read that it affects different women differently. For my wife, penetration is an absolute no-no, but oral doesn't cause a flare-up and can sometimes help. If that's the case then maybe just get your man to go down on you. We guys tend to enjoy doing that :-)

I appreciate all the feedback! Thank you! My bf and I have discussed anal but it sounds quite scary to me. I heard that is not an area to penetrate because it can easily tear. It may be something to consider until I am able to have vaginal sex again but I am not 100% sold on the idea.

I don't think you should try vaginal sex if you have any concerns that it could trigger or worsen your condition. No man who loves a woman would want to risk that. Only do things when you feel the desire, and focus on stuff that you enjoy and make you feel better rather than worse.
