I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

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'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 …

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 …

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 feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Anyway i feel at a loss. This new treatment is exciting but at the same time i just dont feel like …

Thank you Zarli! Do you still have redness? Does the med help with that too? How did all this start for you?

Yes the redness has gone and swelling too. I get itchy if I use the wrong soap or if I go for a swim but they gave me a cream which is working for that. My story is long starting 6 years ago, to cut it short 'V' raised its ugly head over night with neuralgia type pain, redness, rawness, itchy etc...
For me its the pain that was the worst I couldn't handle it and it scares me to even think about it to be honest. After many Doctors and specialist I was finely put on Ami starting at 10mg for aweek then up to 20mg until I got to 35gm which then stopped all SYMPTOMS for 4 years. Then it stopped working and I went on Lyrica and Nortriptyline and it went again.
That's the short of it...

Good Luck Delilah and I'm always here for you
Zxx

Hi Delilah - Yes it helped me with the burning and the rawness - I was "lucky" in that I only needed a 10mg dose. I swopped to nortriptyline though - cos the side effects from the ami were too much.
