    Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

    Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

    Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

    Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

    Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

    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 …

    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 …

    Fibromyalgia and LDN?

    Post  Mouse on Mon Oct 18, 2010 1:51 am

    I found this really interesting site called curetogether. It allows people to post what ails them, what works to help their pain and then corrolates the data. I can't remember who on here mentioned fibromyalgia but this discussion is interesting especially the comments at the bottom which contradict the title.

    Several people mention getting instant relief from a drug called LDN (Low-Dose Naltrexone). There's also mention of a study on the drug. A couple of the people who comment are in Ireland so it must be available in the UK. I've also posted further comments below. Has anyone tried it? Oh I looked it up on Dr Wiki and I've posted that as well.

    If the link doesn't work just join up and browse, even Vulvodynia gets a mention. You can also track your medical history on there.

    Oh and another thing... I have another disease that makes my life the joy that it is. So when I finished posting all the shizzer that I have, this site matched me up with other people with the same ailments. I have Coeliac Disease and Vulvodynia and wouldn't you know it, I'm not unique! I can now email these people.

    For nearly every symptom I have/had there is a survey to complete. Which in turn produces data for comparison. Treatments are all listed as well.

    That's all I've got for now Smile
